Grin  Yes, it was a disappointment after doing the CPU upgrade, that's for sure.

I wonder how Wurlitzer1 made out...

Have a great day.







Great news!!!

I'm more than happy to have helped you!

In fact I did this tutorial because I know how it feels when after spending a couple of hours updating the CPU of the iMac you face that the easiest step of the process (the EFI update) doesn't work. That's why I wanted to share this tutorial with all you guys.

so..enjoy your "Late" 2006 iMac  Wink!!


Hi I just tried it and it worked like magic!
Many thanks for your help!

My 4,1 to 5,1 experience
I got a 4,1 for USD 100 on the net.
It had a Xeon W3520 and 4 GB 1066 MHz memory.
Firmware upgrade from 4,1 to 5,1 was straightforward.
I upgraded to Xeon W3690 and 24 GB 1333 MHz memory. Some USD 50+50.
After these upgrades I upgraded Mac OS X from 10.10.5 to 10.13.6 (High Sierra).

I used Geekbench 4 to benchmark.

Geekbench 4, before upgrade:
Single-Core Score: 2470, Multi-Core Score: 8340

Geekbench 4, after upgrade:
Single-Core Score: 3189, Multi-Core Score: 15358

Improvements, if you like:
Single-Core Score: +29,1%
Multi-Core Score: +84,1%

Now I am looking for a Metal-capable graphics card so I can upgrade to Mojave or Catalina.

One problem
A problem I had with installing 10.13, High Sierra was that it first would not allow me to do the necessary firmware upgrade, before installation. I had an old Apple monitor and when I replaced it with a later Apple monitor the upgrade of the firmware and then also installation of 10.13 could be done.

Questions
I have seen much faster results than mine on Geekbench, e.g. 5000 (singel core) with MacPro5,1 with Intel Xeon E3-1230 v5 3408 MHz (4 cores).
Is that a "true" 5,1? What is the fastest processor I can use in my 4,1, upgraded to 5,1?
I would appreciate suggestions for a reasonably priced Metal-capable graphics card. Anyone?

Thank you MacEFIRom and everyone else for great achievements to get mac's to live longer! Smiley

Master Yoda. You are Master Yoda now.  Cool

IT WORKED! I have an Early 2006 iMac 5,1 now.

Thank You very much. Yes, I must have somehow mixed up the files. My bad.

You've just made me, and I'm sure many others, very happy.

Good on ya, Yoda  Grin



Hi Cuban,

I think in this iMac EFI world I'm more a padawan than a jedi!

First of all, please take a look to my response to Wurlitzer1 because I made other mistake with the script used in the second terminal session (it is not the correct one).

Then, regarding your problem...

  • Efi update 1.1: iMacFirmwareUpdate.dmg to -> iMacEFIiMac41.dmg -> It mounts "/Volumes/iMacUpdate"
  • Efi update 1.2: iMacFirmwareUpdate1.2.dmg to -> iMacEFIiMac51.dmg -> It mounts "/Volumes/iMac EFI Updater"

The problem you are having is related with iMacEFIiMac41.dmg. Are you sure that .dmg is Efi update 1.1? Can you double check it?

Hi again, and Thanks for the reply.   Lips sealed

Yes, I noticed that errant link, but had already downloaded both of those files anyway.

Everything is fine up until the following section of the first terminal session. The script seems to refer to a Volume named 'iMacUpdate' but the Volume I see on the Desktop is named 'iMac EFI Updater'. I don't know how to resolve this discrepancy, and I can only assume the errors found in the second (sudo) terminal session are because of this issue. The correct files aren't being extracted, so no further actions can complete. I feel it is sooooo close, but am at a loss as to how to proceed...

Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.  Cheesy

Thanks again!

Hi Cuban,

I'm SO sorry!

You are totally right, there was something wrong with my instructions. After checking it I have discovered  the Efi update 1.1 link was not the correct one.
I have corrected my original post, so please try to download Efi upadte 1.1 from the new link and try again the procedure!
