My Steam Controller for some reason got bricked and it won't turn on.
Is there a way to unbrick a Steam Controller?
How can I do it?

To unbrick a SteamController, or to just change its firmware, plug it via USB while keeping the Right Trigger down.
A new USB device will appear (called "CRP DISABLD").
There, you will find a file:
You can replace it with a new (and working) firmware.
On Windows, you can copy the new file over the old one.
On a Linux box, instead, you have to open the terminal and give this command:
cd /the-path-to-CRP-DISABLD/ dd conv=nocreat,notrunc oflag=direct bs=512 \ if=~/my-working-firmware.bin of=./firmware.bin
Copying the file directly won't work under Linux!
