For years now I am telling you not to ask for ThinOS firmware in the forum.
For years now I had a lot of discussions with customer who hadn’t purchased ThinOS maintenance but need a newer firmware to get a certain fix or feature.
For years now I had uncountable discussions with partner who did not know about ThinOS maintenance and therefore, didn’t offer it to their customer.
These times are gone! Finally! Hurray!!
Beginning with the release of the new Wyse 5070, Dell has stopped selling ThinOS maintenance. Since June this year you were able to download the firmware for the 5070 from the Dell eSupport page. The Wyse 3040 followed that starting beginning of August. Most other devices will follow until the end of the year. See below for details.
This means, that from December 2018 onwards we will no longer have the discussion about giving away ThinOS firmware. Of course, this will make our all lives so much easier.
Quote from Dell:
You will simply have to access Dell eSupport page and enter your Asset tag or choose Wyse 3040 thin client from the product list in order to have access to ThinOS firmware downloads, user manuals and technical documentation, warranty details and configuration information – all from one place. Access to all remaining client models will be posted to the eSupport site over the remainder of the year, with the process completing by December 6th, 2018.
Link to the Dell eSupport site is http://www.dell.com/support

What does this mean for older HW? like the 5010 AKA D10DP
Check above. 5010 is in the list.
So from September on your will find the firmware on eSupport.
Does this mean I can install ThinOS on a Wyse 3040 ThinLinux machine?
No. You can „just“ download the latest ThinOS version to be used on a ThinOS device.
Thank you for this information, very helpful
