10.6: Install Battery Update 1.4 under Snow Leopard
Authored by: tpressman on May 03, '11 06:48:29AM

Download and mount "BatteryUpdate1.4.dmg"

To Run Pacifist:

1. download Pacifist [http://www.charlessoft.com/] and launch it
2. click "Open Package..."
3. ignore the registration screen - wait for 15 seconds, click "Not Yet"
4. navigate to /Volumes/Battery Update 1.4/BatteryUpdate1.4.pkg
5. select "Contents of BatteryUpdate1.4.pkg" and then click the "Install" button in the upper left corner of the Pacifist window
6. enter your administrator password

Now run Disk Utility, repair permissions, SHUT DOWN (not Reboot [not sure if this is necessary, but couldn't hurt]), and then boot the computer.

You don't get any feedback that the update takes place. You must go to System Profiler and check the "Power" section to see if the pack lot code is changed to 0003.
