I've never been told by any literature anywhere to type the sync command before typing reboot. I have always just ran fsck -y until it came up clean then typed reboot. What does the sync command do anyhow?Originally posted by sparkleytone
hold down cmd+s on bootup to get into singleuser mode. once you are in single user mode run "fsck -y" until it finds no errors. then type "sync;sync;sync;reboot"
