R9000 v1.0.4.26 firmware - Instructions - "Important Note #3" - Reset??

Firmware v 1.0.4.26, Instructions, "Important Note #3" (red text).  Instructs user to "reset to factory default" after posting this firmware.  Is that required?  What's the impact if I don't take that step?

A factory reset is not always needed. If you do not do it, you may experience post-flash problems. You may also miss out on any new features that the firmware enables.

 

The usual strategy is to leave well alone, and to reset only if you have problems.

 

It can help to take screen grabs of the settings should you need to reconfigure the device. Reloading saved settings is not recommended.

 

 

 

 

Just another user.
