I have a late 2008 Macbook (the unibody with removable battery one). I want to roll back my firmware to an older version, because apparently I have this weird, discretely released version of the current firmware that doesn't allow third party batteries. However, apparently rolling back the firmware is not easy. I was told by an apple employee that if I do a factory reset I've got about 70-30 chance of this resetting the relevant things.

So basically, I want to back up my files, but I don't want to use an application that carries over everything (like time machine) since I want all the system stuff to be reset. Basically, I want to drag n' drop. But of course, I want to drag and drop so as many things stay working as possible. Any tips here? For example, can I just drag and drop the applications folder, or will I want to include the "Library" folder if I want thing to actually work? Or am I better off just reinstalling applications?


Thanks in advance!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
