I am looking for what everyone here deems the best Onyx "like" utility for repairing permissions, running scripts, overall system maintenance... I've looked in the App Store to no avail. Thanks!

really? the best onyx-like app is...(drumroll)...onyx.
there's a beta for Lion (try macupdate.com).

go for it.

Why look for a similar utility if you can just use it?

I was simply wondering if the "experts" here thought something was better than Onyx... That's all. No harm, no foul...

Does anyone like Cocktail better?

they're both great apps.
i've used onyx for so long, it seems like it should be part of the OS.

but, whatever gets the job done...

Not actually sure whether its the same sort of application (because i removed onyx when i saw it wasn't working and after appfresh finished), but deeper gives you alot of options and its still working now that i upgraded to lion.

no problem here, but only ran it once (and modded a few things with it).

Beta 2 is silky smooth on my MBP 2011, wish I could say the same about Lion...

You'd think these devs would publish an updated version. Sure they are doing this on their own time, but it's not like Lion was just released to the devs. They've had months to nail something out.

All people I know have always warned me about tools like Onyx. I for myself am staying far far away of those, my Mac is fine without it.

It does an awesome job at cleaning out crap in an automated manner.

The dude writing it just takes his time with OS releases. I remember getting it for SL months after it's release.

really? ALL of them?? :roll eyes:

have used onyx for YEARS, without problem. it's a great tool, i use it monthly.
also good for customizing some things on your mac.

whatever works (or, i guess, "doesn't).
