Not sure its worth anything but I've never done a factory reset for a firmware update and never had an issue. I owned an R3 and as of a year ago have two R7's. Load the firmware and if it works you're good. If it's not broke stop trying to fix it.
I think when you tried doing the update...
not sure why but K band suddenly got noisy after the update. TSF on, narrow K on, rear k off, and k reduced to 70%.

Yeah thats complete paranoid BS. I worked LE for 7 years and no one has time to talk about radar detectors...lol.
And don't worry, I've been cleared by admin a long time ago so you can save time putting on your tin foil hat and reporting me to admin as a spy
