    What I actually did was search for said hex-values using HxD.

    Both F40 and F80 models firmware starts and ends with the said values.

    Does anybody know, how to change RAID level on this? I'd like to run RAID10 instead of RAID0. Or may be change to IT mode?

    Please help me to flash back F80 firmware.

    I tried to directly crossflash using Sun firmware, but i gave me an error.
    Firmware Image has a Valid Checksum.
    Firmware Image compatible with Controller.
    Valid NVDATA Image found.
    ERROR: Cannot downgrade NVDATA version 0xd430000 to 0xa200003.
    Firmware Image Validation Failed!

    I tried to follow Mr. Kasilag's guide, but instead used Sun firmware. I found that in my extracted SBR PID and VID are from Sun:
    SubsysVID = 0x108e
    SubsysPID = 0x050a

    I have extracted firmware from Sun *.bin file and tried to flash it, but again got an error:
    Seagate WarpDrive Management Utility: Invalid package signature.

    I tried to extract FW from Nytro package - OK, I got the same SHA1 checksum as Mr. Kasilag and tried to flash, but again I got an error about signature.

    Any body know a way to flash from Nytro to F80?

    Thanks to Kenneth Kasilag, I was able to flash my F80 back to Sun firmware!

    Steps:
    In order, with lsiutil:
    Option 33 - Erase non volatile adapter storage (Option 33 is hidden from the list, just input 33)
    Option 3 - Flash
    Option 1 - NVRAM
    Option 8 - Persistent Manufacturing Pages
    then
    Option 2 - Download Firmware (Update the FLASH) - use the extracted firmware.

    Then:
    Use lsirec 0000:0X:00.0 writesbr sbr_new.bin (In my case I wrote the same SBR as I backed up when device was with Nytro firmware, because IDs was the same as Sun)
    Reboot
    Flash with ddcli Sun firmware and format drive
