Hi, so I've repaired plenty of Ultra 5 and 10 NVRAM chips, hack apart, install coin cell, reprogram, no problem at all. But recently I bought an old Blade 100, which typical of old Sun's, had a failed NVRAM - being as I've done so many I didn't think anything of it, and expected the same routine... once the machine was reassembled I was hit with a bit of a hiccup that I wasn't expecting... The Blade 100 OBP doesn't have the MKP command!?

I've googled the heck out of a solution, and found a Github repo that had a"Blade 100 NVRAM fix", but that didn't work. Is there a Sun engineer in the house that knows how to reprogram these later machines, without the MKP command!?

Can you stick it in another machine that has MKP?

Awesome, thank you! I'll work my way through it. I don't have another machine running OBP 4.0 with a socketed IDPROM socket sadly. But that guide looks like a good start...
