I'm in the same boat, after firmware update my Win7 x64 won't boot, Vista x64 (dual boot) reports ssd needs to be checked for errors. When I tried to run the optimizer in Vista it says I need at least 1TB free on the ssd. HDTune reports 2% red damaged sectors. In the Intel SSD optimizer, when I try to run full diagnostic scan the read scan fails instantly and in red it says contact an intel representative. I think it's RMA time....
is it maybe possible to downgrade the firmware to the previous version? id do anything to get the SSDs working again.

From what I've read it is not possible to revert to a previous firmware (seems like some people have tried it). I wish Intel would just announce something beyond "we are taking it seriously and looking into the issue". So far my experience with Intel support has been dismal at best. I sent an email to Intel support when I had issues two weeks ago regarding getting their firmware update software to recognize my X-25M G2 and STILL have not got a reply
