Hi,

I have been reading all I could find on this topic.

So far it seems that :

-fwdc110p.bin works for the S

-fwdc124p.bin works for the S4i

-fwdc130p.bin works for the S5i.

Of course I have the S4!!. Anyone know of a S4 that has been recovered from the A90 error?

If so, please post this information for the S4 users among us. THANK YOU.

lraj

why don't you just try the 124 file.

how much difference can there be between the s4 and s4i ?

what's the worst that can happen, it won't work ? just like now.

good luck///

Many thanks Sifu for sending me the fwdc110p.bin file. I have followed the instructions to the letter, but on switching on with menu depressed I only get ver 1.01 appear. I have tried FW update in secret menu, but it displays file error.

In Version on secret menu mine shows

LD: 1.45

Do I need a different Bin file ?

Any Help Much Appreciated :sad:

hiya peepz, I have the same problem as andywellsand others here at the board. I think the problem is that it won't work for us, is that whe have another firmware version on our pentax optio S.

Because there is no other firmware version around, it could be an idea toEDIT the firmware bin file so the camera proceeds with the camera update.



When I perform the secret menu trick (HOLD MENU+FLASH+ON, MF, right, right, menu) and select VERSION INFO. It displays the following

KB341 Version

Firm:

03.09.18.20.17

1.01.06.00

Micon:

19

Loader:

03.08.02.17.25

I already read in this topic that the firmware where the update is succesfull on is 03.02.27.16.34.

Could you peepz that already updated their camera post this fulllist info here. If you have not updated your camera yet, and your info is different of the one posted here in the message, plz post also!

I think, if we now this information, we could edit the bin file, and perform a succesfully update on all the optio S cameras!

THX in advance



ciao

macho - you could be on to something here.

I was going to reply to andywells post and give him the lame advice to "make sure you follow the steps exactly". I'm sure he, you and others havedone that but still something is not working for you.



Wife is out using the camera (pleased to say)- when the camera is back home will writedown the details and share here.

I genuinely want to seeall of you peeps get your babies back...

cheers

sifu
