OK, this post may have opened up a few doors for me. First of all starting at the very first post what is phoenix tools and where do I get them. I have searched Google but don't wanna download just any tool with the name. second, I downloaded the files provided in the first post and have been picking them apart but have very little knowledge in this field. My goal is to be able to pull a .scap from Apple.com and modify it to suit my needs. But the majority of the file is unreadable. What exactly are you guys doing by extracting it farther?

Is there any solution to process and use the apple efi updates .scap file to write a fresh dump directly to an efi chip if required?

Anyone know how to blank out a logic board serial number? When Apple refurbishes them, they erase the serial number, so the technician has to re enter the serial number for the computer it goes into. They use a special CD, and it can only be done once. How do they (Apple) erase it? I know that the SN is stored on the boot ROM chip that also holds the EFI.
