If you've restored the stock .htaccess and .htaccess.sample files then check that you've applied all previous security patches--they're a pre-requisite.
my magento files are pretty fresh...just downloaded and installed with the last 5-6 days...
If you're getting the 207 block error for .htaccess I've got something for you:
So it looks like the .htaccess file from the stock install of some versions (184.108.40.206 EE I can confirm the hard way) has a trailing empty line at the end. However the patch will not run with that there. Remove the trailing empty line and you may be good to go. We have a custom .htaccess file and even after I'd copied either the .htaccess.sample or the .htaccess file out of original install it was still causing an error till I tried that.

Probably the patch file shouldn't have the + on the line immediately after #FileETag none for .htaccess unless some versions have a different .htaccess file then is in their .htaccess.sample. Maybe they'll release a patch to the patch so others don't have ongoing headaches...
This is ridiculous. I'm no programmer, and barely manage to get patches installed correctly ...and they release a patch that obviously wasn't tested very well. Why wont this successfully patch all the files it *does* find instead of crapping out?
My error message is:
For all of those having issues here are a few tips that finally got mine to work.
Do all of these on a test box first.
1.) .HTACESS...This one is a pain. You need to back up your current htaccess file somewhere. Grab both the vanilla .htaccess and htaccess.sample file from a free download of your exact magento version. Copy those over and run the patch. The patch should at LEAST clear that file now.
Diff this new file with your old htacess file, and merge the new fixes.
2.) Any issues with any other failures. Make sure you have applied every single other patch successfully. My issue was that two older patches were not applied to our test server and the new 6788 wouldn't work. After patching the older patches, the 6788 worked like a charm.
For me, the ".htaccess.sample" file did not exist. This has never been an issue during patching until today. Once I put the ".htaccess.sample" file in the root magento directory, the patch applied successfully.
Edit: This enabled me to execute the patch sucessfully, but after the patch I have some major issues with my site. I haven't had time to fix the issue yet. I will reply when I find a resolution.
I have had the same problem. Because I have installed the new patch allready I had to get the magento backup back. After i copied the backup into my magento folder I firstly patched magento with all the patches till update 6788 and then I executed the 6788 patch and it worked like a charm.
Same here, I already uploaded a fresh .htaccess but now the patch is stuck with the following files:
patching file app/design/frontend/default/iphone/layout/customer.xml

They have no different date than the other files in that directory....
same issue any solution?
