Snow Leo 911 Pro v1.4 [Intel] (Flash Drives & HD’s) | Mac Os X

Snow Leo 911 Pro v1.4 [Intel] (Flash Drives & HD’s) | Mac Os X | 1.8 GB

What is Snow Leo 911 Pro?
An OSX 10.6.5 Intel bootable disk image that can be copied to a 4 GB hard disk or Flash Drive. This is basically a lean and mean Snow Leopard OS X 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.

- 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 is under 3 gigabytes 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 OS X 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 newest 10.6.x combo updater or 10.6 installer DVD to add additional languages and pick your own.
- To license iDefrag you will use a special application which is is basically a stand-alone Applescript applet I provided in the root directory. Run the iDefrag Residual File Cleaner then reboot back to Snow Leo Pro and launch iDefrag to create a fresh license file automatically. The special cleaning app will change the date to July, remove a bunch a of temp and cache files that iDefrag uses to monitor the date with to alow it to be licensed again. Make sure to set your date back to normal once you have create a licence file.
- The very first time you boot from Snow Leo Pro it will be a little slower than normal because it has to create all new caches and temp files. The next time you boot after that it , it should be much faster starting up.
- This only comes in ENGLISH but if you copied this disk image to a large enough drive you can use the newest 10.6.x combo updater or 10.6 installer DVD to add additional languages and pick your own.
- Little Snitch version 2.2.4 (1503) 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.
- Safari has a special bookmarks menu called Mac Help with links to many helpful sites. Bookmarks and idea courtesy of Lurker @ MSJ.

What’s New In Version 1.3
• Updated OS X to 10.6.5 Build 10H574
• Updated tons of tools and a few new ones. Check the 3rd part list for them.
• New Disk image icon courtesy of Hoplite @ MSJ
• A special invisible file called .metadata_never_index has been added to the root directory of Snow Leo Pro to stop SpotLight from indexing the volume. SpotLight by default is turned off to avoid slowdowns and background tasks which may interfere with diagnostics and repairs.
• testdisk 6.11.3 is undocumented and can be found in the Applications folder for those that know how to use it since it’s command line based.
