An OSX 10.6.3 Intel bootable disk image that can be copied to a 4 GB hard disk or Flash Drive. This is basically a lean and mean 10.6.3 boot volume with all non-essential fluff deleted but the items deleted should NOT affect the performance or compatibility of the tools included. And I also basically turned off virtual memory swap files.
What is Snow Leo 911 Pro? - Special features of Snow Leo Pro include the flexibility of building up the stripped down OS X or customizing it to your heart's content, provided you have enough free space on the volume. - The ability to install future 10.6.x updates, install additional 10.6 add-ons like fonts, languages, printers , developer tools, etc. and add your own tools or update the existing ones easily! - Snow Leo Pro has also gone above and beyond what Apple did to make the OS X pure Intel only. I manually removed the PPC coding from dozens of 10.6 OS X components and from all the applications as well both Apple's along with the 3rd party ones. - Snow Leo Pro is also taking advantage of 10.6's "HFS Compression" feature by using this on-the-fly compression on any and all allowable files and folders on Snow Leo Pro. - Snow Leo 911 Pro v1.0 is a mere 2.6 gigabytes (viewed on 10.6.x) to help try and squeeze it onto most 4GB Flash Drives. Which should still leave plenty of room for cache files ! - Snow Leo Pro has the latest Apple OSX 10.6.3 components and critical OS related updates. - All of the software should be fully working and registered. - This only comes in ENGLISH but if you copied this disk image to a large enough drive you can use the 10.6.3 combo updater or 10.6 installer DVD to add additional languages and pick your own. - Little Snitch 2.2.2 was installed, but it may ask you to revert to defaults and have blank rules as a security warning the first time you start up after Snow Leo Pro was restored to a volume. Just ignore the warning and use it with the rules I pre-made.
Version 1.2.1 - Permissions fixed, oddball errors fixed and some more tweaking to the OS - Turned off hibernation mode's sleep VM image for Mac portable users, this would have consumed 1-2 gigabytes of space and could lead to the OS hanging - More typos fixed
Version 1.2 - 10.6.3 combo applied bringing the OS to up to 10.6.3 build 10D573 - Quite a few of the tools were updated - License files added for iDefrag and iPartition - Lurker has graciously supplied a ton of bookmarks for Mac related help sites. Look for Mac Help in Safari's bookmark bar. - Fixed a ton of typos and still missed some more :lol: - And a tool was added; TinkerTool System 2.2
