MacBook :: Apple Firmware Updates Integrated With OS Install?

Sep 6, 2009

I have a late 2008 aluminium macbook, recently "clean" installed snow leopard, everything cool apart from the recurring issue with adobe acrobat pro 9 64bit pdf printer driver, anyway. How do I know whether or not I have the apple firmware updates from this site [URL]. Is there any way of checking or have they just be integrated with the snow leopard install. Also is it still ok the drive makes a noise when you either turn the macbook on and / or when the macbook comes out of sleep. Apple fixed this with a firmware update for the imac and etc, has there been one for the Macbook?

MacBook :: EFI And SMC Firmware Updates - Boot ROM Version Differs

Jan 20, 2010

I have a late 2008 alumunium Macbook 2.4GHz, upgraded to 4GB RAM, running Snow Leopard 10.6.2. Due to a kernel panic earlier today I went through the websites shown in this thread: [URL]. As I was doing some of the procedures, I came across a website about EFI and SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs shown below: [URL].

According to that website the Boot ROM Version on my late 2008 Aluminium Macbook, should be
Instead it is

If I understand correctly, the support website probably has a typo, because my Macbook is coded Macbook 5,1 and not 5,2. Also on this website: [URL] it says MacBook5,1 will update to MB51.007D.003, which is still not the number I have in the System Profiler. Of course the above website has Mac OS X 10.5.7 as a requirement, so I'm not sure if the number changes in Snow Leopard. I just want to know if the Boot ROM Version in my System Profiler is ok, or if something is wrong.

MacBook Pro :: SMC Firmware Updates For Intel-based Macs?

May 27, 2012

my macbook pro (late 2011) is powering down without warning. I'll be writing an email and w/o warning, it's off. I'm unable to turn it back on with the power button unless i hold it down for a slow count to 10. Fyi - machine is 100% charged when this  happens. Two days ago, I did SMC and PRC resets with Apple Care. I needed to do both of these again yesterday on my own.

Applications :: Software Updates Wants To Install Updates For Application.

Aug 21, 2010

So a while back I had final cut pro installed, and eventually deleted cause I no longer needed it. I used AppCleaner when removing to try and make sure I got it all.

Well every time I do a software update it wants to install "Pro Applications Update" and "Prokit Updates" Which are updates for final cut pro and its related apps.

Any idea how I can stop it from wanting me to install these updates for something I no longer have?

MacBook :: Can Apple Store Update Firmware

May 30, 2010

I have a macbook 2.4 alu (Late 2008) and Installed linux as soon as I got it.(I just like the cases). Anyway I know that you need to use apple update in osx to update the firmware. I can't dual boot because my HD is MBR. I thought of 2 ways.

A. Install OSX onto a usb device (Cost 30-40 bucks for usb)
B. Take to apple store, Maybe they can do it.

I can't dual boot because my HD is MBR. I heard the new firmware updates stop a lot of issues.

I tried to download the lastes version of open firmware, but it is incompatible with the version of my computer. Don't tell me to use a disk I got with my computer, that would be for a Macbook Pro, not a Macbook, which is what I have. Please tell me if you can find a link to a firmware password program for Mac OSX 10.6.8, or if you have another way of installing a firmware password.

MacBook Pro :: Downloading Firmware Update From Apple Suddenly Makes Freeze?

Apr 21, 2012

I recently downloaded a firmware update from Apple both as a stand-alone software and using software update but everytime I restart, my computer makes one loud beeping sound and tries to boot three or four times unsuccessfully and maybe on the fifth or fourth, it finally comes on. When I go through software update after this, it still shows the same firmware and same version of it as an update I haven't downloaded. And another thing it freezes a lot since I downloaded this firmware update. This is how it shows on software update; Macbook Pro EFI Firmware Update version 2.7 size: 4.1 MB.

MacBook Pro :: Install Firmware Update Prior To Or After Clean Installing Os X Lion?

Jul 5, 2012

Just bought a new SSD I plan to swap into my MacBook pro (mid 2010 6.2). I plan on clean installing osx Lion and thought I would try to make the installation go as smoothly as possible by updatingthe firmware, if needed, on both the new drive and the MacBook pro.

-Model: MacBook Pro 6,2 (mid 2010) - 15" i5 2.4ghz

-Current Boot ROM: MBP61.0057.B0C

I'm wondering if I need to wait until os x Lion is installed before I install this update? Perhaps it will automatically via "software update" after Lion is installed. It looks like the fix is pertains to osx Lion functionality, so maybe it would've already been downloaded via software update if Lion was installed as opposed to snow leopard which is what I have currently.The article says " If you are unsure whether your computer needs a particular update, simply download and open the update installer. The installer will alert you if the firmware update is already installed or not needed." Which update installer are they referring to and where can I get it? I thought it'd be better to update the firmware prior to installing the os, but maybe that's just an old habit I picked upnwhile using windows.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Install Software Updates

Apr 26, 2012

I keep getting a message saying "Software Update can't connect to the update server.  Make sure you're connected to the Internet, and then try again."  I'm connected to the Internet, so that's not the issue.  I've tried rebooting, and using Disk Utility to repair permissions.   I've also tried waiting and trying again later. This is the third day in a row I've gotten this message.

MacBook Pro :: 3,1 OS X 10.6.8 Won't Install New Software Updates

Software update 4.0.6 has found Safari 5.1.7, iTunes 10.6.1, Java for Mac OX X 10.6 Update 8, iLife Support 9.0.4, and Remote Desktop Client update 3.5.3.

Have tried to download & install as a group and individually.  Have downloaded Safari and Java to the hard drive and tried to install them. Also I've purchased Lion and tried twice to download and install but it reports an error at 4.1 GB and aborts, driving my downloads into pay-per-extra MB on my cable service. 

Have also tried safe boot and disconnected  (home) network.

Mac Mini :: Any EFI Or SMC Firmware Updates For The "Mid 2007"?

May 13, 2012

Are there any EFI or SMC firmware updates for the "Mid 2007" Mac Mini? It's certainly possible that there were never any updates, but it seems unlikely that they had to update either the EFI, SMC, or both for most Mac models before and after this one. ...unless they just didn't care – it was the Mac Mini after all. 

My Mac Mini is having some issues that seem to have been addressed on other models via firmware updates in the past (i.e. loss of responsiveness when connected to a Mac that is using FireWire disk mode, some other performance problems that I haven't yet been able to pin down using normal methods).


P.S. If anyone from Apple ever sees this (unlikely), please consider adding MacMini2,1 to the list (even if there are no updates) so that we know the listing was not just omitted in error. It would also be nice (if it doesn't already exist) if there was a page listing the effective version numbers for all models (not just update numbers).

MacBook :: Can't Install Essential Updates On Reinstalled Os X Leopard

May 1, 2012

I have a 2008 5th generation black macbook. It's a good 4 years old, so I figured I'd wipe my computer all together and reinstall os x. Once I did, everything is working fine until I do the software updates. Safari even looks like it's from 2008 lol. The issue is, it downloads the updates fine, but once it restarts and begins the actual install, it gets to the point where it's "Configuring update" and completely stops in it's tracks. I've tried letting it do its thing and walked away, because maybe it would actually take a while but no, the blue progress bar is in the same exact point. So I'm stuck with leopard 10.5.2

Hardware :: Apple Updates White MacBook With Faster Processor And Memory

May 27, 2009

Apple alongside its 2009 Back-to-School promotion on Wednesday also updated its entry-level white MacBook with a faster Intel processor, memory architecture and more hard disk space.

The update was announced quietly on the company's online store. For the same $999 Apple charged for the previous iteration of the white polycarbonate model, users get a 2.13GHz processor (up from 2.0GHz), a 160GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm (up from 120GB), and 2GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM (up from 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM).The update is the second this year to the Cupertino-based company's entry-level notebook offering, the first of which arrived on January 21st when model was updated with NVIDIA's 9400M graphics architecture.

That update also saw the notebook gain the same 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 1,066MHz front-side bus employed by the mid-range aluminum unibody MacBook, as well as a doubling of its memory to 2GB. The new white MacBook is eligible for Apple's just-announced Back-to-School promo, which offers a $229 online rebate good for a free 8GB iPod touch to qualifying education individuals who purchase a qualifying Mac and the iPod on the same receipt before September 8th.
