For me, the "silent" update fixed the phenomenon of the camera failing to shoot when built-in flash is up, LiveView is engaged, an SDM lens is attached, and "shutter release while charging" option is disabled. Maybe there are other changes as well, but this is the only one I noticed.
strange thing, but it doesn't work on my K-5. Then again, I only tested this after reading, so I wouldn't use it in real life. Looking for the update.

Can you install the silent 1.02 over the previous 1.02
Yes, I did just that.

The fact Pentax does silent updates tells us something about how Pentax perceives us.

By us I mean the active Pentaxian internet community. We are the only who will take notice and so they must do it for us without non Pentaxians ever take notice at all. Also, it may be a kind if beta test method to find out if a fix actually worked.

I think that's as much official confirmation Pentax is listening as we will ever receive :ugh:
