That’s great. I was right then. Classic is original FE and Plus is FE2. Let me join the club that thinks this coupled with E is the best sound
No. FEv2 has 2 modes (as has dawn and midnight) where the classic mode is the same as the previous FE fw and plus mode is an enhanced mode (That consumes 20-25% more battery).

These are all the MrWalkman fw

Thanks, I had lost track of the versions and was getting confused.

Yes that’s what I’ve got. What I mean is FE (Plus mode) also known as FEV2?
FEv2 is a dual boot custom firmware. The classic mode has the same tuning as the original FE and the the plus mode has the same tuning as the FE+. This was done to give you that added convenience of having 2 different tunings in your player. Hope that clears it up.

that’s exactly what I thought. I’ve moved back from Dawn and had numerous folders called FE so wanted to check I had definitely moved to the correct one

Then install Midnight as that is what it's designed for.

Only the current versions of MrWalkman's firmware are available on his website (for the WM1A, that would be Dawn and Midnight): https://www.mrwalkman.ml/p/sony-wm1a-wm1z-custom-firmware.html
Older versions are not there anymore. Maybe someone saved a copy and can send it to you.

I posted a link to chameleon 2.0 a few pages back. That’s the closest and best representation of the 1Z sound on the 1A. Even midnight adds external tuning. Try Chameleon 2.0 if you want the 1Z sound on 1A.

Here it is
