Hi Adrian! Sounds spot-on to me - thanks for posting this! There are a few minor typos, otherwise all is well. For completeness, I would suggest to place all files that are part of Alex' distribution (i.e. not only the science app and the app_info.xml-file, but also all the readmes, etc.) into the location you mention. That's largely academic, though, and has no impact on functionality...

i considered this when i wrote it, i think you are probably right as the docs should be with the optimised apps..

i'll go and edit it (edit done)

cheers for the input :-)

Thanks so much for the instructions! I wanted an optimized app but didn't know how to install it!

Don't know if you think it is worth noting in your instruction listing as a note. The "Mac error -5000" shown (usually twice) in the Messages page of BOINC Manager when using the G5 optimization, is a known incorrect message. Alex Kan is aware of this and it will be rectified when the next batch of updates is released for all of Mac versions.

The following link to Macintosh Q&A shows details as given by Alex:-
