EFIver.py v1.2 released

A new update of efiver.py is now available from my Github repository.

Version 1.1 has a fix for an index error for .scap files, and will now correctly show the version info of all of the extracted files.

Version 1.2 comes with a new EFI ROM version check, and highlights the data for your Mac. Look here:

New Handy Script Called efiver.py

Two days ago I mentioned efiver.py and today I like to share it with you. Running efiver.py is simple a matter of entering: ./efiver.py

Update: A new version of efiver.py (v1.2) is now available. See also EFIver.py v1.2 released.

Note the initial output of the script:

Correct. That is the output of installSeed.py and efiver.py relies on it, for the actual download of, and expansion of FirmwareUpdate.pkg. In short. Make sure to download it as well. In case you haven’t already.

Anyway. Here is the output that matters:

Note: There are three different boardID’s for the iMac17,1 but only one is shown since all EFI ROM version are the same.

No more looking up of board/model ID’s. It’s all there. And it is very easy to use.

Note that this is only the initial release, and I hope that you like it.

Hey. We could also add a new script to extract the firmware mask from the payloads. What do you think?

p.s. The BIOS date is here: 1708080129

New Handy Script Called smcver.py

I converted an old bash script to Python and this new scripts does everything on it’s own. You only need to launch the script and that’s about it. What does it? Who needs it? Well. That is pretty simple, when you look at the output of smcver.py:

With my new script, everyone can check the latest Apple’s SMC version info. You don’t need anyone. No more waiting. Not for anyone. Nobody controls you. You are in control. Totally.

Note: smcver.py calls installSeed.py v3.3+ for the actual download and expanding of FirmwareUpdate.pkg This new update of instalSeed.py and smcver.py will be shared a.s.a.p.

Another script (efiver.py) to check the latest EFI ROM version info will also be shared soon. With the same kind of informative (board-id/model-id) output.

installSeed.py v3.2 released…

Yesterday I blogged about installSeed.py v3.0 and today I want to discuss the new options of installSeed.py v3.2 (after a silent update to v3.1).

Note the warning, and that fact that the text of the confirmation changed. No problem. You might need a reinstallation of the current version of macOS. Anyway. Let’s do that again, but this time on a Mac with the latest GM candidate installed on it:

./installSeed.py -a update -t /

New warning text, and this time the text for the confirmation also includes the word: “absolutely”. That should help prevent errors. So I hope.

Let’s now use the -f argument to download a single package. Here we download the FirmwareUpdate.pkg from the latest update:

./installSeed.py -a update -f FirmwareUpdate.pkg -t /

Support for -a update is not implemented in v3.2

Note the: “Support for -a update is not implemented in v3.2” there. As in. This version currently only downloads the files. It won’t install anything. This is something that I like to work on for a next update.

installSeed.py v3.0 released…

You may still be using an old version of installSeed.py but a new version is now available from my Github Repository. I don’t have a lot of time right now, so let’s start with the output of the script:

Note the much improved output. Which is way more informative. Now you know what you’re about to download.

It now also asks you if you want to continue. Before it adds the URLs to the download queue. As in multithreaded downloads. To speeds things up.

I also added (the initial) support for seed updates and single package downloads. Like for example FirmwareUpdate.pkg – though this feature will only be available in a next update!

Edit: The text: “Select a target volume for the boot file” should have been: “Select a target volume” and will be corrected in a next update!
