He is using Windows, so, yeah - the tool should be picking up the latest 
firmware automatically. The issue is more likely related to what Ryan 
was saying about non release hardware.

The Windows tool is actually quite nice. It does have one flaw - it 
makes you connect the tablet whilst it downloads the firmware, which is 
not a good idea IMO. It should allow the firmware to be downloaded first 
- though I'm guessing it's using the tablet to get the MAC address info, 
so maybe it's just a design flaw mascaraing as a questionable practice 
:-) Should probably give the option to manually enter the MAC address, 
or at least, remember the last one, so that the painful wait on battery 
is lessened. (NOTICE: I use a Mac now and have only used the Windows 
flasher circa IT OS 2007, so it might have changed by now..)
