eco, you seem to be a little fixated on the firmware thing. What Jason said was:
"The USB boards that we received came with an earlier version of the firmware. We want to get you the latest, so we have to update them...."
Jason hasn't said anything about a firmware update for the main pcb as far as I can tell.
Now about this firmware updating thing: I've updated the firmware for my phone, my TV, my satellite receiver, my DVD/Blu-Ray player, my wireless router, and my internal SSD for my computer many times, with firmware updates made available to the public via download from the Internet. Not a huge deal. Yes, you can brick a device if you screw up (or if you are so very unlucky as to, for example, have the power go out in the middle of updating). But considering the Bifrost's capabilities can be modified through downloadable files (such as USB 2.0 drivers for Windows), I'd actually be a bit surprised at this point if the Bifrost's firmware were not able to be modified in the same way.
