Firmware update

Ooops I think I sent this to the wrong thread before.  Sorry for any
inconvenience.

I seem to remember that the signed builds would automatically update the
firmware on machines when using the game-key-release update method,
assuming that one had the power cord plugged in.

Using the current 852 build, the firmware on the XO 1.5 is not being
upgraded
from q3a48 to q3a50 (which is the recommended fw listed on the wiki).  Not a
big deal, as one can flash using the X-release boot method to the Ok prompt,
and then using
the USB stick where the .dot-rom file sits in the /boot directory.

And, I dont expect it to be there using the 35x fs-update method, but I was
just wondering whether this auto-firmware update feature for
'game-key-release' installs of signed builds is now a thing of the past, a
figment of my iimagination, bad memory, or
whether the fw in the pack is maybe still q3a48.

Cheers,

KG
