If I already have Mountain lion, but can't access it, can I upgrade to Mavericks with only Unibeast? Or do I need to be booted into Mountain Lion and use the Mavericks app store app to upgrade?

P.S. And if I upgrade do I get to keep all my files and apps?

Assuming you have a USB drive that was set up with Unibeast + Mavericks, just boot that USB drive and install Mavericks on top of your Mountain Lion drive without reformatting. This will upgrade the existing ML installation to Mavericks without deleting existing files.

Of course, you do have a backup anyway, right? RIGHT? :)

I was unable to upgrade from the installer.
I used unibeast, created my USB installer, booted to that and it upgraded my 10.8.5 system in 20 minutes :)
Once booted I used multibeast.
Now to clone this test install back to my primary boot drive ;)
