A new way to resuscitate a dead battery
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Sep 26, '03 03:41:16AM

No, resetting a Mac's "Open Firmware" does not reset the Mac's "firmware" chip. This is an unfortunate case where two different things have similar names. The firmware chip that gets updated by Apple's firmware updaters, is a different chip than the one where the Open Firmware settings are stored. After you do an Open Firmware reset, you don't have to re-apply the latest firmware update to maintain OS X compatibility.
