Wierdly enough theres no information on the macmini2,1 EFI updates on apples website: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1237.
There seems to be the possibility of putting the mini into Target mode and then installing Lion via another compatible Mac over FireWire. Removing /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist on the drive should let the mini boot Lion. http://www.xlr8yourm..._duo_swaps.html. I'm gonna stick around with the firmware-updtae-thingy, or do you think If I could really install Lion via Target mode I shouldn't consider the Firmware update? Are there any other advantages of having a newer EFI?
Ok. this is how it goes down:
1: Download http://www.mediafire...n3q/Archive.zip and extract
2: Copy the two files "EFIUpdaterApp.efi" and "LOCKED_MM11_0055_08B.fd" to "/System/Library/CoreServices/Firmware Updates"
3: dann im Terminal: "sudo bless -mount / -firmware /System/Library/CoreServices/Firmware\ Updates/EFIUpdaterApp.efi -payload /System/Library/CoreServices/Firmware\ Updates/LOCKED_MM11_0055_08B.fd -options "-x efi-apple-payload0-data" --verbose" The Last output has to be "Executing "/sbin/umount"
4: Shut down Mac
5: Hold the Power Button for about 4-5 seconds. A screen will appear and flash the new Firmware to macmini2,1
6: Lay back, enjoy
I downloaded MLPostFactor but when I try to run the .app i get an error saying I cant run this on my OS X Version. Any clue on how to bypass this?
