Can't locate XT3 Firmware 2.0?

I have tried to download the newest XT3 firmware and every Fujifilm link takes me to a file "FWUP0019.DAT" which during flashing appears to be ver 1.2?  Where is ver 2.0 located?  Thanks.

All updates for the X-T3 will have the same file name.

Be sure you haven't accidentally put the new file in the same folder with an earlier version, resulting in the new one being called something like FWUP0019 (1).DAT or FWUP0019 - Copy.DAT.

Thanks.  I did format the SD card and then copied the newly downloaded firmwware over but it still shows up as ver 1.2?    I have done this plenty of times with my XT1 and never had an issue.  Will try again just in case I am doing something incredibly stupid?  Good to know the firmware name stays the same.

99% sure I did (a couple times) but will try again.  Getting older sucks, brain does not work as well!

FWUP0019.DAT is the correct FW container for ver 2.0. It is also the same container for ALL X-T3 FW updates. For example FWUP0019.DAT was also used for the previous FW update ver 1.02.

It is possible that in your download location on your computer you will find an FWUP0019.DAT(1) file. In that case delete the first file and relabel without the (1).

Otherwise use the simplest new method of FW update by using the Fujifilm Cam Remote app (iOS/Android) via BT connection which will seamlessly install any new FW.

Thanks.  Will do that.   Based on the fact that nobody else has this problem, I clearly was not using the latest version.

Alternatively, it may be worth giving the remote app a shot for firmware upgrades. I’m generally not a fan of it, but that does seem to be the one bit they got quite right.

That is exactly what I just did.  Worked fine, ver 2.0 is up and running!  Thanks.
