Firmware upgrade for Linux user

Two months ago I bought and installed a SanDisk Ultra 3D 500 GB SATA3 disk for my new laptop. I have no problems, but I want to know how can I do a firmware upgrade on this disk (when needed) since I am not using Windows. I have only Ubuntu 19.04 installed on my laptop.


  1. What is the current latest available firmware for this disk? My system reports X61170RL as the installed firmware on this disk. Is it the latest? I haven’t found any information about the latest firmware of this disk on website.

  2. Is it possible to do an update on a system which does not run Windows? How?
