Thunderbolt 3 Dock Gen 2 (40AN) Firmware Download

2019-07-09, 13:36 PM

Hello,

Where can the dock firmware be downloaded for the Thunderbolt 3 Gen 2 docking station (40AN)? It used to be available on the support page, but it no longer appears to be available on the website. Also I am not referring to the audio firmware update, but the dock firmware update.

 

Was the update removed for any reason in particular? We've been updating our docks using the firmware that was available on that page, so if it was removed due to a problem with the update it would be good to know.

 

For reference the 40AN dock firmware update used to be available here.

 

Thank you.

Any update on new firmware downloads for it?  The support page now lists a bunch of different firmware downloads, but none of them match the name of the product.  Did Lenovo already drop support for this dock?

The firmware update is still in the works, apparently a problem was found which prevents the dock team from releasing it, so they are working on another new version now.  Do you know what version of firmware is currently on your dock?

I used to find it here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds505188

 

Also, the lack of any Linux firmware release process is absurd. I would have hoped better from Lenovo.

@markuspeloquin Clearly you weren't around for the fiasco with the system firmwares for the x1 extremes.  They had not one, but two different firmware releases that bricked machines if you had particular basic bios options chosen (Discreet graphics for one and a supervisor password for the other).

Hi, 

not sure do ur team know that this gen2 dock is working very wired with Macbook pro that release after 2016.

 

I bought this thinkpad thunderbolt3 gen2 dock, but it really pissed me off , It could not charge the MBP pro at all even it is displaying charging, the Display function is not prefect sometimes the extended screen will have flash。
