Bump to thread posted Oct 20. Can someone PM me so we can resolve this case by case rather than wait for another few months for a solution?

We have some news coming. I'm out of this loop now (marketing stuff, not ENG or tech support) so sorry for my lack of replies.

We hope to have something for you early next week. We apologize for the delay.

Thank you Corsair for the speedy non existent customer service. Firmware 5.20 is junk. I was told that i have to wait for the new firmware that corsair says is testing. I have 2 Corsair GS 240GB drives that now sit dead in my case until they release this new firmware. I was also told that i could not go back to 5.05A with my drives.

Please get your stuff together before you release it....

For my understanding, please tell me what's the difference in hardware specifications between these erroneous 5.20 drives and the previous 5.07 ones such that their firmwares updates are different. (5.20 can be upgraded to 5.24 but not the 5.0x ones)

Please provide information Corsair.

Are you saying that you have a Force GX with 5.0x firmware with a signature that matches one of the released firmware files and you've had an issue?

Or are you just asking why the update has only been released for only some drives? If you're asking the latter, we'll be releasing more 5.24 updates as they are validated.

I'm curious to know what the differences in hardware are for the newer Force GS (that come with 5.20 firmware) as opposed to the older ones (that come with 5.05a / 5.07)

IF they had the same internal hardware, doesn't it make sense for it to be possible to flash to the older 5.07?

I'm only asking for information, I'm not suggesting 5.24 is broken or anything.

There are variations to the material list, just like memory variations. The difference between drives with different firmware coming direct from the factory could just be time though.

Most importantly, all force GS drives are MLC and not TLC, right?

and are they of equal manufacture size?18nm, 22nm, etc..
