I was wonder if there were any tips on updating OSX. It looks like 10.11.5 was just released today.

I see in your signature you have Ubuntu. You could install the update then copy the kernel back into place after the update.

Personally I have another OS X HDD/Partition to replace the kernel and any kexts I may need and rebuild the prelinkedkernel after the update. For me this is the easiest way.

The kernel will need replace plus any kexts that have been modified for example AppleHDA. I am currently updating my test partition before my main and will let you know if it goes ok.

The way I did it was to backup current kernel to the desktop and remove it from System/Library/Kernels/ and start the Combo update from Apple.
As this was installing I had the Kernels folder open so I could see when the updated one was copied. As soon as it was copied I removed it and put the AMD one I made a backup of back in place.
From there I went to the Extensions and removed AppleTyMCEDriver.kext and replaced AppleHDA with my patched one then let the installer rebuild the caches ect.

You can download the Combo update from here if you feel confident enough to try,

When i has home internet i will update, but i will make this like every update. 1. Install 10.11.5 update 2. when it restart i will restart and 3. i will start from usb capitan install and will replace the kernel and 4. viola it will work.
