Good news, Hackintoshers! If you followed our most recent guides to installing Snow Leopard on a PC from start to finish or the updated guide to building a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, no hacking required, yesterday’s OS X 10.6.3 update should go off without a hitch.
That means the process involved in updating your Lifehacker-approved system is dead simple — it’s the same one regular Mac owners use. Launch Software Update, grab the update and restart. The only problem I’ve noticed so far: The wallpaper on my second monitor was reset to the default. I’m guessing this has nothing to do with the Hackintosh, but who knows. Either way, it’s not much to worry about.
Note: To be very clear, I’m referring only to Hackintosh systems built using our instructions. If you built a different Hackintosh, be it a netbook or any system that didn’t use the main recommended hardware in our build, your mileage may vary. I can only vouch for the system I built.
