    Hi guys, some days ago I bought a Sonnet Encore G4 1.2Ghz Cpu upgrade for my Powermac 3.3.
    Dowloaded the Sonnet Firmware updater for 10.4, tried with the Sonnet CPU and gave me this error :

    Readed somewhere that the update should be done with the original cpu, changed cpu, the same thing.
    Today I installed Leopard, and tried again (with the sonnet cpu there) and the same thing, any ideas?
    I already have the latest apple official firmware for this powermac..

    Nope.
    yes those were the instructions that I was following, although I was misunderstanding them (I didn't realized that I needed to reboot in programing mode, thanks a lot.
    Firmware updated , with the processor on (I guess they only say thaht you need the original processor for machines that don't work with the upgraded cpu without the patch.
    Thanks a lot
