Hi,

anybody made some experience updating the firmware on a Intel x25 G2 160 Gb with a MacBook Pro?

I'm still afraid - never change a running system.....

No reason to be worried, it works just fine. Back up your data first to a sparseimage file using Carbon Copy Cloner to another drive if you're worried. I did the update on my Fall 2008 Unibody MacBook 13" and it went just fine.

I have a mid-2009 13" MacBook Pro with a G2 160GB SSD and it flashed fine.

It has flushed fine as well on mine but, I only get Max of 200Mb read and 100 write... I've tested in Windows 7 x64 bit with HDTune and CrystalDisk. What an I going wrong? My drive is x25-m 160gb G2 02HD

Hi Solaris41,

I know how you feel. I updated my Macbook Pro 17 and everything worked perfectly. I'm running OSX and Ubuntu 9:10. I split the drive 80GB a piece. For Ubuntu i'm pulling 220 MB/sec direct reads. Under OSX i benched the drive as approximately 200-205 MBsec on reads and 95 MB/sec on write.

Everything is working good.
