Snow Leopard And BlackBerry Tethering

September 7th, 2009 2 comments

I have been told that the replacement Macintosh BlackBerry PPPD is no longer necessary for systems that have Snow Leopard installed.  In fact, it sounds like installing the patched pppd version can actually cause issues on Snow Leopard systems.

If you have Snow Leopard on your system, please do not install the patched version of PPPD.

I will keep the replacement package available for those like myself that are still running Leopard on their systems.  In addition, there is a version built for Tiger.

BlackBerry Tethering with 10.5.8

August 11th, 2009 Comments off

Just a quick post to validate that the latest Leopard update (10.5.8)  overwrites the changed pppd provided by my replacement package.  I’ve also verified that installing the replacement package on top of 10.5.8 works just fine.

I recently did a bit of fighting with the Macintosh pppd daemon to fix problems with Bluetooth tethering of my BlackBerry Bold.  Downloads, installation details and more information can be found in BlackBerry Bold PPPD Replacement.
