    Tim, plistlib.readPlistFromString doesn’t responds due to a change in DS. I switched to biplist instead and it’s working well. Will post the new script on jumpt.wordpress.com soon.

      Ah, right. DeployStudio switched to binary plists a while ago. biplist would be one way, or we could also borrow the needed function(s) from FoundationPlist assuming we’re on OS X. Thanks for the update!

        Do you have an example of this fix implemented anywhere? I’ve tried using biplist to correct the issue and various other things, but can’t seem to figure out how to get it all working.

          wooster/biplist should work, as it claims to be API-compatible with plistlib. FoundationPlist by Greg Neagle is another choice if you’re running on OS X, which is included with Munki and AutoPkg – it’s also a drop-in replacement for plistlib.
