I'm looking to install geth 1.4.6 that syncs much faster than 1.4.5. Unfortunately doing brew upgrade ethereum only updates geth to version 1.4.5.

How can I get geth 1.4.6 for Mac OS X?

Geth 1.4.7 (the release fixing homebrew) should be available now :)


geth is a Go program with one unique file and does not have any dependency. You could download the file here:


Simply replace the one in the /usr/local/bin or use it where it is.

  • Which of the executables should be used on Mac OS X?

  • The darwin amd64 version. Btw, we're going to push out a tiny windows console color fix release in a few days, which also fixes the homebrew issue (build server failure) that prevented the osx distribution. Commented Jun 13, 2016 at 10:40
  • like Peter said, the darwin amd64. On Unix, use 'uname -a' to know your os
