So when I tried following the first step, running the update through recovery menu an error popped up saying "data is corrupt." If someone could please advise as to what this means or what to do, I'd really appreciate it. THanks again!
What FW are you currently on?
If you are on a FW higher then 3.55 you'll need a flasher to downgrade first.
Sounds like either you're on FW 3.56+ or something went wrong when you downloaded the pup
