AppleJack 1.4.3rc3 adds Intel support
AppleJack, the wildly popular open source, single user mode troubleshooting tool for Macs, has finally been updated to support Intel-based Macs. Version 1.4.3rc3, a release candidate, is downloadable now on sourceforge and the final version is expected within the week.
Besides Intel compatibility, the following tweaks have been made to the new version:
- Added an automated uninstaller routine, to enable easy and almost foolproof uninstallation of AppleJack.
- Added /var/root/Library/Caches to the system cache cleanup routine.
- Experimental expert mode exists, but is currently hidden until it can be tested further. (see Appendix B of the Read Me). The only well-tested options at this point are the memory test using the included Memtest utility, and the option to disable auto login.
- Improved the internal coding of user-input prompts. Uses a standardized interface for these functions now.
- The preference file check now uses a null byte character to separate files rather than an arbitrary "improbable" string.
