Excuse me if I sound retarded but I'm still lost here.

I have a working Tiger 10.4.10 install (see sig) and would like to know what exactly I have to do after getting the Leopard DVD.

Thx

Could it be possible to install Leopard and patch it with Marvin's tool from the Installer? I install the OS, reboot and launch the installer again and open this utility from Terminal. Would that work or is it a waste of time? Then I wouldn't need two OS X installations ;)

One more thing, do I have to patch the installer before using it?

Thanks!

I've updated my 10.5.1 components using "Software Update"... (I know it's m fault) now Mac boots normally... I can see the desktop... but in 10-20sec the screen goes black and I'm forced to login window... I login - the same happens...

I'm sure I have to patch my files, but the problem is that I have patcher package made with Marvin's DVD Utility before instaling that updates...
(I've tried to run those patcher - no changes)

I wonder if there is some kinda of non-GUI version of the patcher that I can run from single-user mode?
Or can someone post here patcher for the latest, fully updated Leo?

What are the possible reasons for Utility to hang my machine when it finds any encrypted binary? I feel panic.

Would be great if this worked on a leopard install that keeps rebooting to the login screen. I have a 2nd Mac and would like to run it over the network to patch the buggy install.

Also tried booting from the install cd and launching Marvin with open, but "open requires some user to be logged in a the console, even when run as root" and after that I gave up.

I cannot seem to patch my Leopard anymore with Marvin's Utility from within Leopard, from boot or from my Tiger 10.4.10 install.

I have a lot of files to patch but it doesn't even start the process and comes up with this error message:

Thanks alot for making this great utility! It would be awesome to have a command line version of this program, then we would able to boot with -s after installing updates then patch and just continue to boot up the system. We wouldnt need to get in to a working os x install to patch.

So how to use this? I run it and it finds a few CPUIDS but after that it doesn't seem to do much. I load the txt file that says it has CPUIDS in it and the Utility says it doesn't.... what gives?

hi i have a q if anyone still ever read this does the marvin util patch the kernel too or is that something you have to get specif for your install. i am runing 10.4.9 and i am trying to upgrade to 10.4.11 and i was wondering if i could just prepatch everything and than just install like a regular install or do i still need to omit the kernell and setain files from installing. :(

this is the best find any AMD user could find Just install any update from apple run this application (of course restoring mach_kernel and certain kext files) and your system is ready to go what else could you wantWell we could do with a utility that hacks/modifys the Mach_kernel file so you can use the latest (or does it exist)this is the best find any AMD user could find Just install any update from apple run this application (of course restoring mach_kernel and certain kext files) and your system is ready to go what else could you wantWell we could do with a utility that hacks/modifys the Mach_kernel file so you can use the latest (or does it exist)

I've tried to patch NVDAResman.kext with this utility, it produces the following patch:

If I run Marvin's AMD Utility it finds the cpuid again and generates same patch. Any ideas?

Logic studio 8 says 'not supported on this architecture'... running AMD +4800 would this patch help? it found the cpuids on logic, mainstage, etc.. and i patched using Marvins util... but still no luck. Is anyone running Logic on AMD?

Yes it would fix this. Every Apple (Proper) app will probably have an Intel CPUID, so patching them would be necessary and Marvin's will do so for you. That's how I run Logic.
