How to revive Intel 535 SSD after failed firmware update?

Jump to solution

Hello.

 

I have 2 Intel 535 180GB SSD. I bought another same SSD. It had DevSleep enabled, so I decided to update firmware of it. After updating, it doesn't appear in BIOS. When I short together rom mode jumper on the SSD board, it appears as sandforce {200026BB}. The data on SSD is obsolete, I would like to revive the SSD. Please help me do this.

Hello Ohforf, Thank you for your reply. Actually in case that any customer experiences an issue after the firmware update should contact us directly: Contact Support: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport In order to verify the warranty status of the product and should never open or try to modify his/her SSD in any way that can void the warranty of the product as stated in the article “Limited Warranties for Intel® Solid-State Drives and Modules” (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005861/memory-and-storage.html) This case is now closed.

Hello Ohforf, Thank you for your reply. For this situation, we do recommend to you the following https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25348 firmware version link to install to the SSD and fix this situation. For this update, you need to create either a USB thumb drive or a CD, once you run it and install it, please let us know if the issue was resolved. We will be looking forward to your reply.

This update bricked my SSD in the first place. But OK, I downloaded it again, but it doesn't recognize my SSD (see photo).

Hello Ohforf, Thank you for your reply. As you stated on your first post, you opened you SSD, accessed to the main board and performed a short on your SSD, this process voids your drive warranty. Based on the screenshot you shared FUT is not detecting your drive and you cannot re-flash your firmware. If this information is correct our only recommendation is to replace your SSD.

So, basically, what you says is: if someone uses Update Tool 2.0.15 and bricks his/her SSD, it's users' fault and this is not fixable. Good to know, now I will definitely buy and recommend anything but Intel. Thanks.
