- iMac EFI Firmware Update 1.9 - iMac (Early 2011)

- MacBook Air EFI Firmware Update 2.4 - MacBook Air (Mid 2011)

Why? Also not possible btw, an operating system cannot break a Mac.. The firmware's that are released are meant to work on supported Mac's..


I didn't mean physically snapping the thing in two. Christ, some people take things far too seriously.

Got the update for my mid-2010 MBP.


Phew, I was getting worried you wouldn't get it there for a minute.

Why such hostility?

In your life, have you ever done something illegal/against the rule?

He's just messing with beta software, he's not selling drugs or anything like that!


Yes, I am using ML as we speak & obviously ain't a dev! I was being sarcastic, having a bit of fun. Relax.

I hope Mountain Lion breaks your Mac Mini.

Um, that picture is under NDA. Unless you are not in the Dev program and then you just posted you have illegal software on your Mac. *wags finger* :cool:

EDIT: I should have added the *sarcasm* tag to my post. I really don't give a flying freak what anyone does. More power to you, I actually think ML is going to be okay, it just won't run on my older MacBook.


I bet you were a hall monitor. :D

He's probably just jealous that somebody had the balls to download a torrent for the Developer Preview, install it and have it properly running. Not that he is missing out on much. The current incarnation of Mountain Lion is sluggish like hell and does not bring one single feature that's noteworthy - the toy apps don't count and Dungeon Keeper is a reason NOT to upgrade; Apple is moving in a direction that should not be supported.

Protip: no one cares.



Doesn't matter. You can't do that software update in 10.8. He may think he did but there's a known bug in the software update.

If he can prove to me that he did it that way I'd sure like to see the proof.
