How to Install DP4 Software Update

Recommended Posts

First of all, I want to clear some things up.

 

1. This is my first guide on InsanelyMac. It may not be the best.

2. I did this with the help of my friend, pndo1 on insanelymac, so thank him too.

 

That's it. Only 2 things. Now let's get on with this guide!

 

1. Boot Lion. Start Software update and download the Lion DP4 Update. It will download. It will say "Restart to Install Updates". Don't do it. It will install automatically. Now. hit Apple>Reboot. When it asks to install updates, DECLINE!

 

2. Boot into Snowy. Browse Lion HD/Library/Updates. Look through the folders. One will contain "LionSWUpdate.pkg".

 

3. Double click LionSWUpdate.pkg. Continue through the install but right before the window to install hit "Change Install Location" And select your Lion Hard Drive. Continue the install.

 

4. Once installed, copy back and hackintosh kexts (fakesmc, etc) and delete whatever you had to delete to install Lion. E.g I had to delete AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment Kexts.

 

5. Reboot into Lion. If there is a new Login screen, You did it!

 

Congrats! You installed DP5! Or whatever its called... :D

This is NOT necessary.

Software Update works fine on it's own; at least it did on my rig for updating the DP4. Maybe you're talking about trying to update from a lesser version to the latest version?

I had to do it this way cuz I got KP on restarting and I couldn't update it trough Sowtfare Update.

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "
      <key>KextsToPatch</key>
              <array>
                  <dict>
                      <key>Comment</key>
                      <string>USB 10.13.4+ by PMHeart</string>
                      <key>Disabled</key>
                      <false/>
                      <key>Find</key>
                      <data>
                      g32UDw+DlwQAAA==
                      </data>
                      <key>InfoPlistPatch</key>
                      <false/>
                      <key>MatchOS</key>

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
