|(Late 2010) MacBook Air EFI Firmware Update 2.3
"About MacBook Air EFI Firmware Update 2.3

System Requirements: OS X Lion 10.7.3 and later"
Per Apple doc, EFI version after update should be MBA31.0061.B07.

|(Mid-2010) 15in/17in MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.6|
(FYI: Apple's D/L page (1st posting) below lists "Early 2010" but Apple's EFI/SMC updates page lists EFI 2.6 for "Mid-2010" 15in/17in models. I don't think there was an "Early 2010" MBP.)

This update enables Lion Recovery from an Internet connection on MacBook Pro (Early 2010) models.
System Requirements: OS X Lion 10.7.3 and later
Per Apple doc, EFI version after update is MBP61.0057.B0F. (IDs are MacBookPro6,1 and MacBookPro6,2)
There was an EFI Firmware update released on Jan 23rd to add Lion Internet recovery for the 13-inch Mid-2010 MacBook Pro (EFI Update 2.5). (As of tonight that D/L page still has not been corrected for MBP rom version.)
