MacBook Pro 2.0 update = MISTAKE . . . Problems!


Apple released a new supposedly productive update for the MacBook Pro & MacBook Air (mid 2012) just a few days ago [Nov 8, 2012]. I installed this new 2.0 update, and have encountered far more problems than what it perfectly was prior to the update. For the first time with an Apple product could I say "if its not broke, don't fix it" !! And surely enough I did the opposite..


Since the 2.0 update, my MacBook Pro (mid 2012) now experiences:


  • an annoying abundance of questions like "MAC OS X WANTS TO ACCESS YOUR "LOGIN" KEYCHAIN
  • activity monitor now sometimes doesn't work even when the app is active in the dock
  • when I play DVDs or any CDs of which, it will not eject both by pressing the button and/or by clicking eject. It comes with a system error (-47) Screen Shot 2012-11-11 at 11.57.56 PM.pngScreen Shot 2012-11-11 at 11.59.34 PM.png
  • the whole performance of my MacBook has seemed sluggish, and somehow uses a lot more RAM since its update


Please tell me I'm not the only one experiencing continuous new flaws since the MacBook Pro & Air 2.0 Update !! I have yet to wait and find out what new problems surface as time goes on before something can fix this ridiculous update. One thing for sure is that I will not update anything again until after I have read from legitimate sources and users that these so-called updates are progressive! I hope Apple has some sort of solution for me and whomever else is experiencing problems from this 2.0 update that was released on Nov 8th I believe..


If anyone else has been experiencing problems since the 2.0 update, please leave comments/solutions ~ thanks


Apple, please tell me there's a solution to this terrible update..

    I'm getting the same keychain problems and they're REALLY annoying.  I don't have a CDROM drive so I can't test that. 


    Apple PLEASE fix this ASAP.  I might be tempted to use my Windows PC if you don't.  (gulp!)


    Oh, and Keychain First Aid (in Keychain Access) does nothing.  It says everything is fine.

    I also had this problem with a new 15" retina MBP. Keychain First Aid and repairing permissions did nothing. I deleted the login keychain and made a new one -- nothing.


    For now, I've used TimeMachine to restore the system back to before the install. This worked, but isn't a 'solution'.  Lost half my weekend too.


    I'm mainly posting here in the hope that Apple checks these boards. There are lots of comments all over the web about this error. I haven't seen any solutions yet though.  Any ideas anyone?

    I've been having issues with this too. It sometimes seems like a permissions issue, but I've found that it most reliably crops up if the apps were set to restore after the Mac restarts.

    Nothing works reliably then and the only solution is to quit each of the apps and restart them, and that includes the Finder. Still, some things that worked before don't now. If I try to doube click an item in the Keychain with my mouse, it won't open, Same with text in pages. a double click once selected a word, now it does nothing.

    Running this 10.82 update on a rMBPro.

    I've also had to disable the lock screen on startup and wake. That would reliably trigger dark screen with occasional flickering that wouldn't allow me to enter a password or to access the desktop anymore.

    I have contacted AppleCare, but at this stage, they don't seem to have a solution.  They just told me to wait for the next update.


    It doesn't sound like anyone has found a fix for this yet.

  • mizzer-d Level 1 (5 points)

    This seems to have helped my symptoms:

    1. Click on Apple Menu-> Shutdown....
    2. UNcheck "Reopen windows when logging back in"
    3. Click Shut Down
    4. I waited about 30 seconds, but you may not have to
    5. Startup again normally and login


    Many of my keychain issues disappeared at this point.  I'm still investigating to see if they are all gone.


    Hope that helps someone.

    Interesting.  Unfortunately I have that box unchecked by default, but I still had keychain errors.  I'd be interested to hear if this completely clears things up for you.

    It's a complete balls up.


    I had to restore form Time Machine - took out more than half my work day.  I couldn't work with the mess that resulted from Update 2.0.


    A really poor update here.  How did it pass QA given it only ran on such a select number of models?

  • Bowler4Ever Level 1 (0 points)

    The only problem I had after installing the update is my MacBook Pro is SUPER SLOW. I kid you not when I say it took my Mac OVER AN HOUR to fully awaken from sleep mode before I could even use the trackpad! It's still very sluggish after a couple of hours. Being a student and all, this is a major inconvenience.

  • alfredandrew Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm having same issue here and its annoying had to restart my laptop every now and then... keep getting "Mac os x wants to use the "login" keychain. Please enter the keychain password."! it messes up wth my Outlook, my Lync and to all my browser. Also to my facetime and iMessage! all of this weird stuff came since my last update. so ******!!!!

  • mizzer-d Level 1 (5 points)

    I wrote the below post too soon.  The keychain problem reappeared.




    So far so good.  Rebooting without reopening windows at Login seems to have helped.  I can't find many, if any, remaining problems.  I didn't mention this in my earlier post, but before rebooting, I exited the utilities that were failing, such as Fantastical. 


    If you're having this problem try opening Keychain and running Keychain First Aid.  Errors in the keychain can cause symptoms like this too.  (When I tried it showed no errors.)  I'd also try repairing disk permissions and verifying the disk in Disk Utility, just in case.  (I had one minor permissions issue that was fixed and no errors on the disk.)


    Good luck to all.  This problem REALLY stinks.

    I had this issue right after installing the update. Called AppleCare, the only fix at this point is to re-install the OS and not to install that update.


    Really *****, I lost several days of work with this one.
