    Is there any way to remove an update? A "roll-back" of any sort? I updated my system the other day with the new airport 004 update, and it's rendered my wireless card virtually useless. I've tried repairing permissions and all that, but it's still not working.

    Is the only way to get the update off (or back to the old 002 update) to reformat? :confused:

    Unfortunately, there's no such beast as a rollback in OS X.
    The rollback method that Apple has provided is to reinstall the OS. :(

    You could try reapplying the update before going to the hassle of reinstalling the OS.

    (Again) Unfortuantely, 90% of techs one might get on the phone will tell you..

    Reinstall the OS.

    Far too often, that's one of their troubleshooting steps.
