Good news! After nearly two months of testing, we’re pleased to announce we’ve approved a new updated SandForce firmware version for our SSDs.
Now every drive that ships from OWC as of last Friday will have that new firmware which 100% resolves any hibernation issue you may have experienced.
While this issue only affected around 10% of all our SSD customers, we’re 100% committed to everyone’s satisfaction.
So, you can get this new firmware update in one of two ways:
Visit our firmware update page
or you can contact us to arrange sending your drive to us and we’ll flash update the drive for you.
Now, let me head you off at the pass….we do not have a Mac based firmware updater yet. While SandForce initially indicated they were going to create a universal updater, we feel you have waited patiently long enough and have taken up the baton on this ourselves. We’re working diligently on this and will let you know when we have something ready.
OWC Note: As there has been some confusion between Sleep & Hibernation…
There have been two SandForce-related issues with some of these drives, both of which can be corrected at this time.
