As far as I can tell, the MacBook EFI Update hasn't been modified recently. I pulled down a fresh copy and the pkg file has an 11/7/14 1:54 AM modification date stamp.

Huh? This EFI Firmware update is from January, 2012. It's not new. You can read about it here: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1480?locale=en_US Maybe MU is catching up with listing the v2.1 update on their site? Anyway, this is old stuff.

Worked like a charm. You must load this first before the SMC update.

It is not noted in any of the documentation that this does not apply to a MACBOOK2,1. I have a macbook, 2 gig dual core and the update is not for it. This update is not for machook 2006 or early 2007; only from later 2007 and forward. it would be nice if this was documented.

After installing the firmware update, my USB ports are now extremely slow. Printing a color page takes 20 minutes... scanning fails... and my TV Mini HD device won't even start up.

I just applied this to my 2.16Ghz and it works fine after. Seems to be a tiny bit snappier.
