Old K30 firmwares please share

Hi,

I want to downgrade from firmware 1.05 to 1.01, does anyone still have a copy of it? Please share.

Many thanks

I don't think you can downgrade, and even if you could it probably won't do you any good (fortunately) it's generally the case that the newer the firmware the better off you are.

Apparently it is possible, according to this post.

Perhaps he downgraded by buying another camera Unless you figure out how to hack the firmware it isn't going to let you go to a lower version.

im at 1.00 no issues to report, although, i have not fully tested every feature on the camera yet, However there is a little voice in my head saying "don't screw with the firmware!"

There are hidden updates that are never announced other than the "official" ones. It is best to update as it solves some issues that are known.

Unless you went to 1.03 of which Ricoh said:
"Changes to V1.04


• Corrected – Unstable performance may rarely occur in firmware version 1.03.
*Contents of [Version 1.03] and earlier version will be also updated.
*If you have already updated to Version1.03, we are very sorry for this inconvenience. "

Also, here's a post from a k-30 user made on a DPreview forum about a week ago.
"Emmm...
I just updated K-30 from 0.00 stright to 0.05 and... I am unhappy. Before update I had spot on autofocus in low light, now it is -10 for all lenses like FA50/1.4 fa 43, Fa 77 etc.
Damn.
Can I downgrade?
"
Though he got the firmware versions incorrect, he is obviously dissatisfied with the results.

Not everyone gets that error. My buddies and I in Singapore have not faced any issues with the 1.05 firmware.
