    I tried updating my 2010 15" Macbook pro 2.53 i5 today. It kept going through like it was going to update but it wouldn't actually update. I tried downloading the update manually from apple support also with no luck. Does anyone know how to get this installed?

    UPDATE: Nvm, its because i didn't have my Macbook Pro plugged in

    Would I be any better off installing this while using Snow Leopard?

    "Would I be any better off installing this while using Snow Leopard?"

    I have an "early 2010" MacBook Pro 13". It's currently running 10.6.8.

    I downloaded the just-released firmware update, tried to install it.

    When double-clicked, the installer pkg file throws up the following error alert:
    "This software is not supported on your system"

    Well…. I have the very "system" it's intended for, that being an "early 2010" MacBook Pro!

    Having said that, perhaps the firmware update will only run under Lion….
