Updating firmware on macbook pro

Clearly, Apple don't like people doing stuff like the dosdude hack as this "robs" them of sales!

Boot from the USB Flash Drive containing the modified OS installer created in step 8 above and select the 3.5” hard drive from your Mac Pro as the install destination.

When the installer finishes, replace the 3.5” drive into your Mac Pro (if moved to an external enclosure) and boot normally.

To navigate to it after installing XCode, simply go to the following path and launch the application: /Developer/Applications/Utilities Create a Mavericks (or Mountain Lion/Yosemite) bootable USB drive using the modified installer we’ve just made.

A good step-by-step account of this process for creating a Mavericks USB installer is outlined at at least the same version of the OS you just downloaded (Example: Mavericks 10.9.4) and then plug your Mac Pro’s hard drive into this computer externally (use Target Disk mode or put your Mac Pro hard drive in an external enclosure).

My name is Robert Bryant, and I am a computer tech in Central California just south of San Jose.

As a daily Mac Pro user, I wanted to provide the Low End Mac community with the necessary steps to take a base model 2006 Mac Pro 1,1 or 2007 2,1 (that can now be easily obtained for under 0) and show you how to make it as modern as any current Mac, while retaining all of the expansion that the older tower style Mac Pros provide.

Tiamo is the original modifier of the “boot.efi” file (more on that later) that allows you to run modern versions of OS X on the Mac Pro 1,1 and 2,1 which would otherwise be limited to OS X Lion 10.7.5.

Recently, I have been helping friends upgrade their Mac Pro 1,1 and 2,1 models with OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks (and more recently 10.9.4 and have also begun experimenting with 10.10 Yosemite with some success).

Note: You’ll know that you have succeeded when you see “DSMOS IS HERE”.

At that point, the Mac Pro will then boot it’s GUI.

Occasional dropouts when using the newer plugins in a loaded project, but i'm running 128 samples.
