Still not for those faint of heart
It has been noted here that the problem with v2.07 is no longer the upgrade from 1.x, which was the problem that started this discussion a few months ago. In my opinion, there still exists the possibility that the trouble will show up when upgrading FROM v2.07. Here is why: A few people upgraded their new player (v1.x) to the now infamous v2.12 successfully. Several people, including me, bricked their player when upgrading from v2.07 to v2.12. I have not seen anybody complaining that the upgrade from v1.x to v2.12 bricked their player. It is probably a small population of people who tried this exact upgrade, since v2.12 was not available long, but I have to believe that at least one such person would stumble upon this thread like the rest of us have after bricking their new player. This opens the possibility that v2.07 will still be problematic when upgrading to v2.13 or whatever is next. Furthermore, Samsung is apparently mute on the latest discussion, which makes me nervous.
Here is my best advice: If you have problems playing discs or find a bug in your player that drives you nuts, then consider upgrading to 2.07. If everything is good, then wait for the next firmware release. Then wait a couple of weeks and check back here to see if there are problems. An abundance of caution is warranted here, based on past history.
