I wouldn't entirely say without problems because unless your DSDT is worked out to perfection you might have to do slight fixes like say for GPU or audio etc.

Yes, I forgot to mention. Audio could be a problem. Since I have an external sound card, I never had this problem since version 10.6.3.
But thanks to Insanelymac and chameleon team, all problems disappear quickly. :yoji:

Without worries is a bit understated. Every new update could incorporate severe kext changes in the OS which could lead to an unoperateble system. Always have a cloned drive before updating releases. But yes you can use either the Combo Update or Software update.

What Morphium said is 100% correct, I have a cloned drive laying around just in case, that way nothing will be lost.
