Questions on Firmware 2.1

I decided to update to Firmware 2.1 from 2.0.

The WiFi icon disappeared. I finally trased it to a locked SD chip. I think the chip may have been set to lock while inserting the SD chip.

I don't remember that happening with firmware 2.0

Anyone with the EM1mk2 with firmware 2.0, can try this,

2 SD chips, set to independent, the Slot 1 to RAW and Slot 2 to JPG. Then preview set to Slot 2. Can you view the JPG from your Oi.Share (android)? Then set the SD Lock on, Is that WiFi icon available?

OR does that firmware 2.1 makes also these changes?

Re: Questions on Firmware 2.1

Haven't got OI share on my tablet and poor internet connecton so can't try this for you at the moment Henry. I didn't realise there was a vsn 2.1, i'm still on 2.0. Were the updates in 2.1 worth it? I seem to have missed that update completely.

It's not worth it if you don't have the particular Panasonic lens it was updated for. I'm still on 2.0 as well.

Re: Questions on Firmware 2.1

When I first updated to Ver 2.1, the first thing was the WiFi icon disappeared. Then after discovering it was that lock on the SD, then next thing was when I tried to import Photos, my android says no pictures to import So i took a couple of shots in JPG and still the Android said no photos
Uninstalled the android OI.share, reinstall and everything is back to normal. What changed, nothing.

Re: Questions on Firmware 2.1

Since 2.1 is only for a Panasonic lens I didn't think it was worth worrying about, as shown here.
E-M1 Mk II FW update Mar 2018.JPG

And FW 2.0 is;
E-M1 Mk II FW update Feb 2018.jpg
Which is certainly worthwhile, but if not yet at 2.0 then obviously do the FW 2.1 update to get the lot.
Details found here. http://dl01.olympus-imaging.com/ww/u.../index21a.html
