Apple released today the Mac OS X 10.5.7 Update recommended for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
The best thing is, if you have built your Hackintosh using Apple’s Mac Leopard OS X Retail DVD, then just like all Macintosh users, you can use Software Update to update from a previous version. Easy, don’t you think? If you haven’t, and used some kind of patched OS X versions, then you will most likely have to wait for a new version of your patch.

Download OS X 10.5.7 Using Software Update
Warning: Before updating to 10.5.7, backup your Extensions (you can also use the OSx86 Tools Utility).
Since I still have several applications left to update ( I haven’t used my hackintosh for a while), I deselected the Mac OS X Update 10.5.7 first just in case I encounter problems with the application updates. At least I would know the problem didn’t come from the 10.5.7 update.
After updating the applications, I did some tests and after everything remains to be perfectly fine, I then updated Mac OS X from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7.
After downloading and installing the OS X 10.5.7 update, reboot your PC. If it won’t boot up for the first time, reboot again or try typing -v -f at the boot prompt.
After it boots up, go to About this Mac on the Apple menu to check your new version. It should now be 10.5.7.
A Small Hitch
One problem came up though, I lost my network connection. But since I have backed up my Extensions, I just copied the IONetworkingFamily.kext from the 10.5.6 version. Paste the kext file to your Computer Name/System/Library/Extensions folder or use the OSx86 Tool Utility to install it.
Reboot, and you should get back your network connection.
