Hi everyone,

I was wondering what would be the best method to update MicroCenter 128GB SSD firmware?

MicroCenter 128GB SSD uses JMicron 612 controller. And I am guessing they are A-DATA S596 re-branded ones.

As of today, A-Data has 2 firmware updates for their SSDs, but as expected they don't work on Micro Center SSD. :ange:  ( I tried, got the error says "no A-data driver found".)

But if I check the firmware version of the MicroCenter SSD and ADATA SSDs, I see that they have an exact match.

whats your motherboard
and I wasnt aware that the jmicron needed updated..

I thought only the sandforce based one had issues?

Before I returned my microcenter branded ssd I read their documentation on it.
apparantly its only supported on achi mode with intel chipset (and most amd chipsets)

nvidia chipset is unsupported and you cant flash.
