System Menu > About This Mac. Click on More Info, then look for the "Power" section. It should show battery status, including Cycle Count.

My 2010 i5 15" Macbook Pro has 1100 cycles and the battery seems as strong as ever.

Update worked fine.

That would be a different firmware update than the one in the thread. Unfortunately there is a risk in updating firmware that if something goes wrong, the device can become useless.

Having gone through 15-20 firmware updates in my time, I think this might be a PEBKAC issue.

When I was in school I was using 2-3 full cycles a day, so a thousand cycles in a year was easy!
