Default Seagate fixes broken firmware fix

Last week Seagate released a firmware fix for certain for their 7200.11 line-up, unfortunately this firmware did more bad than good and many users ended up with an unusable HDD.

On 22/01 Seagate released a new firmware which supposedly fixes the original issues and the broken first release.

The version is still "SD1A" but many users report that they were able to recover their previously broken drive to working operation, so make sure to give it a try if you are the unlucky owner of 7200.11 drive which was affected.
After bricking my drive with the faulty SD1A, it came back to life with the currently published firmware. And so far it seems to work like a charm.

i flashed both my 500 gig hds and they are working well now...even my bricked one that died on me months ago is back up and working!! my other was part of my raid and it was fine as data issues or anthing
