There usually is an option to revert a firmware - hopefully someone more knowledgeable can jump in at this point, I don't know how to revert a firmware off my head..

Updating firmware isn't going to make anything worse, provided you follow the instructions exactly, and most importantly, have a fully charged battery before starting. It's also not going to change the sound of the mirror/shutter if it's functioning as intended (but you may see other benefits). From what you described about adjusting the lens in the mount, I think you need to clean the contacts on both lens and camera. A bit of dirt on them can cause a lot of issues, and it's pretty common. A dry, clean, lint free cloth will do it. Just polish them up and see if it helps.

My K-R used to make that high pitched sound when I first got it but it doesn't do that anymore. Now it just sounds like a regular click.
