Update Firms Performance for Blue G3 Macs

Send Article to a Friend

Update Firms Performance for Blue G3 Macs -- Apple is recommending that all owners of blue and white Power Mac G3 computers install the Power Macintosh G3 Firmware Update 1.0.2. The update improves performance of PCI devices and the built-in FireWire ports, plus includes enhanced support for NetBoot and minor changes to the Open Firmware for Mac OS X Server. Be sure to follow the installation instructions; the updater resets your Parameter RAM (PRAM) and requires that you hold down the programmer's button (located on the front of the case) while starting up the machine to verify that the firmware is up to date. The Firmware Update 1.0.2 is an 870K download that works on all worldwide systems. [JLC]
