A little over a month after retracting its second faulty firmware for its otherwise breakthrough 34 nm X25-M G2 solid state drives (SSD), Intel released the 2CV102HD firmware update, this one hopefully being free of any critical bugs. The firmware update works for both the X25-M and X18-M SSDs. The firmware adds TRIM capability to the SSDs, which works to minimize data fragmentation at the hardware-level on systems with Windows 7. The 2CV102HD firmware update can be found here.
