s3 Pro Firmware Upgrade

Has anyone actually done the new firmware upgrade that is supposed to fix write speeds to high-capacity CF cards and the auto-rotation, etc?

I have pored over the instructions and with all the warnings about catastrophic (read that 'send the camera back to fuji to repair) errors possible, I'm scared to do it, but I desperately want to fix the high-capacity write. And I don't really trust Fuji's instructions, given that these are the same people who got pan and zoom labels reversed on the camera's playback AND who instructed that you use a white card to get a custom white balance rather than the gray card that it turns out you need to use.

Also, the instructions appear to suggest that the upgrade has to be downloaded to a xD-Picture card. Is that correct or can I use a CF card to do it?

I just would like to hear that someone else performed the upgrade and the world didn't end.
