Downloaded the patch earlier today, played a game or two, then logged off.
Come back and now I can't open the launcher.

Clicking the shortcut brings up the small League of Legends logo for a second or two, and then it disappears and nothing happens.

What do?

1) Delete the folder: C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_launcher
Re-open LoL. During this time the badge will show as it redownloads the files. Please do not click the badge until it either disappears of LoL opens.

This worked for me.

Go to applications folder. Right click on League of Legends Click "Show Package Contents." Go to "Contents." Go to "LOL." Go to "RADS." Go to "System." "User Kernel" file should not exist and therefore missing. Open .dmg file you used to download LoL just open Right click on League of Legends Right click to show package content, and follow the same route. Under "Systems" will be "User Kernel." Copy and paste "User Kernel" to the "Systems" folder in your installed League of Legends. PLAY!
