Ok, this is a reference guide, and may not be needed by some of you.


I've had lot's of trouble trying to solve the dreaded "About This Mac" crashing, but I finally found a solution. There is a ToH kext available, and it does it's job well, even on my 10.5.5 system.


First, download this ToH appleSMBIOS: AppleSMBIOS.kext.zip


Install it into /System/Library/Extensions


Authenticate, and then open terminal and enter:

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleSMBIOS.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleSMBIOS.kext
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext


Reboot and enjoy a working "About This Mac". Works on 10.5.5.
