Questions

Is this save? Can this hurt my camera?
No, it will most likely not hurt your camera. This should be all save. Be aware of the risks, but don’t be scared. Nothing is hacked here. Nothing modified. You wont loose your warranty if anything goes wrong.

Is this allowed?
Yes it is. 100%.

Will I loose my warranty?
No you will not. But maybe you want to wait for any claims after the firmware if officially released to be save.

Is this an official update?
Yes it’s 100% official and made by Olympus itself. This firmware is not an development firmware, hacked or manipulated in any way. It is the original file Olympus will release at Photokina 2014.

(we found each the firmware on ourselves)

Will Olympus know that I flashed it?
If you tell them or send them the camera before the firmware is released: Yes. Otherwise: No.
Even if you brick/break your camera with a firmware update, they will handle it as a normal defect.

I don’t like version 2.0 Can I downgrade?
Yes you can. Download the 1.4 firmware inside the application and flash it.
