Firmware Upgrade For My K-1, My K-3, And My K-5

Dear Sirs and Madams - I have upgraded the firmware on my K-5 and all went perfectly. I want to upgrade my K-3 and my K-1 . However I did read some threads on Pentax Forum where people indicated that they made their camera unusable by doing an upgrade.... something went wrong. How concerned should I be ? If my Firmware upgrade goes wrong, can my camera be repaired ? Thank You for your assistance.

If you have a healthy battery, fully charged, and you follow the instructions as posted, then you should be fine. There's always a very minor chance of failure, but it is, by all accounts, a very small risk.
