Well if it is a corrupt character palette browse to /System/Library/Caches and delete the following files then reboot:
com.apple.IntlDataCache.le
com.apple.IntlDataCache.le.kbdx
com.apple.IntlDataCache.le.sbdl
com.apple.IntlDataCache.le.tecx

You would then need to run the installer again. As you see the 2 lines from my log below yours should look very similar.

Still doesn't work...

I used the iATKOS_v1.0ir2.iso DVD in case you were wondering... By the way, I'm very grateful for all the help you're giving me. :)

Unfortunately I have no way of knowing if anything is missing from that release. Maybe when I finish up a few more things and have a chance to upload to my FTP I could convince you to give it a try, see if the same problem exists.

Works, but is it meant to show the CPU overclocked speed or tbe default CPU speed?

Well after a bit of trial and error I figured I would share my progress here to get more people to test it. This is just an installer that grabs your cpu info and outputs it for the "About this Mac" window. Please try it and report back, I have included support for all languages, so hopefully it works for everyone.

AboutThisMac

Thanks it works fine

If you try the last one I posted it should pull the cpu speed like profiler does, so it should be correct.

Is there a way to uninstall it? I want to edit with "AboutThisMac.strings" but when I edit it, it says the same thing on the About This Mac as the installer made it.
Please help.

Ditto on the question about the uninstalation (new word)

I installed it on my MacBook for some strange reason... this app makes users of real Macs feel left out :)

How do you make the About This Mac screen with a dark gray background like above?

I love how it looks, even one thats transparent I have seen, but I don't know how to make it like that :/

Browse to /System/Library/CoreServices/Resources/<your language> and open AppleSystemInfo.strings and scroll down to unknown, as most cpu's that are reported as such. Just change the text where you currently see your cpu info back to "unkown" or whatever you want.
