Yeah. The bin files usually contain several updates, one for differing versions, for example the 2.5.2 update has 2.3 -> 2.5.2 update, 2.3.1 -> 2.5.2 update ... 2.3.4 -> 2.5.2 update. But they can't waste too much money on Whispernet charges to include a full update.

The 2.3 update was 17-18 megs, and contained updates for 2.0.x -> 2.3.

The 2.5.3 update only works for 2.5.2 (and is less than 100k).
