I updated the firmware last night. I don't usually keep the wireless adapter thingie plugged in, because I don't stream with the player much, and the wireless adapter sticks out a bit. Remember I cannot use the USB in back of the machine because the mod plugs in there, otherwise I'd connect a LAN cable in back. After the update, my mod still works fine. After several firmware updates, I'm of the mind that the hardware mods are firmware immune. Looking forward now to watching Region B disc of The Innocents, which I received yesterday.
