    I use Linux on my blade, firmware updates are a pain because you only provide a windows executable. It would be awesome if Razer like dell, hp, lenovo etc... would consider pushing their firmware to LVFS, so that we can flash from linux.

    Or
    - Provide firmware as a dos image.
    - Provide a mechanism to flash firmware inside the bios like a lot of vendors.

    As it stands I have 2 not great options at the moment -
    - Guess which AMI dos and linux utils are compatible with the controller on the mobo; potential bricking terroritory.
    - Replace my ssd, or replace my os as Windows cannot be run off a usb stick.

    C'mon Razer

    Yes I did notice that it was self extracting exe, I can't remember there being an efi executable, just the firmware and a intel me update + afuwin. I'll double check, but I don't recall seeing it.

    Hey Razer,
    LVFS support would be really great, especially since you walked down the productivity path, with products in the respective range (Razer Book 13 etc.)

    I agree, this would be nice.
