KX firmware update query

Hi everyone.

Im quite new with dslrs and i recently bought a Pentax KX here in Taiwan (older stocks i guess because theyre on Sale).
Saw this firmware update and decided to update mine today. Its been updating Phase 2/2, says complete on the bottom part of the screen. But the upper left part still says Updating. What's going on? Does it really take this long to update this? It's been like 8minutes running this 2/2 updating already. Kinda worried this will eventually run out of battery and cause camera dysfunction or something.

Can anyone tell me if this is just normal to be waiting this long? What do I do now? Thanks Pentaxians.

If it's like my K-5, when it says complete and the sd access light flashes continually, it's done - I was confused at first as well!

Ditto. When it says complete on the screen you can turn off the camera and reformat the SD card. It's so rare to update the K-x firmware that many forget how to do it. Fortunately, those of us with K-5s are very practiced at updating the firmware
