But there is always the risk that installing it could corrupt something.

If its the same base program just reacting to what hardware is installed I doubt that it would corrupt something, and many people still have fairly large issues with v3.0.2 and might be served by taking that risk, well we really only need one person to find if it works. My car doesn't have mft or I'd have jumped on this already.

I thought it was discovered that an update can't "brick" our systems, I think if anything, if the update doesn't apply to the Focus it will give us a message saying so.

I lol'd, this was a good comeback.

I also wonder if those brave enough to test this will have to unshackle the MFT's AI. If so, I reserve the right to blame them for plugging in the overlord. Can anyone confirm that the official installation procedure for this update doesn't include AI unshackling? That'd be a dealbreaker for me.
This also made me lol. Samantha's just the name we gave EDI, right?

I'm willing to try this (just started the download)

Two questions though:

1. I have the extended warranty (yay for buying it online at 1/3 what the dealer wanted) will this void it?
2. If this messes up the system, is downgrading possible? (ie: can I put in the 3.02 update and downgrade to it?)

1. It shouldn't void any warranty after all it is ford software on ford hardware.

2. If it is truly compatible with our version of MFT hardware like our resident IVT contact said it was as linked to earlier it won't mess up the system. If its not compatible it should just refuse to install at all.

Sounds good. I'm going out in a few hours, so I'll install it then (or try)


hmmm, interesting, the timestamp on all the update files is 6-15-12

To me, thats good news. It means they spent over 2 months testing it.

If the MFT update is anything like other software updates, it will do a check to see what is installed already and proceed to update the already installed files. If you have files it diesnt recognize, it will killtge update process before beginning and throw an error. Again, IF MS created this like virtually all software.

The size of the update merely reflects that is a cumulative update (ie, able to update all versions of MFT).

tl;dr -
If the update truly doesn't work on all cars, chances are it won't install.

Agreed. The install is not done blindly and shouldn't work (assuming that the install method is similar to the 3.0.2 update_).
