Updating Metz firmware on MacOSX Mavericks or Yosemite


I have just acquired a Metz 58 AF-2 that is on firmware version 2, while the current available firmware revision is at version 4.1

The firmware updater available at the metz website includes an installer for a USB driver, specifically FTDIUSBSerialDriver_10_4_10_5_10_6.pkg.

The '10_4', '10_5' and '10_6' in the file namke refers to versions of the operating system that this is compatible with, so implying that it os not OK with OS versions after 10.6, though further reading suggests that it should be OK up to at least 10.8.

OSX 10.9 has a different type of USB driver already installed as part of the kernel.

My question is has anyone successfully updated metz firmware for any flash, but especially the 58 af-2 from MacOSX 10.9 or 10.10, and if so did you follow the update process described by Metz, or did you do so without installing the USB driver they provide in the download?

Did everything go OK?

Thanks in advance

I updated my Metz 50 AF-1 while running Yosemite. I did install whatever it asked to, including drivers.
