WD60EFAX Failed to Resilver

Try to use WD60EFAX as single drive NAS. However, after issuing zpool replace, it failed to resilver. It seems to do with SMR. Tried to contact WD, they refused to replace it with CMR model. I am stuck with an unusable drive, ironically which is sold for NAS purpose.

Before I totally give up, is there any firmware update that can fix this issue?
