Update: I've taken a risk and upgraded my adapter to v173.01.00.01. Everything works perfectly! Original firmware was 108.x.x.x or something similar. P.S. At least it works for me. I don't have any official information about the compatibility.
Hello. I've received a SATA to USB 3.0 adapter from the Pine64 store. The problem is than the adapter is not fully SAT compliant, so hdparm doesn't work with it. It is described better in this post. And there's an updated firmware for the JMS578 chip which fixes this issue. However, it was made for another device (Odroid HC1), not the device I have. Is it safe to use this firmware in my adapter? Or maybe there's even more fresh firmware exists for JMS578 chips?
