  1. Hi,
    I’ve just checked the firmware on my x-t1 and it’s v4.00. Do I need to download v4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 or can I jump straight to 4.31?

  2. Thanks for this article. Only just got round to installing the firmware upgrades.

    Any ideas on the x-pro1 locking up after taking shots? Seems to take it’s time to reset with the light on the back flashing orange/green while the waiting cursor is spinning in the viewfinder. Talking about the best part of a minute.
