Hi Patrick,

I don't know what a cyclic loop is, but for upgrading a symlink 
installation you only need the source package, not the dummy.

You need to change the typo3_src symlink in order to point to the newer 
source directory. Then you need to compare the database with the install 


P.S. Is your webserver also running OS X?
