Just popped up on my XPS 13 updates:

“This update integrates the BIOSConnect feature into Dell SupportAssist OS Recovery. This feature connects the system to the Dell image server to download and recover the operating system.”

Umm… how about no, Dell, do not connect my BIOS to the Internet thank you very much.

Wtf is wrong with these people? *smh*


"customer convenience"

definitely not a "Back Door"


@ninja @thegibson Why would I format and install Linux over Linux? Or should I try to install Linux on the BIOS? ;P

Im on Linux too and never saw a dell bios update (also running XPS 13)

Was the update from within UEFI bios? 🤔

@ninja Take a look in GNOME Software if you have it. As I recall I had to mess around with some settings (of course) before I could install the BIOS updates.

@aral Oh I see! I'm using KDE neon, no wonder I didn't get it 😆​
