2012 BIG Firware Update

Is this someting that the end user can install via USB port? Or can only the dealer update? I see that the BIG has a software update feature and it would be nice if I could do the update myself.

I asked my dealer and they have not heard of an update, which Im surprised that either they are not up to speed on recent developments/issues with the big, or if MC has not issued a firmware update yet based on the problems people are experiencing.

Anyone know or have access to this update?

My dealer just sent me an update today. I will be updating tomorrow. He said they just released an update, but I have a 2011, not sure if that matters.

If you do a version update record the versions before and after. On my 2010 the dealer thought they were doing an update and turned out it was the same version. Later on they did have a version update.

My dealer said that he had "just installed the new update" for my 2012 BIG when I took delivery in April. I am in need of another, however, to get mine working correctly. So, according to my dealer, one came through in March or April, but another is sorely needed and is "on its way."

I will do the update tomorrow and report back on the version numbers, so then maybe we will be able to tell if this is a recent update.
