    Updates can make you need to buy a new radio.

    The original firmware that is in it, Is made for the exact hardware that is in it.

    It gets hard fixing hardware with firmware. You can end up with Half Fast.

    You can always go back if the rig works at all. Considering all the IC7300 sold their isn't much to worry about.

    In the photo posted by W9FL it shows a bunch of new icons on the second menu that 1.40 didn't have as far as I know. I'm curious, could it be that that photo is for 1.41 or did 1.40 have those icons too?

    I updated the rig...well...just because I could, hadn't heard of it doing any harm, and after 1.40 I was refamiliarized with doing the update. :)
