Is there an updated version of Applejack for OS Mountain Lion? Sourceforge.net only lists a 2009 copy, and my iMac won't run about 3 of the important routines.

Applejack was last updated in July 2010. http://applejack.sourceforge.net/man.html I would only run it on supported operating systems, of which Leopard is the last.

What important routines do you think are necessary? There are probably alternatives.

If I manually run Disk Utility and Repair Permissions, one item comes as being broken and not reparable.

I wonder about that. In general the Permissions routine shows up far less stuff that OS 10.5 did.

What permission shows as being unrepairable?

Onyx & Maintenance, both free from Titanium software, are good alternatives that use the GUI rather than the command line. Titanium downloads (http://www.titanium.free.fr/download.php?sid=4697af993476b58404783e5dd362a10d)

This is the item that concerns me:


Warning: SUID file “System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent” has been modified and will not be repaired.

Wouldn't worry about it. I've seen that show up at least, and this is probably WAAAY less than reality, 100 times. The SUID & ACL difference messages are somewhat normal and not a cause for concern...

Apple support document that concerns this message - http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1448

If you are attempting to, but failing to, connect to the Mac in question from another Mac via Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) then you might investigate a bit further but I doubt this would even be related.

Here's a bit of recent history that might explain:
a) two weeks ago downloaded OS Mountiain Lion from the AP Store
b) certain functions wouldn't operate (software update, and AP link i dock)
c)spent 4 phone calls and 4 hours talking to Apple Care support.
This escalated to where an software engineer at Apple gave me his direct phone number.
d)part of the resolution was to invoke Remote Manager so he could look at my Desktop. It didn't work.
e) 8 days after the problem arose, they had a solution. I had to toss 2 files in the Plist (in Library), and 2 Certificates, also in the Library. It wasn't fun, but it worked.

The Mavericks release is severely incompatible with the current release of Applejack (1.6). Does anyone here know if Applejack will be updated :) or has been abandoned? :(

With the Intel-CPU Macs, Applejack doesn't work. The OS (10.8 or 10.9) have internal fixes that do away with the need for Applejack.

Run Disc Utility (free with the OS) and Disk Warrior every few months and you will fly like a bird. Applejack had something to offer in its day, but Macs have progressed since then.

What a crock of horse-poo.
AppleJack worked just fine with Intel CPU's, right up to and including SnowLeopard 10.6.8, I still use it regularly on my 2009 mini running SL.
Above 10.6.8 it starts to get flakey.
