Is there a way to reliably edit/amend a bplist used by the system? (Specifically .GlobalPreferences.plist) (I have User, not Developer.)
Yes, if you have plutil. I don't remember if this is part of the Developer Tools, or part of the system. Look for /usr/bin/plutil.
plutil -convert xml1 /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist
Now you can edit it. When finished,
plutil -convert binary1 /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plistiBook dual USB (10.4.11), MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
