I quickly skimmed this thread... didn't anything specific unless I missed it
As @rashkae said, you can do this. And it is probably safe. The changes in the firmware that affected the drivers function have been fairly rare. Most were additions that didn't actually affect things, but, I added something later to take advantage of. Collections and series info are the most obvious examples.

I really don't expect this to change, but, there is no way that I'm taking out the warning. Because if something does change, I don't want people blaming me for this. There were some suggestions about changing work a differently, or have more options (such as resetting when calibe is updated). But, with how little anyone actually pays attention to the current message, or even bother to look at the full message, I'm not very motivated. There has been another suggestion to check online if the firmware version is unknown, but, that's just going to feed the "it talks to a server so it must be an invasion of privacy and a massive security risk" trolls.
