I downloaded it to my Mac. You have to execute the script on a Mac anyway.

I'm hoping there is someone out there that can help me or walk me through steps or just give me advice. I have a 2009 MacPro that was successfully updated to the 5.1 firmware ages ago (I think I did it in 2012 maybe earlier). I would like to put the computer up for sale. It has upgraded ram and CPU thanks to that firmware update. My question is what will happen if the new user is to update to Catalina OSX or an OSX newer than Mountain Lion... Is there anyone on this forum that wants to buy this great computer or can suggest a good place to sell it. Sellyourmac is offering $380 (I feel like that is low, not sure if that is a good price?) and allowed me to select the 'upgraded' CPU I have but they wipe it clean and reset it to factory condition and I fear it may not work when they do that (does that reset the efi firmware back also? I don't want the new user to install the latest OSX and then can't even boot the computer (I'm not sure that is what would happen - so maybe someone can help explain that part?). Is the 5.1 permanent despite upgrading to future OSX upgrades or does new firmware come with an upgrade potentially causing this computer to not work? If so, can you just run the same firmware update each time or is there other steps? Basically I did this a long long time ago. Haven't used the computer in ages (was for studio recording). I have a son now and am getting tight on money so wanted to let it go to someone who could get more use out of it! Any help WOULD BE greatly APPRECIATED!

Thanks Jack

These are the specs on computer:

Early 2009
3.33 Ghz 6-Core Intel Xeon
32GB RAM 1333 Mhz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB
Currently on 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion)

.... same problem here, and I edit the EFI updater file via the Hex Editor, but still get the 5530 error ... any help pls?

I just ran in to this issue trying to update two ultra-cheap MacPro1,1's I scored. I fumbled through the steps in this post http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,1094.msg38659.html#msg38659

For both MacPro1,1's, following the quoted steps linked above, I got it to work. Both machines now report themselves as MacPro2,1's.

I know about CD and LS also CHMOD. but for some reason it just refuses to work. Did you download the script to your MAC? I download to my PC which might be why it doesn't work. Download to a PC you loose the resource fork if there is any. Kind of like attributes.

I do think your right HAL I think it has to do with the path that the files are in. Maybe explain how you got it to work.

Familiarize yourself with unix commands and 'cd' to the patch where your script is at.

@Alex I see no line entry for Metal under Graphics/Displays. So your board is not showing as Metal compatible. macOS High Sierra was the last version that ran on non Metal graphics boards. Which Mojave needs. So maybe re-flash the board or get a pre-flashed board. Or stick with high sierra.

And I still can't get that script ./makerom.sh to run. get something like bad command /bin/bash no such file or directory and that is the 1st line of the script! I copied all files to a blank hard drive ran from there and still errors. I do think your right HAL I think it has to do with the path that the files are in. Maybe explain how you got it to work.

Hi everybody,

Maybe someone can help.  The app quits unexpectedly on me.  Could this be because I am trying to run it on Leopard (10.5.8 ) ?  Tried the obvious, reset SMC, PRAM and NVRAM.  I have a MP1188Z.005C.B08.0707021221, which is in the patch files, do not know why it crashes...

Regards,
Robert

My Sapphire 7970 flashed with a 7950 I can't even get to High Sierra. Get boot screen progress bar goes about halfway then screen goes black. But the same board works with Sierra. I think I need to reflash it but maybe with a different EFI BIOS file.
