    hello all, just joined the community here, long time holding and believing in the project.
    I was trying to find a tutorial of updating my wallet on MAC OSX and could not find a step by step.
    Should i : backup wallet.dat and priv key and then remove the old application and install the new dmg, move the wallet.dat to the folder and import the priv key? I am kind of lost so any guidance will be appreciated. thanks!

    Sounds good! But you won't need to import the private key if you replace the wallet.dat file after reinstall. Let us know how you go. Be sure to back up both your wallet.dat and private key!

    hey mate, sorry I was away, just saw your message. this is what I did...

    1-backed up the current wallet.dat and private key, just in case.
    2-removed the old wallet, even deleted the folder as well.
    3-clean install of the new wallet.
    4-move the backed up wallet.dat to replace the new wallet.dat
    5-then start the wallet and wait to re-sync.

    worked well,
    cheers
