    ...unless my eyes are deceiving me (I have had a couple of bottles of Old Peculiar), just received FW updated dated 18/01/2014 in the UK

    I do hope this isn't a false alarm

    nice one. I too am in the UK but no update for me yet - which is fine, yesterday, I received the replacement for my Surface which the December Update screwed up. I will wait for some feedback before installing this, I don't want to have another exchange.

    Hmm, looks promising! :3 But it seems small compared to the december firmware... but of course it's mostly a fix probably - makes me wonder whether the people who never updated to the december one, actually get the improvements or not.

    Anyways, no update here in Germany yet.. but it's 2 hours past midnight anyways. The admins of the distribution servers are probably sleeping yet - unlike the UK ones, apparently, lol xD

    Good point, makes sense to update those SP2 with the December FW Update installed first.

    No firmware update here, but then this is a "post-December 10" SP2. While distribution of the firmware blob may just be random, making it available first to the SP2s affected by the Bad Firmware would be a great idea.

    Does the new firmware update provide any benefit for SP2s unaffected by the 12/10 problems?

    I got my SP2 in early January and it is a 4300u so it wasn't affected by the bad firmware and I got the update almost as soon as it was reported in the UK this evening.
