Hi, I have a macbook pro A1502 EMC 2835 and I am trying to locate the eprom chip on the intel board. Is there a schematic that will show this to me or can you provide me with a reference? I can send you a picture of intel board if that would help.

Expert:  Wes replied 11 months ago.

If so, this video should give you an idea of where the eeprom is.

I am trying to remove the Eprom password ***** I have done an exhaustive review of online resources. They are not helpful as the intel board for this Mac is different than the ones on YouTube (which is why I gave you the model number - A1502 EMC 2835 - in the first place.You can't possibly charge neck US$30 to tell me to look at a video on YouTube!!!?!
Expert:  Wes replied 11 months ago.

Do you have the system apart? Can you take a high res photo of the various sections of the board?

What about the underside of the board?

Expert:  Wes replied 11 months ago.

look on the underside of the logic board for a chip that says "MX25L6473E" on it.

Expert:  Wes replied 11 months ago.

Otherwise look for a Windbond 25064FVIQ.

In the following pic, it should be the one outlined in light blue...

Expert:  Wes replied 11 months ago.

And what I mean by "light blue" above I'm talking about the chip that's below the red and the yellow... not the aqua outlined one to the left.
