Hello to all after 4years. No i didnt fix the MBPro, i got a new one instead :-), but… seeing it beeing dusty on the shelve really hurts my feelings, so i thought maybe ill give it a go. But before i do, i was wondering what is the latest OS that can run seamlessly on my good old MBPro? :-)
Ok, i decided to try the reflow procedure, since it was working for many other users who have tried it! So i covered the MBPro in a blanket and turned it on for 40min, it got quite hot! Then i shut it down and restarted it, it booted fine without any issues and worked as if it was brand new! Just to make sure i restarted it a couple of times, all seemed it was ok! Of course im not expecting this to last for ever, but in case it doesn't work again, il go straight in replacing the logic board!
