    I don't own a PC, nor a laptop. I have a Mac Pro. How can I do a code update on AMH? Has anyone figured out how to do this?

    You ever find this out? I'd like to update too.

    I actually used boot camp on my MacBook Pro to run windows, which you could do, but you’d have to get a copy of windows. Worked perfect for the update.

    I have been updating my Rob Zombie via a Win 7 BootCamp partition on my MacBook Pro, too. You can't even do it from a virtual machine, because VMWare doesn't give Windows access to the card reader. It's a pain, but I have been really reluctant to try the update natively from my Mac. I'd hate to brick my board. Even though Disk Utility will format the card in the required FAT32 scheme, the macOS writes numerous normally invisible files to the file system (.DS_Store, .Spotlight-V100, etc.) The Pinheck system seems extremely sensitive to the way the files are written to the card (hence the instruction to re-format with each update.) Fawzma was pretty noncommittal when I asked him about doing this. Maybe we could get a definitive answer from Ben?
