Liddat might as well i try myself? :bsmilie:

My guess is that it probably wont install as typically it would check the cam and firmware version before user press the ok button :dunno:
There's a way to by pass that check sum n firmware version... who wanna try? :)

i do the kiasu stuff, whatever is available, i go and update. but did not know what is actually had been improved.
"Improved stability for general performance" - too broad for me to understand.

Anyone observe any difference ?

Hmmm if the hardware is identical... why not?
For most electronic products usually its not possible even if the mcu is/are same there is almost nil possibility that all the hardware resources can remain same. Onlyone I/o assignment is different and thats it. U need a new different f/w or may need to configure the I/o accordingly

Having experience of around 10 years in embedded system development I can say that it would be really stupid to try that.
Hehe, at work I do it all the time, if the MCUs are the same ;). The worst is to burn in the correct firmware again.

Of course if you messed up the boot loader, you'd have big problem :D
