    What's the latest firmware for INTEL SSDSA2M160G2GC = Intel X25-M 160GB SSD 2.5" 34nm (silver case)?

    I have revision = 2CV102M3 which I installed a couple of years ago! But on Intel's site, https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18363 there's a firmware update notice dated Nov 27, 2012. In the description it says "Intel® X25-M/X18-M SATA Solid-State Drive on 34nm (silver case) - updates to FW version 02M3"

    Sounds like FW version 02M3 is the same as 2CV102M3, are they the same??

    I am asking and being careful because I read that updating to 10.8.3 without the latest firmware makes the SSD un-bootable. It would be great if these sites warning me to update to the latest firmware would tell me exactly what the latest version is.

    I installed 2CV102M3 a couple of years ago, but why would Intel issue a notice on Nov 27, 2012 to update to FW version 02M3 if that's the same as 2CV102M3?

    I am a little confused, thanks for any help in this matter. :)

    I have version 2CV102M3 installed and I'm running 10.8.3 without issue.

    I don't know what Intel did in November but I haven't updated this SSD in a long time.

    I tried running the updater just to see if anything was available but it says my SSD is up to date.

    Ok, thanks! I am going to conclude that 02M3 is the same as 2CV102M3.

    Perhaps the Nov 2012 update notice really applied to their other SSDs and Intel simply included Intel X25-M in the notice so that all their SSDs were there even though the Intel X25-M had no updates.
