Hey, I only have 1.11! I'm behind.

According to Pentax, 1.12 applies to SDXC memory cards, so you could skip it if you're only using SDHC.

Version 1.12
• Improved recording reliability when using SDXC memory cards.

Here's a place to get it and instructions on how to do it right:

I wish I had skipped it, cost me $300.00 and two trips to C.R.I.S. to get the camera back up and running. (Something got corrupted in the process and bricked the K-7).

I'm with Ex-Finn on that one. I just bricked a beautiful *ist DL trying to upgrade the firmware. C.R.I.S. ballparked the repair cost at around $250 so I bought a not quite as pristine, but still very nice Samsung GX-1L (*ist DL2 clone) for a little over half that much. The bottom line here is if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it!
