Default ICOM IC-F50V(11) Firmware Upgrade

I have an IC-F50V which has firmware version 3.6 in it. I have programming software version 3.1.1. After reading here on the forum, I know the software is not compatible with the radio. My question is this: Can I flash this radio's firmware from version 3.6 up to version 3.6.1 or 3.6.2? If so, does anyone have a source where I can get the firmware flashing program?

Default Update

I contacted an Icom dealer and got the radio upgraded to 3.6.2. The features added are additional alert tone options for when the radio receives a valid selective call or call alert using 2 tone, or other signalling types. I'm told the purpose of this option was to mimic the sounds a Motorola pager makes when receiving a call. Thank you to all who contributed to previous posts on this topic.

Not sure if you got this resolved, but 3.6 firmware requires 3.1 software, not 3.1.1.

Does anyone know of an online dealer that would be able to send or sell me the firmware update for the F50V? My closest dealer is 2 hours away and they are closed when I am off work.
