    Hi,

    I have three times tried to update to the latest EFI update revision through Software Update - every time it tells me it's all gone through, and it reboots as expected. When I check Software Update again, the update is still there and it says I need it. Has anyone else had this?

    My BootROM/EFI revision (post attempted update) is: MBP81.0047.B24

    I do not know the version # of the EFI firmware made available today to compare.


    Thanks in advance :)

    my update was flawless

    my Bootrom version is:
    MBP81.0047.B27

    mine updated flawlessly, but was surprised that 10.7.3 update was smooth too.
    my friends 13" got currupted didn't want to boot.

    Same issue with my 2011 Mac Mini sadly. No idea, maybe we bought ours so recently it came with it pre-installed? Who knows.

    I don't know what to suggest mate, and it wouldn't be me to mess around with low-level firmware... have you contacted Apple?

    Mine took two separate downloads and updates to work. Strange. Early 2011 17".

    I am having the same issue on my 11" MacBook Air with EFI update 2.4. It downloads, installs, tells me it was successful, reboots and then doesn't update anything. If I run Software Update again, boom, it's there. It's done this repeatedly with Software Update and also the manual download from the Apple website. It's driving me insane.

    I even went so far as to turn off Filevault 2 and decrypt my drive to make sure that wasn't interfering, but it makes no difference.
