On magento v1.5.1.0 patch Supee 8788 fails at downloader/Maged/View.php

I downloaded a fresh install of Magento v1.5.1.0, copied the downloader file over and retried but still fails with the same error:

patching file downloader/Maged/View.php
Hunk #1 FAILED at 154.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file downloader/Maged/View.php.rej

To fix this:

Download the latest version of Magento (currently v1.9.3.0) and replace the downloader/Maged/View.php file with the one from the latest release.

Then remove this function (around line: 156):

   * Retrieve Session Form Key
   * @return string
  public function getFormKey()
      return $this->controller()->getFormKey();

Run the patch install again and the patch will be applied successfully.

  • This is a very nice way to solve these conflicts with Magento patches! And I can be applied not only in that case. Thank you for sharing. Commented Jan 25, 2018 at 15:55
