see attached screenshot. i keep getting the "5570" error pop up. message
Try updating to the latest 4.1 firmware first.
If you have latest firmware (It looks like you do from your screenshot, but check anyway) then download this to Desktop
Double click on the dmg,
Then run the firmware tool, it should find it and install 2010 firmware.
afraid it doesn't work,
it say "it doesn't needed"
it say "this system is unsupported".
do i need to use an older OS X?
I don't think you've done what was suggested.
Mount the DMG you downloaded then run the firmware hack with the official update mounted. The problem which error 5570 is that it can't find the update, because apple moved it. I came up against the same problem and found the answer on Google in about 5 seconds.
oh. ok lol will give it a go.
This is correct. See link to netkas forum thread below and read posts 808 and 817:
I encountered this error when upgrading my own Mac Pro 4,1 to the 5,1 firmware. I followed the procedure in post 808 and successfully finished the update. The simpler approach in post 817 should work as well although I did not personally employ it.
thanks all it worked!
I hope someone knows the answer why my Mac Pro 2009 quad-core 4.1 is failing to accept the 5.1 firmware.
Although I encountered the error 5570, I managed to get through the procedure,...but.....after rebooting, waiting for the light to flicker...than the chime......and after almost 10 minutes booted up again as firmware 4.1.
I've PRAM'ed and tried at least 5 times, everytime the same thing,....flicker and chime, rebooting and....nothing!
You don't have to reboot, you have to shut down the machine completely. Then hold the power button until the display shows the firmware update progress bar.
Thanks @Synchro3, but I failed to state I did shut down, before holding the power button. (English is not my native tongue)
ps I run a PC card, not flashed, so I don't see the progress bar!
The update will not install with a non EFI video card installed. You need to put the original apple card back in while you run the update, or it will never work.
Yeah, this is the problem: The firmware upgrade is only working with a Mac EFI card. Do you still have an other original Mac card?
Strange, I upgraded the firmware of my 2x 2.26 4.1, with no problem and I used a flashed GTX 680.
Ah, no EFI..... OK maybe I put the GTX 680 in the other Mac than, can try that! Thanks @Bubalight.
That must be it, never thought of that,....thanks a lot for bringing back sanity, I was at an end.
OK, I got firmware 5.1 working.
Thanks guys for the quick response.
has the firmware for 5.1 changed at all? I did the flash right when it came out.
The firmware itself didn't change, but the EFIupdate did (they say). You're fine.
Although it seems you don't need it running those quads.
Im thinking of maxing it out in the near future with the dual 6 core 3,4ghz Xeons.
Thanks for the update.
Please download patched app from netkas.
You will need to create an account to see and download app.
Or you can get it from MacRumors forum: http://forums.macrumors.com/attachments/mac-pro-2009-2010-firmware-tool-app-zip.423064/
For the impatient.
Thats the original app from MacEFIRom.
As I understand it, Pigsyn's patched version will help everyone bypass the 5570 error, caused by Apple renaming the cMP 2010 EFI Firmware Update 1.5 download link that was hardcoded into the script of MacEFIRom's original version.
