    Is that ok if I just download and install combo update rather than through software update? MacBook Air 2011.

    That appears to be the current reccomendation if you want to upgrade to 10.7.3 from 10.7.2 or earlier. If you've already updated through software updates without issue, you should be in the clear.

    For those that have upgraded successfully, is the upgrade worth it?

     

    Any noticable differences?

    I haven't noticed any difference, but I only downloaded it 12 hours ago.  Read about the update and what it includes here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5048

    Thanks. But I suppose that folks, stating the current software update issues, have also never had problems with that earlier. I always prefer to update through software update since it offers, in my opinion, the best configuration of update for a particular Mac (notebook or desktop). But reading this thread become confused and I am not surprised that Apple causes failure after failure. Just wanted to make sure that combo update makes no harm I have 10.7.2. now, and software update shows 1.02 gb for my MBA 2011 - I suppose that combo update (1.26 gb) will cut off unnecessary components when being installed?

    I was always taught to update with the Combo Update as it stopped fragmented updates, by that I mean just adding on updated bits and pieces. The Combo was more like a fresh install in some respects. I do smaller updates with Software Update, but never use it for major OS and Security Updates. Also I can keep them if another computer needs the update.

     

    Thanks

    I got the Late 2008 White MacBook and no problems at all.

    Glad I did not upgrade yet! I'm seing a client tomorrow to deliver my work...

     

    I wonder if this has something to do with the apps restart while reboot? I've noticed (among the numerous Lions's bugs) that this feature was often an issue.

    Anyway I think that Lion is the worst OSX that Apple ever did. No more Rosetta, very unstable, not finished, very very ugly sidebars icons…

     

    Hey Apple!! Drop for some time your iThnigies and get back to he Mac!

    So get to work. Thanks.

    So, I have a Mac mini (Mid 2011) and the finder crashes - I can't open a new window ... Tried to reinstall via Recovery partition - now I am back to 10.7.2 but it stil crashes. Wanted to update via combo update but the finder tells me that the dmg ist currupted (wrong checksum). ***?!

    Okay, had to redownload it 5 times to get a working image. Trying to update via combo right now.

  • Mr Saphique Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I encountered none of those problems and I'm using Lion since release.

    Shame on you, Apple!

    First the the buggy iOS5 with all kinds of issues that have yet to be resolved, then the TC and Airport firmwares (7.6 and 7.6.1) I can't use because they cripple my TC and Airport Express, now the Lion 10.7.3 update that crippled my Mac to a degree that I have to restore from TM for SIX OR SEVEN HOURS!

     

    I see a constant degrading of Apple updates for virtually all their product lines.

    It's sad to see that, especially because Apple doesn't need to care about all kinds of hardware variants like MS, which is the main reason for Win's sh*ttyness.

     

    I'm especially disappointed because I only switched to Mac almost exactly 1 year ago and became an Apple promotor because it just worked!

    Within this single year, Apple managed to lose my confidence in them.

    Sad, really.

    The same thing happened to me. Nothing except iTunes & iCal would start. I got round it by starting from the Recovery disk and re-installing OSX. It took about ninety minutes to download and reinstall but it worked and now I have 10.7.3 working fine. This was hpurs after problems were first surfacing and I think it's scandelous that Apple are still allowing this download to be accessed knowing it will cause a significant number of users problems.

  • David Stempnakowski Level 2 Level 2 (320 points)

    I was able to boot to the recovery partition. I chose to do a re-install of Lion.  The system re-downloaded Lion and did the install and after the restart I had a working install of 10.7.3.  I have a relatively fast net connection so the re-download only took a few minutes, but it was faster than using my USB TimeMachine disk plus the system was restored to where it was before I did the original 10.7.3 update.  My TimeMachine drive hadn't been plugged in for the past few days so the last backup was a little dated.

  • boyfromoz Level 1 Level 1 (45 points)

    So you had the CUI CUI CUI error as well? It doesn't seem to be on many updates though. did you do the software update one or that combo one.

     

    thank you

  • Martin Crawley1 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Yes, the CUI CUI CUIO killed my iMac. Fortunately I held fire on my MBP. Yes, I did Software Update on my iMac. I should have read the Discussions first. :-) I have downloaded the combo for my MBP. I'm going to do that now. Fingers crossed....
