Im trying to search thru HP's site to see if any new firmware is avalilable but they simply dont list the firmwares that are avaliable!

Did you go deeper into the OS selections? I do agree the HP site has always been a little difficult to navigate

Tried this but I cant find any way to just search and apply the latest firmware.

 

Just faster asking:

 

System ROM J06 08/24/2013

Backup System ROM 08/24/2013

iLO Firmware Version 1.30 Jul 18 2013

--though today I'm seeing the same downloads listed, including the "BIOS - System Rom" section (still J06 btw), whether or not I enter my "in-warranty" server serial # first

"Why is HP making this change?

This change brings HP into alignment with current industry practices for HP firmware updates and SPP distribution"

 

My response to this - horse manure.  Dell PowerEdge servers have complete access to full firmware updates.

JUNK! So, basically cannot update my firmware at all now?

 

And tried that SUM update thing... garbage.... Should be like other systems. Get the firmware file and flash it in DOS.

 

Nice machine, but very disappointed in HPs stupid ways lately.
