Airport Utility 5.6.1 on MacOSX 10.8.3

How to No Comments »

This is a quick remember on how to upwrap a package and install it manually: Airport Utility-5.6.1 on MacOSX-10.8.3

I never remember the vanity cat-versions of OSX, but my 10.8.3 is not permitted to install AU-5.6.1. There’s something in the AU-5.6.1 package that refuses (or has forgotten to specifically allow) 10.8.3 has a host OS. My needs involved WEP configurability: I had to get an old laptop onto my Wifi to get it online without a Mir-Cable across the floor.

unfortunately, AU-5.6.1 doesn’t allow a guest network, whereas the frailty of WEP causes me to prefer a simple laptopinternet pipe withot access to the other resources on my LAN. I went elsewhere with this task, but I wanted ot keep some notes.

  1. download from http://supportdownload.apple.com/download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/Mac_OS_X/downloads/041-0261.20120611.Vbgt6/AirPortUtility5.6.1.dmg
  2. mkdir -p ~/Desktop/apu561
  3. cd ~/Desktop/apu561
  4. xar -x -f /Volumes/AirPortUtility/AirPortUtility.pkg Payload
  5. tar xzf AirPortUtility.pkg/Payload
  6. sudo mv Applications/Utilities/AirPort Utility.app /Applications/Utilities/AirPort Utility-5.6.1.app
