Hi grueneerle, it is at least possible to copy the SSDUtility. I used BalenaEtcher to make a bootable USB stick providing the KIOXIA SSDUtility v5.1.0014. The right click menu of the live USB session allows to open a terminal. You need to change /dev/sdc1 by the device that fits your Arch Linux partition.

$ sudo -i
# mkdir /mnt/archlinux
# mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/archlinux/
# mkdir /mnt/archlinux/usr/local/bin/kioxia_ssd_utility
# cp -ai /usr/local/bin/* /mnt/archlinux/usr/local/bin/kioxia_ssd_utility/

On Arch Linux running

$ sudo /usr/local/bin/kioxia_ssd_utility/SSDUtility

shows my new KIOXIA-EXCERIA SATA SSD, as well as my old TOSHIBA-TL100 and TOSHIBA-TR200 SSDs. Regards, Ralf

The download page at OCZ still lists version Version: 2.3.2963 as latest for linux. But the current version Version: 4.0.0012 is available as a bootable image which runs the utility on top of fedora/openbox. I'm wondering why there's no current 4.x version for linux as a direct download. Version 2.x does not resolve my RC-100 ssd correctly, whereas the 4.x version works fine. Maybe it's possible to extract the utility from the usb boot variant?

Just a heads up, a few seconds ago this inquiry was submitted successfully to Toshiba's technical support:


I'm using the latest available version of OCZ SSD Utillity for Linux, 2.3.2963, offered by your downloads.

I noticed an issue. On the download page the firmware for TR200 is provided by downloads for version 12.4 (April 11, 2018), 12.6 (December 21, 2018) and 13.3 (December 21, 2018). The firmware for TL100 is provided by downloads for version 10.3 (December 22, 2016), 10.4 (May 31, 2018) and 10.6 (December 21, 2018).

On my machine OCZ SSD Utillity for two TL100 (240 GB) shows that both are up to date at version 10.6, so no issue at all for a discontinued SSD, but there's an issue for at least one model of the current product line.

For two TR200 (240 GB) OCZ SSD Utillity claims that both are up to date at version 12.6, while the homepage already provides 13.3.

Now the bomb drops, for a new TR200 (480 GB), it's at version 15.2, OCZ SSD Utillity claims that an update is a available, but actually it offers a downgrade to 12.6.

Should users worry about it?

Regards, Ralf Mardorf"

If I should get a reply, I'll report back.

Since the update, i'm getting this error: No protocol specified QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display :0 /usr/bin/ocz-ssd-utility_polkit: line 6: 8414 Aborted (core dumped) pkexec --disable-internal-agent "/usr/bin/ocz-ssd-utility" "$@"

Package updated, thank you annoyingduck

I'm showing an update available to version 2.2.2645. Is it OK to update through the program's GUI, or should I wait until this package is updated? I assume wait, but I figured I'd ask before attempting to update via the program.

This package is going to be merged into the package ocz-ssd-utility
