As promised HP Inc. has released a firmware update that unblocks use of non-HP, third-party ink cartridges. In September, thousands of users reported that they could no longer use non-HP ink cartridges with various HP Officejet printers and All-in-Ones, after a routine HP security upgrade over the Internet to their printers. HP subsequently apologized for the update, and said a firmware update that unblocks the use of non-HP ink cartridges would shortly be available. The firmware update is available here.

The update is available for select HP Officejet, Officejet Pro, and Officejet ProX models.
