    I have exactly the same problem, but here in the Apple Store in Paris, they claim to you that the firmware is coming, but F*** can't I wait i have to work and with no machines i'm SO deep in trouble.

     

    I have a brand new Mac Mini 2,5, and the apple LED 24, which i bought in january 2010, and they certainly made me notice that the warranty was over... nice move Apple...

     

    I am NOT LETTING THIS GO, i WANT my 27 inches, for compensation, it's been like 6 hours of my life i spent in the apple store in only a few days... grrrrhhhh

     

    I don't understand, and i'm ready to pay the difference between the price of my LED 24 and the new 27, which is only like 200€.... but still, DO SOMETHING Apple !

    Today Apple released an EFI-Update for the MacMini. I just wanted to know if this update solves the Thunderbolt problems mentioned above because the update-description says:

     

    "This update includes fixes that enhance the stability of Lion Recovery from an Internet connection, and resolve issues with Apple Thunderbolt Display compatibility and Thunderbolt Target Disk Mode performance on Mac Mini (mid 2011) models."

    No joy with the new EFI update for Mac Mini and Cinema Display blackout and flickering...

    Here's what I did with a Mac Mini and it seemed to help.  (I did replace the Mac first -- what a pain. When I saw the flicker again, my heart sunk and almost forked out a grand for the 27" display.)  

     

    I suspected some kind of voltage incompatibility, with the Thunderbolt output on the Mac being too high for the 24" ACD. So, I added an MDP/USB extension line to knock it down some.  (The length on the ACD is rediculously short anyway).  Well, it reduced significantly, but did not eliminate, the flicker.  I added another extension on just the MDP line and appears to (almost 100%) eliminated it.  I have seen one blanking in about a week.

    tbromine that's an interesting idea.  How long were your extension cables?  I just bought a 15 foot usb/mdp expansion on ebay for 14$- hoping that will do the trick.

     

    I have the latest developer release of 10.7.2, and that doesn't fix it, nor does the new efi update.  If it is a voltage problem, I wonder if it can be fixed at all with software.

    Do you have a link to these MDP/USB lines?

     

    PS: if you tweet about this I suggest using #ThunderboltFail

    Hi,

     

    I'm having the same problem since two months now... According 2nd level support agent, "it should be solved with version 10.7.2". Unfortunately he had already said "it will be solved with 10.7.1"...

     

    I think time for patience has gone. I think we all wait because it is an Apple product and we are kind of addicted wich makes us tolerant but for me the limit is reached. This situation is just unacceptable

    Marion, I'm afraid that firmware is for the new Thunderbolt Display. It is nothing to with Mini Display Port monitors like the 24" ACD
