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!

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?

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

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!!

 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.

Imac 4.1 20" 2006 bootRom-Im41.0055.B08 ,SMC-1.1F5 , 2ghz intel core duo, DRR2 2x 1GB ram, Mac OSX 10-5-8.

I'd like  to update it to imac 5.1 with iMac4,1 and iMac5,1 Firmware Tool Released taken from the forum but I cannot do it, the application won't start, does nothing, a popup windows appears ":Unexpectable finished working".

I've got a question if I need to change the processor to intel core 2 duo first and then try to install iMac4,1 and iMac5,1 Firmware Tool Released. Will it work then?
