The FN mentions FW1166, but I think this shall be FW1167?

Just updated,
also there is a small typo inside the instruction:

/sbin/hdparm --fwdownload-mode3-max ./ FW1198_TT-Disabled_DLMC_BGA.bin --yes-i-know-what-i-am-doing --please-destroy-my-drive /dev/sda
/sbin/hdparm --fwdownload-mode3-max ./ FW1198_TT-Disabled_DLMC_BGA.bin --yes-i-know-what-i-am-doing --please-destroy-my-drive /dev/sdb

shall be

/sbin/hdparm --fwdownload-mode3-max ./FW1198_TT-Disabled_DLMC_BGA.bin --yes-i-know-what-i-am-doing --please-destroy-my-drive /dev/sda
/sbin/hdparm --fwdownload-mode3-max ./FW1198_TT-Disabled_DLMC_BGA.bin --yes-i-know-what-i-am-doing --please-destroy-my-drive /dev/sdb

without the starting space character in the filename, if the file is in the current directory.
