    Check your SD card, there is a log file to show you whether the update is successful?

    What color is the camera led? If it's green & not blinking, then fw update is complete.

    dang it! the SD card says SUCCESS!! I was waiting for the green lights. I guess the sound change is the important thing. the cam led was green; also, I didn't know to look there.
    thnaks guys

    It does seem it can take longer than some earlier ones though, I'd allow a good 30 minutes.
    There is a worrying long pause when it looks almost dead which lasts several minutes.

    I think my update was right at 25 minutes,I let it go about an extra 10 minutes just for good measure.
