Instructions on Manually Updating to 10.4.6 from a working 10.4.4/10.4.5 Installation, Intel Chipset
GMA900, modded ATI QE CI friendly, mounting shares, Personal File Sharing, autologin, widget flipping etc, :thumbsdown_anim:

----------------GUIDE BEGINS HERE-----------------------

obtain MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.6Intel.dmg, Maxxuss Patch Solution v1.0 for 10.4.5, and Pacifist 2.0, from Charlessoft.com


install Pacifist 2.0 to your Applications folder


extract Maxxuss Patch Solution, then copy the Decrypted_Files folder, to the root "/" of your OS X installation.

navigate to the copied folder and open /Decrypted_Files/replace.sh with TextEdit.app


function platformCheck
IS8G1454=`grep 8G1454 $VERSFILE | wc -l`
if [ $IS8G1454 == 0 ]; then
echo "Your Mac OS X installation is not a 10.4.5 8G1454 build."

backspace to delete the highlighted text, then Save and quit TextEdit.


open Terminal.app, located in Applications/Utilities

type in the following...

mkdir /backups
mkdir /backups4.6
cd /System/Library
cp -R Extensions SystemProfiler /backups
cd Frameworks
cp -R Kernel.framework OpenGL.framework /backups
cp /sbin/mount* /backups


mount MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.6Intel.dmg
right click on the MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.6Intel.pkg and "Open with" >> "Other", navigate to Pacifist 2.0 you've installed
in your Applications Folder.

Pacifist will open and a 15 second timer will run as it is unregistered. click on "Not Yet"

use Ctrl, to select EVERYTHING, ONE AT A TIME, EXCEPT---- mach_kernel ----
do not select them all at once using shift.
do not deselect anything.
if mach_kernel is accidently selected, shut down and restart Pacifist, and reselect

right click on selected blue highlighted files and "Install to Default Location"

click "Install" on the popup, leave the Administrative Priviliges box checked

type in your password to authenticate when required

two popups will come up, "Bundle Already Exists" and "File Already Exists",
check "Don't Ask Again..." for both,
click on "Update" for Bundles,
click on "Replace" for Files

after installation of files completes, Reboot.


at boot, hit F8 to access the prompt and type in the options, -x -s
hit enter

type in the following...

mount -uw /
cd /System/Library
mv Extensions /backups4.6
cd Frameworks
mv OpenGL.framework /backups4.6
cd /backups
mv mount* /sbin
cp -R Extensions /System/Library
cp -R SystemProfiler /System/Library
cp -R OpenGL.framework /System/Library/Frameworks
cd Kernel.framework/Versions/A/Resources
cp *.plist /System/Library/Frameworks/Kernel.framework/Versions/A/Resources
rm /usr/sbin/AppleFileServer
ln -s /System/Library/CoreServices/AppleFileServer.app/Contents/MacOS/AppleFileServer /usr/sbin/AppleFileServer
cd /Decrypted_Files

shutdown -r now


as soon as you get into OS X, open Disk Utility from your Applications/Utilities folder and repair permissions on
your OS X installation, then open terminal and type...

sudo update_prebinding -root / -force

(after prebinding ends, which might take a while, you will have access to the prompt again)
close terminal. :angry:


-------------------GUIDE ENDS HERE------------------------------

Attn: 10.4.6 supported, ATA, Nvidia, GMA950 users, 10.4.6 Extensions & OpenGL.framework backed up
to "/backups4.6" for your updating and/or tweaking convenience. remember, most 10.4.6 extensions are
useless for most people, and will only cause heartache. :blink:

I can also confirm that updating from 10.4.5 to 10.4.7 works using this method.
