3rd firmware update for the MacBook

Apple

apple software updateI’ve finally capitolated and i’ve launched myself (maybe too much light-hearted) in the third firmware upgrade for my MacBook and into the less significant X11 update released two days ago and which only esterday, opening my RSS aggregator, i’ve become aware of.

I have to admit that the contestual release of a new Firmware Restoration CD (now at the 1.2 release) had me worried a bit.

So i’ve begun to read comments and reports on the update itself and found out that a big part of the rumors were only on the topic of Apple releasing the cd image as a DMG file instead of an ISO one.

Does it is really a problem ? No.

Sure, if one had an ISO file he could burn the cd-image from any operating system. But why Apple should have thinked to non-apple users ? If something goes wrong it’s likely to happen that an Apple user would take it to and Apple techical service.

If one’s is worried about the eventual malfuncioning update he can first make a CD out of the DMG file, print the restore procedure and then go ahead updating the firmware.

For what is worth i can assure everything has gone smoothly and it seems that the machine has become a little quiter than it was (which wasn’t much, anyway ..)
