Apple issues firmware updates, Thunderbolt software update, more

Quote:
Apple has issued a number of updates this week, in addition to iPhoto 9.2.1. Here's what's newly available.

Thunderbolt Software Update 1.1 is for those using Lion on a Thunderbolt-equipped Mac. Apple says it "provides support for the Apple Thunderbolt Display and bug fixes for Thunderbolt device compatibility." Mac OS X 10.7.2 or later is required.

iMac EFI Firmware Update 1.7 is for early 2011 iMacs. According to Apple, this update "enables Lion Recovery from an Internet connection and includes fixes that resolve issues with Apple Thunderbolt Display compatibility and Thunderbolt Target Disk Mode performance on iMac (early 2011) models."

MacBook Air EFI Firmware Update 2.2 is for mid-2011 MacBook Airs and offers stability improvements, resolves Thunderbolt display compatibility issues and improves Lion recovery from an Internet connection.

Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.4 is for mid-2011 Mac minis and offers, you guessed it, improved stability of Lion Recovery from an Internet connection and fixes for Thunderbolt Display compatibility. Plus, improved Thunderbolt Target Disk Mode.

MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.3 is also available (are you sensing a trend?). This update is for early 2011 MacBook Pros and it improves the stability of Lion Recovery from an Internet connection, fixes Thunderbolt Display compatibility and fixes Thunderbolt Target Disk Mode.

Before installing these updates, be certain you have a good backup. I strongly suggest both a clone and Time Machine. The firmware update is a bit scary as it installs. When it's finished, it'll ask to reboot. During the reboot you'll hear a loud "beep" and the screen will go black for about 15 seconds.

The screen will then light up and the firmware update will begin to install with a progress bar at the bottom. It then will reboot twice before finally settling down to normal.

iMac owners - use an UPS if possible. If the power should go off during the install it could cause problems. MBP owners - make sure your battery is fully charged.
