@ staveley:

Thanks for your report.
It is fine, that you succeeded at least with the ASMedia 104x USB 3.0 Firmware update.
Please attach the truncated firmware file.

Will report back in some weeks to let you all know!


To quote myself : no problems so far, no more lock-up since the driver+firmware upgrade.
@lordkag : big thanks again !!

It is funny that the flasher can't properly analyse the same firmware it dumped. Anyway, it seems the flasher reads the header of the firmware, gets the declared size of 0x10000, then somehow thinks the rest of the padding is a part of the firmware or a new firmware. Weird stuff, but you soon learn to move past those glitches and just feed the flasher what it expects. Just two observations: in the pack you uploaded, the u.bat still points to 131025.bin, in case anyone is getting another error of "file not found"; the second one is that you updated 104XFW.CFG with new values, that might not work for every controller, but the good thing is that you left them commented, so no real danger there.

@daffie

Nothing to thank me. It is not like I coded the firmware myself. On one hand you can thank ASMedia for fixing the bugs, but on the other hand you can complain about their policy of not releasing the firmware to the public. I still don't understand this practice of "they don't ask, we don't tell" when it comes to firmwares and OROMs, the secrecy of releases. What's the point of fixing your firmware if not to release it to all customers? It is not like they have to compile it for every OEM and then test it with every board. It either works or it doesn't. I hope we will see a public release of all/important firmware, someday. And not just for ASMedia.

@9tailsfox

If you flashed ASMedia_asm104x_131025MOD (!!! MOD !!!), then I already posted a reply here, right bellow the image. There is nothing I can add, because it will range from rudeness to offensive. You have to live with your own mistakes. But if you flashed another image, then you will need to add: what image, what controller, what board.

People tend to skip to the end when it comes to such things which can only be dangerous. Still, if you tell me which post contains this ready-to-brick-your-controller firmware I can delete it and avoid any such issues in the future.

Regarding not releasing up-to-date firmware I couldn't agree more and have one thing to say: *cough...CLEVO...cough* (not even BIOS, go figure...)

If only this was the case! I sometimes do this, skip to the end and go backwards until I have enough info. But they jumped right to the post where I posted a modded firmware and ignored the warnings, ignored the next post with Hanson's reply. That is why I have no help for them.

It is this post that seems to be stuck in people's mind. The file Asmedia_asm104x_131025mod.rar is the blame, the other is fine. Can you add a big warning that this file bricks controllers and maybe also delete it?

Can't you edit your old post yourself?

I thought it is impossible to edit a post after this long time, since I already had a similar situation some months ago, where a 2 weeks old post couldn't be edited. But I tried and it worked. Kind off, because it deleted every file but the one I wanted. I had to remove all other pictures and files before I could delete the one I wanted.

Now there should be no more complaints.

Ooops, have corrected the fw filename (and also added the original cfg file) & attached to post #90.

EDIT by Fernando: Quoting code corrected

#103 USB 3.0 Boost by RoughBoy 05.04.2015 13:53

I use a mainboard Asus P8P67 Rev3.1 with an onboard USB 3.0 controller ASM1042.
With the all the information from Fernando’s Win-RAID Forum I updated the firmware to 130125_00_02_00 successfully and all worked so far without any problems.
The Asus USB 3.0 Boost seems to work too. I use the AISuite II V20101 for it. In the USB 3.0 Boost - tool I can manually switch to Turbo mode and it improves the transfer data a bit.
Does anybody know if it's possible that the Turbo mode is automatically activated
Many thanks for your answers in advance.

@Fernando
@lordkag

Hi Guys, I've done some more testing & it looks like the .bin file size is the problem. All my other versions of 104x firmware are 64KB but Fernando's file is 128KB.
When I run the update with the 128KB file I get this:(...)


To make things clear, I flashed 130125_00_02_00 into my 1042 (non A) PCIe card combo just as Lordkag recommended, is this firmware you dumped meant to be used on 1042A, 1042 or both?

Also, my speed is capped at 90mb/s on this PCIe card, while NEC onboard ports go as high as 260mb/s (Cached reading) with the only HDD USB 3.0 I have ATM. Aida64 shows a link of x1 PCIe 2.0, same as NEC controller. Card is marketed as being x4, but not sure if it is just the PLX switch working as intended or not. Card is connected to the second x16 PCIe 2.0 meant for GPUs.

Thanks for sharing your findings!

@drapos

For your info, the 140124_10_10_04 firmware posted by Fernando in #85 and modified by me in #90 are both taken from our motherboards' (Asrock Z97 Extreme 6) on-board USB which is the ASM1042AE.

I have no idea whether this can be used on a 'non A' PCIe card but I suspect not ?????

Caveat emptor!
