    It has been a total fail for me.

    I tried it on two DELL XPS 13 laptops, couldn't find even a single firmware for all that hardware, then I tried it on several Fedora desktops running typical Intel i7 hardware, again nothing to update, even tried it on a gaming desktop with all sorts of bells and whistles (samsung SSD, samsung NVME, integrated water cooling, radeon graphics card etc), again nothing found, no firmware.

    Has anyone actually found something to update?
    What XPS 13 models? I have a DELL XPS 13 9360 and 9310 (2020). I have update the uefi on both using LVFS/fwupd. On the 9360, I've also updated the thunderbolt controller's firmware.

    I've updated my Logitech Unifying Receiver, a Dell thunderbolt Dock and the motherboard on my thinkpad laptop using fwupd. However, I've got loads og components without support

    I don't use FreeBSD (been over a decade since I last tried it) but it is really cool that firmware updating is supported by more open source operating systems. Hopefully it will now also be easy to port this to other BSDs.
