Samsung Releases 990 PRO Firmware Update to Address SSD Health Degradation Issues

I have several decades of software hacking and assembly coding background. Maybe I could join a project, but so far the firmware is too crippled for me . LG tv’s are running linux too, I’d just be too scared to play around with my 40 odd inch tv just for streaming medai when my ps3’s plugged in and running to a media server too. Of course if, by some stroke of luck, they used a common video chip set, it could all just fall into place. Having put off buying a new TV – I would then have to seriously consider a Samsung.

If the power is cut off, when the power comes back on or you reconnect the power cord, turn on the Soundbar, and then reconnect it to the Internet. The Samsung Q990B supports lots of audio formats via ARC. It plays back common surround sound formats like Dolby Digital as well as lossless and object-based formats like Dolby Atmos. You can even press the ‘i’ button on the remote to confirm which format is playing.

  • Is leading up the efforts to reverse engineer Samsung TV firmware with a project called SamyGo.
  • Once it is completed, click on Done and your mobile will restart and function normally.
  • You can cancel it at any moment during this period.
  • In the case of a model that can play USB files, it can be updated only when changing to the USB source.

You may now turn on the TV by pressing the Power button once more. Once the file has completed downloading, find it and unzip it. Apart from being a consistent heavyweight king in smartphone contests, Samsung also has a significant presence in the TV or Smart TV industry, as well as other intriguing areas. I couldn’t find the release notes to figure out what was changed. Unauthorized reproduction, in whole or in part is strictly prohibited.

The G.SKILL SSD Firmware will be updated in a few seconds. The system will automatically reboot after the update is finished. SSDs are quite affordable now than what they used to be a year ago. Also, new Solid-state drives come with higher endurance of as much as 500TBW+ which is like writing 100GB every day for the next 10 years and still can write 50GB per day for more 10 years. One of the reasons I want to update firmware is because this PC was bought used. Since I do not know what has been done with it in the past, want to be 100% sure firmware is intact .

In case, same doesn’t happen with you, make sure that you’ve installed drivers of that Samsung’s device. The device drivers help laptop or desktop to detect connected device properly. Otherwise, Odin will not be able to connect or communicate with the device. Your account also allows you to connect with HP support faster, access a personal dashboard to manage all of your devices in one place, view warranty information, case status and more. Before you use Odin, you’ll need to find and download Odin.

Consumer SSDs do this caching even though they do not have power loss protection capacitors to ensure that data cached in volatile SRAM will be flushed to the flash in an emergency. I have the same problem too – I have a SN750 2Tb drive, getting 1gb write speeds. Before my 2Tb drive I had a 1Tb SN750 – that had no problem reading and writting at 3gb+.


The latest generation of V-NAND technology provides outstanding performance and improved energy efficiency. In addition, the 970 EVO Plus features optimized firmware, the proven Phoenix controller and intelligent TurboWrite technology for accelerating write operations. Samsung advertises the 970 Evo Plus 500GB with sequential read speeds of up to 3,500 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 3,200 MB/s. Random read speeds are rated for up to 620K IOPS and 560K IOPS for random write speeds. The new 96-layer NAND along with firmware optimizations has significantly improved sequential write speeds and random write speeds. With the release of the 970 Evo Plus, Samsung continues to dominate the industry with the fastest SSDs on the market.

Rosetta 2 isn’t emulation it’s x86 to Aarch64 translation. So if an Intel Mac can update the drive without resorting to Windows then an Apple silicon Mac should also work unless the Intel Mac was using a kernel extension (which doesn’t work under Rosetta). I have an external drive enclosure with a 2TB 980 Pro connected to a M1 MacBook Air.
