Unable to update OM-D firmware

You may need to wait longer.

I did the update earlier this week, on a Macbook Pro with Mountain Lion. Went from firmware 1.2 to 1.4 and then 1.4 to 1.5. The update process is a bit strange. For a while it is downloading (I note high network activity) and then it appears to be idle for a few minutes (no network activity) and only then does it start uploading the firmware to the camera (and then the display shows the do not disconnect and transmission icons, and after yet another few minutes the OK message).

So patience is in order. One update step took maybe 10 minutes or so but the first stage (the download) may take longer mainly depending on how busy the Olympus server is.

In any case, it did work for me, on a Macintosh.
