Samyang 45 on crop

Hope this is the right place for a question. I'm using Sony 50mm f1.8 FE on A7III and it's working well. This summer i take the lens on a vacation and bring my old A6000. But this combo was actually horrible, AF was a torture, forward - back - forward...
So i wander how would Samyang 45mm f1.8 act with AF on A6000?

Have you updated the firmware on the lens?  It had terrible AF until a couple of firmware updates.

The Samyang has a linear stepper motor. It hunts quicker than the DC motor in the FE 1.8/50.

I would love to but i can't find any firmware online. Some help about that?
