I'm on whatever f/w came with my M4 in july, which was the one with the fix.

Your good. If your not on the original FW that was to cause certain BSOD almost hourly... then I would not change a thing. I probably would not change anything until I started getting BSOD at this point.
Then if I did get a BSOD i'd get support from Crucial for the right path of action.

I verified the f/w at that time and haven't bothered with it since. I didn't even know there was a newer f/w available.

I received an email from Crucial late last year about new firmware, but I ignored it. Now I'm glad I did.

I think I'll take the same approach to SSD firmware that I do with video drivers--if it ain't broke don't fix it. Although I will note that with that approach I did recently have a problem with my HD Homerun Prime, which was still using 2011 beta software.

Wish I would have found this thread before deciding it must be a driver issue or something and reinstalling Windows in the HTPC I sold my buddy. I have spent way to many hours screwing around with this thing now when all I would have needed was a firmware update. It was still on 009. Going to update now and do a reformat as well just for good measure. Hopefully it will fix the problem.

Sorry to hear your troubles. Threads like this make me want to bump all those old SSD arguments people used to have where everyone always said crucial was the most reliable and bashed others like they would fail. Lol.
