Just wanted to see who else has updated firmware on their Vertex 3. THIS thread has all the info you need to do it. And as of now it can be done on the 2011 MBP with the Linux system he provides. I couldn't get it to work with a flash drive so I went with burning the ISO to a DVD. I actually couldn't do it on my 2011 MBP because I have an optibay HDD and I don't believe the disc is bootable off an external optical drive. So I put the Vertex 3 into my 2008 aluminum Macbook and did the update on that. It updated the drive successfully to version 2.08. I was a little confused because I thought 2.09 was the current version, but oh well. We'll see if this update fixes the very rare hang-on-wakeup issues I've had. Anyone else?
