How Long to Update Firmware

I decided to update my firmware tonight, downloaded the Olympus Digital Camera Updater, got everything attached.

Software currently says 'updating firmware' but its been doing it for 30 mins, is this normal?

One of mine took about 40 mins.

There is a way around it if it does not come back to life. Check out this link https://lightsnowdev.com/Olympus/

Otherwise it is a trip to Portugal!

Re: How Long to Update Firmware

I've just done mine right now & it took 11mins to download. If it has a [cancel] option (during download) then it is OK to cancel it & everything will be as it was. You could then try again later (which is what I would do in those circumstance). I hope it happens OK for you though.
