    Is there an easy way to revert from 10.5.3 to 10.5.2?
    Hopefully keeping everything so I don´t need to re-install every program, plugin and so. Is that possible?

    Well 10.5.3 works fine but I got some hardware that doesn´t play very nice with 10.5.3. So for now it seems that I need to revert to 10.5.2.

    It's easy if you've got a Time Machine backup. Just do it from the Leopard DVD. Make sure you backup everything that's been done since you installed .3 or it'll erase it.

    Any other way? I don´t have a Time Machine backup from 10.5.2.
    So the only way is to make a new 10.5.2 install and then install every program & plugin again?

    You can either live with 10.5.3 or perform an archive and install of anything prior to 10.5.3

    after i installed 10.5.3 on my 08 mac pro, i couldn't boot without a kernel panic.

    lucky me had a time machine drive in the system, so it only cost me 4-5 hours to revert back to my previous OS version.

    you might have to archive/install.

    funny that i've had to re-install or restore from backup Leopard 3 times on my mac pro, and my XP boot camp install has been rock-solid.

    I think my mac is the best PC i've ever had. And it's better than my mac Mac.
