|OS X 10.7.3 Delta Updates Pulled|
Apple has pulled the 10.7.3 (Delta) updaters from their D/L page and now the original links for the Delta Updates are redirected to the Combo versions for both Client and Server. (10.7.3 Client Combo and 10.7.3 Server Combo.)
Hopefully as seen with Security Update 2012-001 for Snow Leopard, there will be a (fixed) "v1.1" posted soon. Many have reported various problems after the 10.7.3 delta/software update version applied. Reapplying w/Combo Updater is an old tip and has helped for some but won't be a fix for every problem. (And for CoreDuo (unsupported) Macs w/Core 2 Duo CPU upgrades, as noted here last week the Combo updater reinstalls the Lion supported models plist file.)
FYI on Combo Update Build(s):
A reader sent a note that the current 10.7.3 Combo Updater installs Build 11D50b. (The first 10.7.3 Combo updater installed build 11D50.) Not sure there's any real difference however (other than perhaps the installer?) but posting as a FYI. If anyone knows what's changed or had better luck with the 'b' build vs the original Combo install, send a note. Thanks.
(I aways preferred using Combo updaters but haven't updated to Lion yet. Maybe after things settle down a bit, say 10.7.5 or so.)
