I am basing my advice based on similar calibration firmware in the HC3000.
BrilliantColor is always off for calibration - it is designed to make some colors or some greys brighter which destroys color decoding and blows out gamma. It is not a calibration control - it is a marketing control
Color is typical video color saturation adjusted with the colorbars and blue filters.
I doubt you need custom gamma as Cinema should be standard 2.2 if you have calibrated brightness/contrast properly.
I cannot speak to your new sensor compatibility with CF6.0 - I thought you needed CF7.0 for new sensors and I don't know if it is on the list.
Copying numbers does not work. Discussing calibration approaches does. I have posted about this many times before.
Most have posted they have greenish greyscale, likely if new firmware targets 6500K which is not D65 - a common mistake with PJ reviewers and designers!. This is best fixed by cutting green contrast - not increasing red/blue contrast because of color clipping. But someone else may be a bit too yellow or a bit too cyan - which is more of a balance issue. But don't confuse grayscale issues with tint/color issues with gamut issues with color decoding issue- you most certainly need calibration gear to decipher what the problems really are - and enough experience to know the differences and what controls control this or that or not.
An analogy is you are a teeter totter builder - and the playground supervisor writes back and says the installer miscentered the teeter so it will not totter. Can you tell me how many gradeschool kids I must put on each side to get it balanced?
