Re: OCZ Vertex 2 SSD firmware

On account of a failing power supply, my trusty Patriot Inferno 120GB (SF-1222 based) went into panic mode after about 20 random abrupt shutdowns.
Thanks to KBDE's comment about shorting SDA to VCC on the EEPROM, I used an SOIC-8 clip with a jumper between pins 5 and 8 for a seamless no-solder recovery using MP-Tool.

As I'm sure others have noticed, the licence file used in this recovery method is meant for "asiacom", which afterwards causes the OCZ, Patriot, etc. firmware update utilities to fail.
My drive now seems stuck at revision level 346A13F0 instead of 363A13F0, which was the latest released firmware from Patriot Memory.
It's working, so I'm happy, but it would be nice to know if there's a way to apply v3.6.3 or even v3.7.0 (the latest from OCZ AFAIK).

I'm sure the answer is buried in there somewhere!
