    Good questions - Yes to USB flash and version 15 or later, as version 14 build was run before the GB update..

    Thats a different driver update ... the boot changes are in #15
    If you putty into the receiver and do a cat /proc/partitions you should see the difference in partition size.
    You should also have seen the special update on the Giga‘s LCD when you usb flashed.

    GigaBlue 4K Drivers update - needs USB flash

    If you have flashed 015 or newer one by USB, you do not need to flash any other subsequent ones by USB.

    A software update will be fine.
