    disabling open password?
    I currently have the EFI password aka. open firmware password installed on my intel mbp. The thing is that I would like to disable it it getting a little annoying, I can't reset nvram, pram, and other things the password blocks these keystrokes in case of emergency. I there any way that I can disable it? without moving RAM, only got 1 stick 1 GB. Any tips tricks?

    I found this:

    Disabling Password Protection

    1) Boot into the Open Firmware. (Command + Option + O + F)

    2) Type "setenv security-mode none" and press return.

    3) Enter in the password at the password request prompt and press return.

    4) Then type "reset-all" to restart the computer.

    Thanks for the reply, but this does not either I tried it right when rebooted a couple times, it doesn't work. I later found out that the password also blocks the ability to boot in open firmware. Any one else have any ideas?
