I found a link over at ************** forum. They give you step by step instructions, but it's basically this: put the downloaded firmware on a SD card, pop it in, and your tv will recognize the firmware. Then you follow the on screen directions.
I would still follow the guide on the website where it is downloaded. I would post a link but I can't find it again...
Here's a quote from Gotchaa at higdefjunkies:
"Junkies, cross post as there may be interest:
Here is the latest. Color update is approved. It will be available as a secure download from Panasonic. Time frame is end of this month early next month. Distribution will be similar to the Cameron "Avatar" update, in that you will be informed applying it will change performance of your display, so it is your choice to install it or not.
It will be available for the VT series and possibly the GT (though not 100% confirmed yet).
You should see improvements in high and mid panel brightness with color luminance.
If you are unsure about applying this update wait till DYI folks apply it. I think everyone will be happy with the improvement.
There have been techniques that calibrators have used to optimized the panel without this update, so I would recommend speaking to your calibrator if you are concerned about applying this update as it may alter your pro calibration.
It is your choice to apply or not. IMHO, many of you that have pro cal's already have an excellent picture due to the skills of your calibrator (at least we hope), so I would not think anyone is missing anything per se if they do not apply this update."
There's also a D-Nice quote there on the firmware that I have been trying to find and cannot. It talked about the firmware update and his custom settings, but his wording kinda threw me off whether or not it would effect his settings.
EDIT: Here's that D-Nice quote
"The 65VT30 was calibrated today with the new color luminance firmware. It is a marked improved compared to how the Mid panel brightness use to look post calibration @ a color setting of 50. However, I do not think it is a miracle firmware and it definitely has issues (i.e. a color setting of 50 does not always look correct). For those wo have already had their display calibrated by myself or toher calibrators who know how to work around the VT30s color deficiencies, there is absolutely no reason to install this update and have your panel recalibrated.
Kudos for the update Panasonic, but I personally think color decoding should have been the focus."
So it seems to me that he is saying there is no need to re-calibrate after doing the update? And yes he says VT30 but the same update is available for our GT30.
