Giga Designs Updater 3.01 software?

I am in the business of trying to get a Giga Designs G4 (1.6 single) working in a DA with 9.2.2... and I need this software. I was wondering if anyone had it or could point me to it? Macgurus site was a promising lead, but no responses over there and while Gigadesigns.com is browse-able using the wayback machine, the software isn't there to download.

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks!

Ok I have it and the image is 3 mb cd.  Its a dmg so you should be able to burn it right to cd no problem.  Just message me a good email to send it.

I have Giga software I used to install my dual 1.8 GHz variant with.  When I get home I'll check which version it is.

Re: Giga Designs Updater 3.01 software?

As a (late) follow-up, I have the following files related to Giga Designs:

- 7447A Firmware Updater v2.1.0 for OS X
- 7455 Firmware Updater v3.0.1 for OS X
- Giga-Meter 1.0.1
- G-celerator Cube User Guide pdf
- G-celerator M7 Cube Installation Guide pdf

  If anyone needs these please PM me and I'll put them online.  One thing I don't have is the 7457 Firmware Updater mentioned in the Cube documentation.  I'd like to have that for completeness' sake if anyone can post it.

Hey thanks! Sorry for the late reply. I did get the software from macdrone, so I'm all set, but it's great you can provide it to others, if need be!

Can someone make the software available? It seems hard to find it nowadays in the net.

Thanks.

Could somebody please provide me with the Giga Design software? I've got a Cube 1600 Mhz that I would like te restore. CPU speed in not visible at the moment. I expect this to relate to the missing Giga Design firmware.

Many thanks in advance!

Yeah, Gmail hates software binaries. Even when zipped (a more obscure archive format might get through, however).
