Before Updating to Firmware 2.0 on the E-M1

I use this spread sheet, and it is an excellent help.

I see many complaining about the latest 2.0 firmware erasing the custom settings on the EM-1. Having had my camera repaired recently (rear control wheel), and then downloading the update, I have had to reset everything twice.

One advantage of this occasional resetting is it helps you to recall how you had the camera set up, and whether it's time to give it a few tweaks. While I have my preferences for the button and dial assignments pretty much worked out, I did change a few minor things during the latest setup process.

The EM-1 is so sophisticated (control wise) once set up that I find I rarely need to use the menu functions, preferring the SCP for most temporary changes. It's easy to forget just how customizable this camera is unless you are forced to descend into the menus. ;)
