Updated to Firmware 1.12 - Sigma EF-630 always underexposing (unusable results)

I just updated to fw 1.12 and now my Sigma EF-630 flash that was working like a charm with 1.11 is giving me 10 out of 10 unusable photos, always underexposed (black actually). Is there any way I can downgrade?

No, there isn't a way to downgrade. More likely than not, however, chances are that the underexposure is being caused by something else. It could be that you accidentally changed a setting, or the upgrade reset a setting.

You were right Adam, thank you. I feel like an idiot now, lol. Everything's back to normal. And this Sigma Flash is really a great alternative fo Pentax's top Flash offering.
