    I've run the update twice, and it's still showing in the App Store. Is this normal? Should I just ignore it for now? I've been having lots of problems waking from sleep, so I want to make sure this update gets applied.

    Exactly same issue here. I applied it twice, it seemed to install fine, restarted, it's again listed in the "updates" section.


    What's going on?

    Same issue here. Installed it 3 times - no errors, the Mac restarts, still same old Firmware version and the update still appears in the AppStore.

    EFI 2.9 is designed only for mid-2011 MBA's of course.
    if you download the update manually and install on a mid-2011 Air it should work and disappear from App Store as an update.
    if it is indeed still showing, then it's a mystery to me also … …

    Thanks for the tip! Do you know the URL for the update to do it manually?

    Thanks in advance.

    Did the manual download and install, problem still exists. ugh

    Just tried to update my 2011 MBA. Tried twice from the App Store, and once manually. Shows the update is still available.

    Those for whom it failed to install may be the lucky ones. There are a lot of reports of it completely bricking machines.

    It installed ok for me but now I'm having all kinds of WiFi problems, which is what it was supposed to fix. It now never connects to my network when waking from sleep. I have to manually point it to my network and tell it to connect every time.

    ... Based on that apple forum, and the MR forms . . I'm just going to wait this one out.

    Hopefully they'll release a patched update in a few days to address the issue.
