So I have X319_S16437T6ATE (the 7.68 TB drive) running NA53. Anyone know if this will suffer from the 32k or 40k power-on hours death? The drive is listed as eligible for NA54, but I'm having trouble finding that LOD.

For my PM1633a's:

smartctl lists them as NETAPP x357's with NA51.

I have the NA54.lod (3.98MB) from the all.zip here. Also have the MZ7LM240HCGR-00003_3F3Q.bin (1MB) from the huge firmware list from this forum TFW.zip (MEGA).

Any ideas which to use? Is flashing to NA54 the easiest fix, keeping it within the Netapp line, or flip it to Samsung from the perhaps-unverified-source TFW.zip?

If NA51 is working for you, I'd just go with NA54 and call it a day. Cross flashing should work, but there's a small chance it might brick the drive or cause data loss due to the change over.
