In Topic: Anyone got the old SMC MBPro firmware? Also, any success returning re: whine?

I've been workign on EXACTLY this issue. I have NOT upgraded my MBP because of exactly the issue you are talking about. Its mostly fine, a bit too hot, but i dont want my fans on all the time.

So im trying to extract the original SMC firmware from the boot rom before I go upgrading it with the new one. the aptly named "hfsplus.ef" thread has a bunch of my exploits on it, and sort of the state of the state with respect to efi firmware extraction, disassembly and reflashing.

I will let you know as I progress, any ideas you might have would certainly help.

its trivial to get to the EFI shell with reFit (http://refit.sf.net) I still can't get their EFIAppLoader.efi to write the current firmware out from there. I'm thinking its going to be easier to extract the bin files. I decided to work on something else for the weekend (convertmake) I'll come back to this in a week or so when i feel up to unpacking PE binaries.

Glad to help anyone else who wants to try tho :)
