Has anybody made their Viltrox 85mm 1.8 a 1.6 on Fuji

Just wondering if this will work on Fuji.

Apparently Viltrox released a secret firmware to its fans in China that will make the lens a 1.6. Apparently it was over-engineered and is actually a 1.6 lens. Might explain the size also. This is for the version I STM lens.

I have seen people do it on Sony, but want to do it on Fuji for an extra 1/3 stop of light and even thinner DOF for portraits.

Thanks!
