Another Firmware for JMS567 supporting SMART and HDD serial

Post by BetterFirmware »

Thanks for this article https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-xu4/soft ... _fw_update
I've updated the firmware, but my drive still showed an imaginary serialnumber.
Then I've seen that I had another USB disc with JMS567 supporting UAS, SMART via sudo smartctl -H /dev/sdc
Other firmware gave a warning that smartstatus is only calculated from attributes.
Real Serialnumber output via sudo /sbin/hdparm -I /dev/sdc 2>/dev/null | grep 'Serial Number'
Also hdparm -C is supported showing Powerstate so whether device is spinning or not. EDIT: You see only when it is spinning. When it is not spinning, drive is woken up. That shouldn't be. With other enclosures it works. So feature is only partly supported in this FW version.

I've uploaded the Firmware. Would be great if you could also place it here https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-xu4/soft ... _fw_update

Thank you for sharing a new firmware.
Can I ask you where you could get the firmware?
When we contacted Jmicron last June, there was no new firmware release.

I've downloaded the firmware from a Sharkoon Swift Case Pro USB 3.0 HDD enclosure. https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00XPUBMHW/
Since it also shows Version v173.1.0.2 it is not necessarily another firmware internal, but it is definitively provisioned different.

This post https://www.computerbase.de/forum/threa ... t-22059052 describes a very similar procedure for Asmedia USB3.0/S-ATA converters. With the Tool provided by ASMedia you can provision the firmware in different ways like showing the correct SN or a fake increasing serialnumber. Idle timer can also be set.

It looks like that this firmware version is provisionied differently by a smiliar manufacturer tool. And this provision is much better provisioned then the other firmwares so far.

@odroid:
Can you post and link on https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-xu4/soft ... _fw_update to this firmware here? Your wiki article is linked to on a lot of other pages. This helps also other people getting a firmware with supports getting smart self check attributes from drive.
