Thanks... I should have also asked if by changing the serial to a store bought would let me use the apple updates without hacking them in?

 

it depends on your system,setup and the release - not on the serial.

 

for example: 10.5.2 and 10.5.3 updates needed a workaround - 10.5.4 update could be done online.

only issue: if you change your serial it could happen that you have to license some of your apps once more.

I appreciate it.

 

Hey, I am running Kalyway vanilla 10.5.2 - so it would be safe for me to run the system update to 10.5.4 directly from the software update utility on the mac?

 

Sorry for the newb questions...

 

thanks for the help...

No you can't upgrade from 10.5.2 directly try this

lol, why are u changing the serial number in smbios? that doesnt do anything at all. OS X doesnt have licenses or activation or even a serial number.
