yup :) just tried that, edited my previous post with the results of the command.
I see, it is rather interesting. I suppose there is something it does not like about the SBR.

Did you have J4 shorted or not, when running completedowload command? If it was shorted try with J4 open.

Tried with jumper on and off, no difference in result, fails with ERRCD 33110 on SBR

Can you confirm that you got file 9440-8i_nopad.rom from Lenovo update package and not from LSI's website.


I tried writing MR firmware to 530-8i card that is already running IT firmware using
Code:
storcli /c0 download completeflash fileone=vtboot01.rom filetwo=9440-8i_nopad.rom
and as expected card became inoperable, but at least the writing process did not fail as it did for you.

I was then able to recover the card back to working IT mode by writing flash backup that I had using this command:
Code:
storcli /c0 download completeflash fileone=vtboot01.rom filetwo=adp_ctl_dump_flash.rom
Can you try this second command and see if that works for you or not. I uploaded backup file here: IT firmware backup

Folks, I just bought PERC H740p and trying to crossflash it to Broadcom 9460-8i
Could someone please help me with the StorCLI command to change the VID stuff so I can flash the firmware: 9460-8i_nopad.rom
I did this long time ago for the older cards like IBM ServeRAID, but completely forgot now :)


I see the following for the Braodcom card 9460-8i card:

VID: 1000 DID: 0016 SUB_IDS: 94611000

Thanks in advance
Labo

Just join the ride to flashing 530-8i into IT mode, but the card can't detect by storcli.... via Ubuntu or CentOS... any clue why?

I suggest your make usb boot disk for UEFI shell , and run it in newer MB support UEFI shell . and user storcli.efi to run update FW operation.
I just update lenovo 430-8i card to LSI 9400 IT FW P14 , it work with Asus Z370-E MB.
