All good on my G4. Even though I was little thrown off when I saw it being described as Universal.

When I installed it via Software Update it indicated that a PPC version was being installed.

Strange... It seemed to install fine, asked to reboot as usual, but when it was rebooting it got stuck on a blue screen with that little wheel spinning around. After 10 mins I just turned the mini off and on again, and now everything is fine.

I don't know what's going on with some of these updates, but the restarts are getting mad long. 10.4.8 and Security Update 2006-007 took a really long time. This one was average for me.

After mine had downloaded and installed. It went to restart but got stuck with the desktop picture. Everything else was gone, menu bar, icons, etc. But it was frozen. I wasn't running anything else during the process. So I tried to turn off the Mini by pressing the button. That did absolutely nothing. So after I went to the store and came back, it was still stuck. So I hated to do it, but I just pulled the power. Now everything is running fine and the update is in there.

Booting up did not take that much longer than normal, but this morning I found my Finder stalled, did not show my external drives anymore, so had to restart them.

I wonder what could be the hold up. Mine is working after I unplugged mine. I hate to do it that way, but it was what had to be done.

Did it go back to normal afterwards?
