Updated two bodies. No issues. It does not reset settings. It says it will take 12 min and that's about right.

I only ever bricked a body once so I'm very careful. Put the camera on a solid surface, be sure the cable is secure and can't fall out, start it running .... and leave the room until it's done :)

Agree, updated mine 2 nights ago in prep for a sporting event. But emphasis is on a stable surface so the cable remains attached. I was freaking out, sort of, that I would have to reset all my values for indoor, low light sports. But nothing changed.

For the first time ever, I was able to update Sony firmware using a Mac. In one go. Whoopee!

I was having issues with A1 failing to trigger Godox flashes (via Godox radio trigger) with e-shutter (x-Sync 1/200) after operating it with m-shutter at x-sync of 1/400.

After having removed battery both from A1 and Godox flashes and Triggers failed to restore e-shutter x-sync I tried to do this update and it solved.

Not shure if it was a bug solved by the new firmware or if the problem cleared itself from the A1 restart that the upgrade forced/caused.
