Apple updates Mac Pro firmware, Tiger Airport drivers

updated 11:25 pm EDT, Thu March 27, 2008

Mac Pro Tiger Airport

Apple today unveiled two updates, one for its Airport drivers under Mac OS X 10.4.x Tiger, and a firmware update for the Mac Pro (Early 2008), bringing the firmware to version 1.3. The AirPort Extreme Update 2008-001 for Tiger is recommended for all users with Intel-based Macs equipped with Tiger, and is said to enhance the reliability of AirPort connections. The update is 1.3MB, and is available from Software Update, as well as Apple's support page.

Details are sparse for the Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.3, simply stating that it resolves several stability issues and updates the BootROM version to MP31.006C.B05. Firmware updates require uninterrupted installation, so users are urged to pay special attention to the installation instructions.

    about time!

    I sure hope it fixes the USB port issues which have plagued these Mac Pros.

    what usb issues?

    Can you elaborate?

    The only problem I've had so far is the wake from sleep issue. But ever since I've started putting it to sleep by hitting "option-command-eject" on the keyboard simultaneously even that has gone away.
