Can't Update Firmware on GR IIIx

I just got the camera in today and am going by the steps on the official firmware page to get to version 1.5 since it appears this came with version 1.0. Once I have the .bin file located at the root of my memory card and reinsert with a fully charged battery, I hold the menu button and press the on/off button to no avail. It just turns the camera on as normal. I've also tried holding both as well as trying a different memory card.

Has anyone ran into this in the past or perhaps I'm missing something? Thanks in advance.

Edit:  I may delete this post in embarrassment if someone can respond with my most likely conclusion.  I'm going to guess version 1.0 is specific for the GR IIIx and that I'm good to go and that version 1.5 is for the GR III (non X) specifically
