    Unless it broke something that is mission critical for work, what is the point of trying to roll back. You can expect that most developers will have fixes soon for any applications that were adversely affected.

    You have to reinstall with Archive & Install or Erase & Install from the DVD.

    Why do you want to do this?

    I'm waiting until they figure out a fix for jailbroken iPhones... are there any updates that really make it worthwhile or just the usual fixes?

    As long as you're sure you don't need anything there, yeah go ahead and delete it.


    I have had no problems with 10.5.6 myself. (Mac Pro)

    Do you have the latest firmware for your model? I read some people report fixing problems with 10.5.6 by installing the latest firmware.
