Great find Solarduaun 2010 ! Give it a try on your CustoMac and report back what the
differences are with each of the different updates. This could be important for all those
with socket 2011 builds.

I feel sad,I get a system message box when I try to install the newest update app 'your system is not support by this software',may be it is made for the true late 2013 vision Mac Pro,it is not suitable for the hackintosh,although we had the similar hardware.

can someone make some ideas to help us to solve that issue,maybe we can hack Socket 2011 machines as late 2013 mac pro,but need someone upload the new mac pro EFI first.I will wait,think about the issue.

Does someone can suggest me some method,modify the root or some other ways?

It will require modification of the system definition on your build, specifically the smbios.plist
Some testing will have to be done by someone like MacMan who understands how this all works.
Then once the 6,1 sys def is part of multi beast we can see if your specific hardware will still boot
properly. There's a lot we don't know yet cause no one has a NMP unless you work for the Verge or Macworld etc.

I figured out how to install the MacPro Update on any System:

The Update for the new Mac Pro: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1707

Copy the Package out of the DMG file you downloaded and put it on your desktop
Get "Flat Package Editor" (it ships with XCode)
Open the Package on your desktop with the Flat Package Editor
Copy the File "Distribution" to your desktop
Open it with TextEdit
Search for "-1"
Remove the - so that it is just "1" and save
Delete the old Distribution in the Flat Package Editor
Copy your edited in and save
Run the modified Package

I did not run the Update myself, as I have an Ivy Bridge System, but it starts without message :D

Excellent @Flyhero ! Now we need some beta testers with socket 2011 builds to test this out.

Good idea, if you've got a Haswell or Ivy Bridge or older system don't install this version of 10.9.1
on your main install of OS X. It wouldn't give any added benefit to you anyway.

I've found an about this Mac that shows us the unique 10.9 build that came with
Mac Pros that have already shipped out. There may be a problem with adding that
10.9.1 update to a CustoMac that has a different version of 10.9 installed.

10.9.0 Mac Pro special build is: 13A4023 which I believe is different from the 10.9 we all downloaded.

Possibly try and find the Mac Pro combo update and clean install that on your machine
to see what happens. I can't seem to find it anywhere in the Apple support section. May
be that combo updates are now only available through the App store.
