Zitat von MartPwnS im Beitrag #22You cannot expect such tool from this Forum.
I hope someone releases a tool for this.
It is the task of Samsung resp. the manufacturer of your mainboard/system.
Yeah i know that.
I just said that i want such a tool in general i am well aware that noone in this forum can provide one.
The thing is, if dell,lenovo etc dont provide firmware updates for these devices (SM and PM951) they will most likely crash during certain operations once the patches i linked make it to mainline linux. So thats the only hope i have left someone at samsung notices these patches and pressures the manufacturers to fix these issues (giving us another tool to update the firmware). As of now dell has never issued a firmware update for the PM951 nor for the SM951.

Thank you for your reply. I will ask him. Did anyone try to do that before? Since it's not my system, I'd like to know if this will work before asking him to invest his time.
If you meant to contact Andy Lutomirski dont do it.
I already wrote him and i dont want him to get annoyed because its not his job to fix issues with buggy device firmware i hope he somehow manages to find a fix or gets samsung to release a firmware update.
However it might be worth a try to ask the devs of https://github.com/linux-nvme/nvme-cli
if theres a way in the nvme specs that allows pulling the firmware from the device.EDIT by Fernando: Unneeded parts of the fully quoted post removed (to save space)
