BIOS 1.4.12 for XPS 9350

Hi

is it safe to upgrade to BIOS 1.4.12 (from December 20,2016) on an XPS 13 DE (9350) ?

Has anyone already tested ?

I have installed it, and have encountered no problems.  I'm running Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon on my XPS 13 9350.

Everything went great with me! Always follow the instructions carefully like any BIOS upgrade and you should be good too.

Where can I find the instructions ?

Thx !

Ubuntu 17.10 - XPS 13 9360 - BIOS version: 2.5.0

Run the BIOS update utility from DOS environment (Non-Windows users)

NOTE: You will need to provide a bootable DOS diskette. This executable file does not
create the DOS system files.
1. Copy the file XPS_9360_XXX.exe to a bootable USB key.
2. Boot from the USB key to the DOS prompt.
3. Run the file by typing Y:\ XPS_9360_XXX.exe (where Y is the drive letter
where the executable is located).

Or  XPS_9350_XXX.exe in your case.

How do I edit a post?!

There's a little arrow pointing down next to the title but that does nothing :/

btw there is no need to boot via usb stick for the bios update.

simply copy the exe file to your /boot/efi folder on your internal hd.
the reboot and press f12. you should find an option for flashing bios there.
then select your exe file and bios will be flashed.

Neat, is this documented somewhere?

you will not find it in the support section where you can get the bios from.
cant remember where i got the info from. but i did every bios update this way since
i was too lazy to prepare a usb stick :)

thanks ! I just did the upgrade using the /boot/efi way (which was how I did also the previous upgrades)

and it went smoothly.
