I am sorry but we cannot release any information on un-released hardware or software. We are working the next release but I have no ETA at this time, sorry!

What recourse do we have as customers? I realize that you are only the technical interface. Who can we talk to on the business side about the timeline?

There are a lot of unwritten rules in this industry and one of them is to not ask for timelines or due dates. If there is a new firmware revision in development it will be done when it's done. It's better to wait a little longer for a 100% working firmware than for them to rush one that still has bugs.

You need to put the SSD in the original hard disc slot. That solves the problem. If you put it on the SATA that used to be connected to the DVD drive you will have the hibernate issue. This fixed it for me and in one of the biggest German tech magazines it was stated as a known problem and fix as well.

BTW: This fixed it for me with a F120 and Firmware 1.0.

Kind regards,
JP

Does not fix for me, I use F120 (2.0 fw) in the HD slot, I have DVD drive in it's place.

What is your Macbook model? Are you sure you it's the same issue discussed here?

See my problem report here and how to reproduce it:

Hi,

indeed I was referring to the sleep problem. I am not using hibernate so I would not be able to comment on your problem. It is a MBP 15" 2010 Core 7.

Regards,
JP

Yes there are reports for two kind of problems, sleep issue (suspend to RAM) and hibernate issue (suspend to HDD).

Now when I read back, this thread is mainly about the sleep issue, not hibernate. I'm sorry that I replied to wrong thread.

I am sorry but if you are still having a problem I would suggest using another HDD in your system until the next firmware release either from Apple or from us.

Resuming from hibernate is fixed in 2.4 firmware.

Here's how I flashed my drive (from memory, please correct if I missed something):
1. Burn firmware files on cd / dvd
2. Open Boot Camp Assistant
3. Insert Windows 7 32-bit installation DVD (requires less space than 64-bit) and
Select Install Windows 7 (uncheck download support software)
4. Create 20GB Windows partition (takes a while)
5. Install Windows 7, when asks for setup key, it can be skipped if you don't need to keep the installation
6. After installation, copy firmware files on c:
7. Run the FW update tool as administrator, (select the file -> press alt key -> file -> run as administrator)
8. Wait that the SSD is detected and select it
9. Browse for package file (.pkg in the same directory as the update tool)
10. Click Download Firmware to Selected drive
11. After procedure reboot and run update tool again to check FW was upgraded
12. Now you can reboot back to OS X (press alt on bootup) and run Boot Camp assistant to remove Windows installation if you like
