Updated without a sweat. Seems like nothing more than a trivial bugfix build.
And meanwhile in Dev-land it's said that first beta of 10.8.2 is out, with a combo update sized up to 642MB.

Hi there.
Here was so sweet to update!
No problems at all.
But, one little thing is quite strange... the AppStore still telling me that 10.8.1 version is available even after the install.

Don't understand that but no big deal at all.

Cheers,
bb.

Initial update took less than a minute to update and restart. Now I've got another update (10.8.1) in the app-store at 4.34 gig. Anyone else noticing this?

Seems that my Mountain Lion wanted to update twice.
Now that I did the other update it asked me too, App Store don't show any new update.

Cheers,

Yep...if one decides to update directly through the package on Apple website then afterwards pops up in software update the 10.8.1 full image installer do download.

All my hacks were updated without any issues. Keep em'coming Apple! :)

Curiously, it does not appears for me in the App Store, so i downloaded it using the link Jack provided.

At the App Store, though, there's a general description of what the update fixes. Since i tend to guide myself by the quote "if it's not broken, then don't fix it", and since i'm neither experiencing any of the glitches reported at the App Store reviews, nor need pinyin, exchange and thunderbolt fixes because i'm not chinese, don't use exchange and don't have thunderbolt ports in my Asus T101-MT, and unless someone wiser than me gives a good reason on the contrary, i'm waiting the 10.8.2 combo. :)

Updated without trouble. For the question of "Can the GM be updated?" A resounding YES!

Downloading the update ATM. I do have my AppleHDA kext hacked, so it might affect that or something when I update.

Ah, it's only a relatively minor update. No kexts affected.

Stay away from it it broke my perfectly really good working 10.8. I downloaded with the link from jack butlers post.

Such an warning / comment about OS X updates is complete useless if you dont tell others what exact is "broken" , what special patches your hardware already use+need (beside dsdt + chameleon) and what system hardware parts you have.
For sure, the more extra patches + special install tools (.kext and framework patches) or other special things your system need beside normal dsdt + chameleon + vanilla system parts, the more risk is each update if you dont have your needed patched also installed (before reboot!)
I see no problem with 10.8.1 in general - it has near nothing changed in the .kext / framework parts. So an very safe update!
In the new 10.8.2 dev build (i use) there is much more changed / updated (= normal ;) ) - such install may run in problems / needs some additional work before rebboting.
But my 10.8.2 runs well - i only used patchted RTC.
