Yes, this is exactly what I did. And the effect was nil, as you described.

I tried all of this sometime last week, using the then most current version (V4, I think). I will try all available versions when I get home in about an hour and report back.

Alright, I tried again. With V5, V6, and V1 for good measure:
  • I dropped the two files into the card's root directory
  • I started the camera in play mode
  • I selected "Firm Update..." from the menu
  • I confirmed that I wanted to update "1.0.0.0 -> 1.0.1.1"
  • The camera rebooted pretty much straight away
  • A green LED between the view finder and the power button blinked three times. This is not anything special. It always does that when the camera boots.
  • The was no blue LED, no blue splash and nothing new in the menus or on the OSD
  • I am out of ideas :(
Each attempt to update the firmware creates a small binary file named "UpdateLog.txt". I don't know its format, so I cannot tell whether this has any information about why the upgrade failed.

Maybe you have 1.00B too. Not 1.01B. ?

Ouch. You make me feel stupid now... I didn't look carefully enough :(. Wishful thinking, hoping I had 1.01B I guess:
