MacBook Air :: Runcore 64GB Firmware Flash?

Mar 31, 2010

I have a Runcore 64GB LIF SSD in my Air. Apparently it's still running 1571 version of firmware. I would like to upgrade that to the latest 1916. Couple of questions:

1. Which firmware executable do I use for this particular drive?

2. Is it safe to flash 1571 straight to 1916? I heard some users had problems if one doesn't flash to an interim version first

3. Is there a write up how to do this flash on Mac anywhere? I found one for Rev A but not 100% sure it's exactly the same as Rev B/C since controllers are different

OS X :: Runcore SSD Not Formatting?

Nov 5, 2009

I just got a new 128GB Runcore SSD for my MacBook Air today and I've been running into some problems with it. It came preformatted to FAT32 which wouldn't work to copy all the data over to and boot from, obviously. So, I tried opening Disk Utility to format it and it gets about halfway through before it just stops all progress and no progress is had after that.

After verifying the same case on my MacBook Air and my MacBook Pro, I decided to see if it would work via Terminal. So I typed in the command "diskutil eraseDisk HFS+ untitled disk3" with disk3 being the SSD. I've let it sit for a few minutes now and it is still trying to unmount the disk.

Any ideas as to how I can format this hard drive and go from misery to glee on my MacBook Air?


Ok, I've unplugged and replugged in the SSD and tried the terminal command again. This time it is getting further, but still not completing the task:

Formatting disk3s2 as Mac OS Extended with name untitled

MacBook Pro :: 64GB Kingston SSD - External HDD Or Surprise?

Aug 22, 2010

from work, I can select either a Kingston 64GB SSDNow drive or an external HDD with similar value. Currently, I use 7200rpm in two unibody MBPs and I have a pair or eMacs with their original drives. Here are my options:

1. SSD in 13" MBP with Windows running on Parallels. I worry that by allocating half of the storage for both OS, I wouldn't have enough space for anything in terms of working with files. Removing the optical drive is not an option here. Also, I need to switch off a few options in Windows, like the disc fragmentation and so on. What are they? Can TRIM support under Parallels be taken advantage of? I'm still not sure about using SSDs. I don't mind waiting for applications to launch or to boot up.

2. SSD in external HDD enclosure with USB, so I can boot from it on both MBPs. In this scenario, it would only run Snow Leopard. But wouldn't a USB2 port impose a bottleneck, almost defeating the point of using an SSD?....................

MacBook Air :: 64GB SSD Shows Up As 59.68GB In Snow Leopard?

Sep 1, 2009

I have a Rev A MBA with the 64GB SSD, and am just wondering why it shows the capacity as ~60GB under Snow Leopard, when I'd thought it was supposed to show the capacity as it is marketed as, i.e. as 64GB? I read somewhere that there is also some capacity taken up by partitioning, but doesn't 4GB taken up by partitioning seem like a lot? I just thought I should ask since I don't really understand... I found another thread but then it seemed like the person only lost 1GB due to partitioning, and that was on a 1TB drive, meaning they were loosing far less of the drive's capacity as a % than I seem to be. Finder shows the capacity of my SSD as 59.68GB, System Profiler as 60.02 GB (60,022,480,896 bytes), and Disk Utility as 60.02GB. Just to make it clear I understand all the base 10 vs. base 2 stuff, it's just that under base 10 in 10.6 I don't understand why my SSD doesn't show up as 64GB.

MacBook Pro :: SSD Firmware And OCZ Vertex 2

Sep 19, 2010

SSD bandwagon, and have a question. I bought a 2.5" Vertex 2 60GB, which seems to be doing very well in all the benchmarks. I know OSX has no TRIMM support yet, and there is a lot of rumbling about using the right firmware in order to increase the SSD's lifespan. I read I'll probably have to use Windows in order to update the firmware in OCZ SSD's. Can anyone tell me, how I can check the firmware version of the SSD using OSX ? Can it be done, or do you need Windows for this as well ?? I have no idea what firmware it runs, so there is no way to know if it needs updating.

MacBook Pro :: Installing EFI Firmware Update 1.7?

Jun 22, 2009

After the update, my MacBook Pro is extermely sluggish. Prior to the update, I was zipping along like most happy MacBook Pro owners. After the update, I constantly see the dreaded beach ball when doing almost anything with the laptop, Safari pages take longer to load, etc.

It's almost as if the udpate had the opposite effect and actually throttled down my WD 500GB HDD performance to a large degree.

Like I said, prior to the update all was good. I've been searching to see if there is a way to revert back to the previous firmware to validate that the update caused the problem but I haven't been successfull in finding anything yet.
