New MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update For Mid 2010 Models Stops Rare Freezing

Got a current gen MacBook Pro that just won’t play nice with your external display, or has a tendency to freeze at starting line at the sound of the OS X boot chime? Apple has just updated the MacBook Pro EFI firmware to version 1.9.

The new firmware resolves issues where a mid 2010 15- or 17-inch MacBook Pro might freeze during startup or sometimes stall during day-to-day use. In addition, the update clears up some issues hooking your MBP up to certain external displays.

Anyone out there have one of the afflicted models who can give us a first-hand report on whether or not the latest update solves the problem? Hit us up in the comments.
