Apple today pushed the latest OSX update, 10.6.5. I can happily report that the update does not break a Hackintosh install on the Dell Mini 10v.

If you’re currently running a previous edition of 10.6.x or earlier, here’s how to safely upgrade to 10.6.5:

  1. Run the latest version of Netbook Installer [direct link to file] set to defaults
  2. Restart your machine
  3. Install the update through Software Update
  4. Restart

You’ll find it helpful to repair disk permissions through disk utility. I also ran a CleanMyMac session.
