Boompje's new fix works for this version too. Just curious, what's the actual difference between Boompje's and this one?

let's see:
-the wrapper is completely remade (basically the engine that lets LoL work on mac)
-fixes to several bugs and glitches are already included (so that you don't need to post for solutions if, for example, your loading screen freezes on black. it just won't happen)
-installer modified so that it creates its own path (no overlapping with riot client, allows easy patching from us)
-new icon 'cause people were asking how to tell the difference
-"temporary fix" changed with "permanent fix" (edited version of the .exe instead of the old .exe)
-something else i can't completely remember about the .DLLs and the wrapper translating to winXP instead of win95.
-adobe AIR auto-updater.

mainly, it was made so that we could include the bugfixes in the installation, and to create a "standard" base for us. clients were starting to become more and more customized, and it was almost impossible to help someone without knowing what he did to his client. the core mechanic is the same, therefore most fixes are perfectly compatible.

Someone mind throwing a url up here for Boompje's fix? There's at least a half dozen links at different locations for torrents and I'm a bit skeptical.

That and this guy says apparently there's a new fix that works:

Used to have the LoL mac client, had to repair it and used this plus the new shyvanna fix, but now what happens is that after I hit play on the launcher, nothing happens, any idea on how to fix this/what could be wrong?

just go to the site and don't trust random links :P

www.boompje.net

(note: fix works for riot's and phynn's distributions too, but you'll need to follow the manual instructions included. no easy drag&drop)

not indipendently. your best bet is downloading directly our most updated client on www.boompje.net. otherwise, you'll need to download this fix, then another fix, then several other slight improvement, then come back for bugfixes, and still have less performance.
why complicating your life? it's a mac. it's easy.
