There is a home patrol user group on yahoo that has these files our there for download. You have to become a group member.

Connect the scanner to your PC, and select 'Mass Storage Mode'.
Copy the firmware file to the folder on the scanner's memory card that is labeled as 'firmware'.
Correctly disconnect the scanner from the pc (use the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media; the icon for that should be in the notification tray, lower right hand corner of the screen).
Once you disconnect the scanner by unplugging the cable, the scanner should restart and load the firmware during the boot up process.

If you do an "update firmware" in Sentinel, it will try to download & install the current file, instead of retaining the older version that you want.
