Hi all,


Any chance anyone has experience with flashing an LSI 9266-8i to being a JBOD card?

I have googled until I've just about worn the letters off my keyboard and cannot find a straightforward answer.


Thanks in advance fora any directions!

Cool! Thanks @Michael_P, I will give it a read.

I realize this card was really not meant to be in IT mode, but... 🔨

If it was easy, everyone would do it :P

Sorry no. I fooled with it for a few hours and decided "my time" was worth more than the cost of an approved card.



I bought a couple of these "Broadcom / LSI SAS3008 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-3 (rev 02)"

from this guy on ebay. I think he is shipping them in from China and reselling them here in the U.S. Regardless, they are working great and I have worked them hard on a few occasions.

Here is the link to the cards: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-LSI-SAS-9311-8I-PCI-E-TO-12Gb-s-SAS-Host-Bus-Adapter-3-0-SATA-SAS-US-seller/132573448468?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


If your drives can handle the speed, it is fast!


I know there are some instructions earlier in the post that may help, but i just did not have the patience at the time and did not want to brick it.


Good luck!
