Intel fix issues with X25 M G2

Product image

We reported last month that many Generation 2 X25 M SSD owners were having a plethora of issues with the last firmware Intel released — some people even reported complete drive failures. The good news is that Intel have released a new firmware update for the G2 series SSDs.

The new 02HD firmware comes bundled with a new firmware update tool (1.5) and the firmware applies to both 80GB and 160GB X25-M G2 SSDs. It is worth mentioning that this update, like the older one boosts write speeds by 40 percent for the 160GB X25 M G2 and adds trim support under Windows 7.

We flashed our own drive today and it works fine, so hopefully no one runs into issues with this update.

Get the firmware over here.
