Mindstorms 2.0 patch for installing on Leopard and Snow Leopard

If you use the installer on the CD, the installation will appear to succeed, but you'll end up with no applications in the MINDSTORMS NXT folder. LEGO has a patch for this which works quite well. It works by copying the installation DVD to your computer and patching up the installer.

New NXT firmware - 1.29

I don't have any information about what this firmware 1.29 changes, and haven't yet tried it myself. Does anyone else have any information on this?

Update: The major benefit is that it frees up about 10K of flash.
