Wow, I'm amazed they've actually released a fix for this! I hope it works.
Has anyone been able to get it to apply? I tried both the 64 and 32 bit ISOs, but they both fail with a generic "Firmware Update failed" message after selecting the device.

Good news everyone!
I pulled the drive into my desktop, and the firmware update was able to apply there. Perhaps there's something with Mac EFI that they didn't test for.
Been running the new firmware for a day, and waking from sleep is near instant - faster than I can open the lid. Hopefully this update fixes the issues others were having on non-Apple hardware too!

That is excellent news! Currently the update is bizarrely marked as for MACs only; so I have raised a ticket to find out when Windoze will be supported. Anyway, thanks for updating us.

I called Sandisk yesterday and they claimed that the firmware works perfect with their test machines. I am sending my SSD in (AGAIN) for "testing" and they are sending me a replacement. I told them that there are multiple people on the forums having the same problem, as they were not aware of the issue.
I am greatful for the firmware update, but this release has been bad.

As I mentioned above, I couldn't apply the update from my early 2011 MacBook Pro 15", but it did apply using another standard PC computer. I don't know of any workarounds if you don't have any other computers to try with.

Mine seems sto be a serial number issue. It says the bootable disc was created with a different serial to the actual SSD, so the update fails. When it asks me if I'd like to update another drive, it says 'there is no ssd on this sytem with the model number' blah blah blah
Surely Sandisk can't have fixed the serial on the update software?
