md5 or sha1 checksum of fwdc162b.bin?

When my K10D gets here in a few days, I want to upgrade it to the 1.30 firmware.

I'm using Linux, and I can unpack the files from the self-extracting archive using LHA -- I get readme.txt and fwdc162b.bin decoded apparently successfully. Before I go and brick my camera, though, it'd be nice to have some verification that the .bin file I unpacked is in fact the right one. I get:

$ md5sum fwdc162b.bin readme.txt
2afa718d2aadbf283a54d123c9178a6b fwdc162b.bin
88a666c31eb5c7cf3b0ca2095307c38f readme.txt


$ sha1sum fwdc162b.bin readme.txt
177db82b63efd1a7b7f693b87e84f53de80c579b fwdc162b.bin
124e85ea4043900796b632c68661a3e15b6508bd readme.txt

Could someone who has successfully used this firmware update confirm the checksum of the bin file you used? Thanks!

I've checked FWDC162B.BIN I have against hash values you provided and it was OK.

Cool, thanks. I figured it probably was okay but I didn't want to take the small risk that there had been some linefeed conversion in the binary or anything.
