Some great news: the Jabra Speak devices are now supported using fwupd, and firmware files have just been uploaded to the LVFS.
You can now update the firmware just by clicking on a button in GNOME Software when using fwupd >= 1.0.0. Working with Jabra to add the required DFU quirks to fwupd and to get legal clearance to upload the firmware has been a pleasure. Their hardware is well designed and works really well in Linux (with the latest firmware), and they’ve been really helpful providing all the specifications we needed to get the firmware upgrade working reliably. We’ll hopefully be adding some different Jabra devices in the coming months to the LVFS too.
More vendor announcements coming soon too.

One thought on “Jabra joins the LVFS”
Thank you! Jabra Evolve Series would be a nice addition.
I have bought and recommended several Jabra products for the companies I have worked for. I am using Jabra products on Linux desktop every day.
