Mountain Lion 10.8.2

Recommended Posts


10.8.2 final is out

The OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.2 update is recommended for all OS X Mountain Lion users and includes new features and fixes.

Updating your system

You should back up your system before installation; you can use Time Machine.

Do not interrupt the installation process once you have started to update your system.

You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modifications installed, or if you've modified the operating system through other means.

Choose Apple () menu > Software Update… to check for the latest Apple software via the Mac App Store, including this update.

Other software updates available for your computer may appear, which you should install. Note that an update's size may vary from computer to computer when installed using Software Update. Also, some updates must be installed prior to others.

You can also download the manual update installer. This is a useful option when you need to update multiple computers but only want to download the update once. These versions of the standalone installers are available from Apple Support Downloads.

Updated from 10.8.1 to 10.8.2 through app store. Restarted to a KP. Booted the machine in safe mode and replaced AppleACPIPlatform.kext with AppleACPIPlatform.kext (10.8.1) rebooted everything works fine.

Edit: 28/09/2012 - Attached the AppleACPIPlatform.kext (10.8.1) in case if anyone needs it.
