installSeed.py v3.8 released…

Here is a new update of installSeed.py (v3.8) that you need for EFIver.py v2.2+

Change log for version 3.8

– fall back to en_US if selectLanguage fails.
– run pkgutil without sudo.
– add the regular update CatalogURL.
– read SystemVersion.plist from target volume.
– read seed enrollment plist from target volume.
– renamed targetPath to sourcePath.

How To Update

1.) Remove the current version of installSeed.py
2.) Run efiver.py.

That’s all you need to do.

EFIver.py v2.2 released

The last time that I blogged about EFIver.py was a week ago, for version 1.5, and today I like to share EFIver.py v2.2 with you. Let’s start with the output. As usual.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The highlighted board-id (Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94) is the apparent new iMac Pro. One with a 8-core/16 threads and Intel W-2140B processor. And for people wondering about its performance. Well. Take a look at this OpenCL score. This SKU runs at a lower (500 MHz) base frequency than the W-2145. Which runs at a base frequency of 3.7GHz. The 10 core/20 thread SKU is the W-2150B with a base frequency of 3GHz. With a 300MHz lower base frequency than the W-2155.

There are also two (1, 2) CPU Geekbench results with an early SKU (showing Intel 0000%) with a matching CPUID of the one that I found, back in August, in the leaked firmware of the iMac Pro. These are running 1300MHz slower than the W-2145 but note that this may be in fact be the 18 core SKU. Thing is. Apple is using a core/thread limiter. In short. You should take the results with a grain of salt.

Another new one, at the bottom of the list, is the Mac-F221DCC8/MacPro5,1 which comes with the High Sierra installer app.

There are also a total of five board-id’s with an Apple model set to “Unknown”. I did this because we don’t officially know any of their real model names. You may count only four of them, but there’s also this one:

Mac-CF21D135A7D34AA6 |        Unknown |AAPLX589.88Z.0161.B00.1705100046

Which I left out intentionally. I have some ideas about the following board-id’s:

Mac-1BDAB09B689867E2 -> MacBookPro13,n
Mac-F305150B0C7DEEEF -> MacBook8,n
Mac-D1FF70AF6D8C849A -> MacBookPro11,n

But that’s educated guesswork only. Nothing official. Anyway. Here’s the change log. Per revision. From v1.5 up to v2.2

Changelog for v1.5:

– check for installSeed.py and download it when missing.
– code refactored (no more code duplication).
– the output of the scrit is now a lot quicker.
– now reads the supported board-id’s from the firmware payload files.
– changed version number to v1.5

Changelog for v1.6:

– support for older version of efiupdater added.

Changelog for v1.7:

– now using the right patch for support of older versions of efiupdater.

Changelog for v1.8:

– whitespace changes.
– now checking both UUID’s (for old and new hardware models).

Changelog for v1.9:

– read EFI version from IODeviceTree:/rom.

Changelog for v2.0:

– check for Mac-F221DCC8/MacPro5,1 Apple UUID added.
– made some preparation for the next major release.
– shebang line changed.

Changelog for v2.1:
– now also checks the firmware directory of the installer.
– use filename instead of myBoardID (for MacPro5,1).
– removed spaces in one of the Apple UUID’s (done to verify the UUID).

Changelog for v2.2:
– removed a spurious semicolon.
– convert board-id to string and remove the trailing null byte.

EFIver.py v1.5 released

Wait what? Another update? Yes indeed. But listen. The previous versions of EFIver.py where nothing more than a rewrite of a bash script, but the next latest update of EFIver.py (version 1.5) is an important update. It’s not only a rewrite of the first three versions of EFIver.py, but now it also reads the supported board-id’s from the actual firmware files. It will now also download installSeed.py for you (for people who haven’t already). Now take a look at the output:

> WARNING: Your EFI ROM IM183.88Z.0058.B00.1705091711 is not up-to-date!! <
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

You may not spot the extra data right away, but this list is not only longer, but it is also a complete representation of the data in FirmwareUpdate.pkg

This version of EFIver.py will soon be made is now available. Need to do something for work first. Actually. No. That’s a lie. I first need my cappuccino. Then I can start doing some stuff for work 😉

Note: The warning was triggered by using fake EFI data. This is not a real world scenario. Hey. I had no other way to check it 😉

Tip: I got a tip from someone at a Github issue that people who are using python from homebrew, instead of the native version of python of macOS, should use this to launch the script:

/usr/bin/python efiver.py

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:

installSeed.py v3.3 Copyright (c) 2017 by Pike R. Alpha

Currently running on macOS High Sierra 10.13 Build (17A360a) 
Seed Program Enrollment: DeveloperSeed

Downloading: 091-31306.English.dist [13680 bytes] ...

Queued Download(s):
FirmwareUpdate.pkg [200477927 bytes]

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.
