February 2014's Surface Pro Firmware for Deployment Now Available

For those waiting for the firmware and driver pack from the February 2014 updates for the Surface Pro, the bits are now available for download.

February was actually a pretty significant update, and I can attest that there has been definite improvement. If you've delayed updating your company's own Surface army, this update is well worth it. Here's what was updated this month for Surface Pro's running Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1:

  • Surface Pro Embedded Controller Firmware (v9.00.50) to resolve behavior where the Surface would reset when waking from sleep.
  • Surface Pro System Aggregator Firmware (v2.84.0150)
    • Resolves issue where Surface would reset upon repeated Surface Cover attach/detach.
    • Resolves issue where On Screen Keyboard would unexpectedly pop-up even though Surface Cover is attached.
    • Resolves issue where Surface Cover is not detected after wake up from sleep.
  • Surface Pro UEFI (v1.6.50) improves experience when using a Surface Cover on your Surface Pro.

The February files are downloadable from here: Surface Pro firmware and driver pack

The only Surface model not to receive updates in February was the original Surface RT, but the downloads for the other models are just not available yet.  Stay tuned.

Deployable firmware and driver packs enabled Enterprise customers to deploy the updates according to patching policies and also to construct computer images for building new Surface hardware according to business-specific specifications.
