Shuttle has a new Ivy Bridge BIOS v 202, with a modified uCode and SMBIOS.
uCode basically identifies the processor in the BIOS
SMBIOS is System Management BIOS which addresses how motherboard and system vendors present management information about their products in a standard format by extending the BIOS interface on Intel architecture systems.
The IVY Bridge BIOS updates have to be installed using DOS mode only, so I thought I’d post the link for creating a DOS bootable Flash drive. How to create a DOS bootable Flash drive.
NOTE: This BIOS update is only for an SH67H3/7 with a “version 2” motherboard.
See my prior posts on how to tell which version motherboard you have and if you want to upgrade to the “Version 2” motherboard (for US customers only).
For those that don’t have an SH67H3 you can purchase one here with the “Version 2” motherboard Ivy Bridge support for $249.99.

I just updated to Lion version 10.7.4 on my XH61 with no problems.
Didn’t have to reinstall any kexts.

Without a DSDT for this board, I finally got the Audio to work using VoodooHDA 2.7.2 and I installed the modified AppleHDA.kext 2.13.
I have restarted this 5 times now and no KPs have occurred.
I tried using the VoodooHDA 2.7.3 and got a panic everytime, even with the modified AppleHDA.kext 2.13 or the AppleHDA Rollback, that some people have said stopped the KPs on the H3/7.

There is a firmware update for the Asmedia USB 3.0 that can be installed on the H3.
The update only works with Mac OS X Lion and must be installed through Windows. I did test it on Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and it definitely does not work. So, I’ll be upgrading to Lion very shortly.
You can use the NEC/Renesas USB 3.0 driver in Multibeast.
Here is the download link for the firmware update.
