I doubt it will work. The update program checks the current
version before it does the firmware update (it did tell me what
version I had before proceeding with the update). I suspect that
the firmware detects a non-Canon flash and randomly disable the
triggering on purpose!!! How else could be explained that it only
works (or not work) randomly??

Hey Yu-Lin

what flash do you have? I have a Metz 32MZ-3 it sometimes doesnot fire with the old firmware too! (1 out of ten) I use second curtain on this with improved results picturewise. But this might be the reason for not firing?

After I read that the Canon Flash allways uses aperture wide open, I hesitate buying it. I like the broad DOF on the pictures. So far I could do pretty well with the Metz (Fstop 4 usually), it would be a great loss to lose it!
