I thought about doing it, but I don't really need it. Check out the AVForum. They have a ton of info on the process and what to expect and whether it'll be worth it to you or not.

I upgraded the firmware on my LNT40-81F series TV. Just copied the firmware file to my usb stick and then went to the menu and on the TV and installed it. Took a few mins and I wwas all set afterwards. Definitely check the www.avsforum.com forums

What's there to know? You get a USB drive, place downloaded file onto the USB drive, plug USB drive into TV... and that's it.

Either Samsung's website (usually under "Support" or "Downloads") or send tech support an email and they'll send you the file.
