A Question about Using Firmware

Do i need to download the Firmware Updater to make the firmware i want to download work, or can i go straight to the particular firmware i want and download it-would that work?

If you follow the instructions in the firmware update post, it will manually install the firmware. No Updater needed.

No all you need to do is download the firmware and put it at the root of your device…Then you unplug the device and boot it up as normal
