Just checked the SSDs and, annoyingly, they don't have any mention of the firmware revision. That would just be far too easy, I guess.
The files that I downloaded from Mushkin had a README file:
Before upgrading the firmware, be sure to back up important data
to a separate storage medium. Complete data loss may occur as a
result of the firmware update process!
1. After downloading the firmware installation package, extract
the zip file. If you are running Windows OS, browse to the
extracted folder and launch Mushkin_FieldUpdater.exe with admin-
istrative privileges. If SF_FieldUpdater is not launched with
administrative privileges, the Chronos SSD(s) will not be dis-
covered by the updater. If running Linux, launch
2. Once the updater application is launched, the Chronos SSD(s)
should be discovered in the window. Check the box beside the
drive you want to update. Select the button "Update Firmware" on
the bottom left and browse for the “MKN_FW_5-0-2.ffp” file.
3. The updater should find the fw file, click the fw file to
highlight it then click "Open" at the bottom right of the window.
You will then received a warning message. Click "Proceed" to
continue flashing the firmware.
4. The system may automatically reboot after the firmware update
is complete. If it does not reboot after 5 minutes. Shut the
machine down and restart.
Congratulations, your Chronos SSD is now updated!
That's how I thought it was supposed to be done?
