Hi,

Thank you MacTella for the Linux firmware updater, it worked perfectly.

FYI, I used an USB Flash disk that I made bootable on an intel Macintosh using this tutorial :

I installed latest Lubuntu live CD on it and boot on it.


Here is how to do :

1 - Format a USB drive to provide a single FAT32 partition featuring MBR.
2 - Create the following directories on your USB drive: /efi and /efi/boot
3 - Copy the bootX64.efi from “ISO-2-USB EFI-Booter for Mac 0.01 beta” into /efi/boot on your USB Drive.

4 - Copy the (L)ubuntu Mac image into /efi/boot/ on the USB Drive, too and rename it to “boot.iso”.

I also had the files (flash tool + firmwares) on a second USB flash disk, and I copied them to the desktop of Lubuntu.

Flash Tool : http://media.Kingston.com/support/do..._503FW_Lnx.zip
Firmwares : http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=110257

If I do remember, I also had to make the flashing tool executable.

I ran the flashing tool with sudo command (via a terminal) in order to recognize my SSD.

Thanks !
