Myth confirmed! On my camera it worked exactly as you described. Put firmware on the card (root folder), renamed the file, changed UPGRADE_FW to Y, status button, format, works.

Just did a little test vid in 60 FPS and it's all good!

Now I get all the newer firmware features without losing my beloved 60 fps.

Dude you should be an honorary lifetime member!
