K5 FW Upgrade Path

Just having got my K5, the FW is currently 1.01 and now that there is an update, I'm assuming that I can skip the FW v 1.02 update since it is not on the website any longer. Any thoughts on this. Should I try and find the v1.02 update, then update to v1.03?

1.03 should contain all the updates the 1.02 had. You'll be fine just downloading 1.03.

Indeed, just go straight to v1.03 and you'll have all the firmware updates implemented in 1.01 and 1.02

Thanks for the replies. Should have just gone ahead and downloaded the update and read the Readme file. Updated and hoping to test soon!

I'm pretty sure there is a thread which will tell you how to do it but if you go to the link for it there is a file you can download with the firmware update that will give you instructions of what to do.
