Did the screen turn black for 5-10 seconds?
If so..the card was flashed...if not the card wasn't...

You could also try after running the applescript to run the 2.1.1 updater itself...

Otherwise feel free to email me....

When I ran the Applescript, the screen did not turn black - so I guess it never was completely flashed. I tried the 2.1.1 updater, but it returned the error "this program cannot run on your computer." I don't understand why the Applescript refused to completely flash my card because I even checked the syntax. Perhaps the chipset is somehow different the one Apple uses?

I had exactly the same outcome. My screen also did not go black, but Profiler shows it to have Mac Rom but with a different rom number 1027F I think. Same garbage screen etc. Any tips would be appreciated.

I've tried the solutions published at
with two different videocards:
1 Hercules 3D Prophet II Ultra 64 (Geforce2 Ultra) and
1 Asus V7100M-LP/32M( T ) (Geforce2 MX 32)
on a PowerMac G4 'sawtooth' 400 mHz
and when I ran the Applescript the screen did not turn black
so I think that I've flashed no cards
Have you found a solution that work in the meantime?

No I've not been able to get it to work either. But I checked the AppleScript dictionary for 'AENV MacFlash [1045-MRS]' and the command 'FlashRom' and one of the results (which I get) is '4200: generic error.' Any AppleScript gurus out there who know what that means and how to fix it?
