SanDisk SSD PLUS 1000GB firmware for linux user

[ Edited ]

I recently bought a SanDisk SSD PLUS 1000GB off amazon, but only run linux at home, and have no access to a Windows machine to run Sandisk Dashboard, and it does not detect the SSD under Wine. I've posted the smartctl output below. It claims to be running firmware version UH4400RL, I dont know if this is the latest, but looking around, saw that someone had a 120GB drive running UE4500RL with a significant boost in speed. I dont want to flash a firmware for a different capacity, but cant find a firmware file posted for this model. If anyone could supply such a link, it would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you!
