If one starts with the latest download of Raspbian Wheezy "2013-09-25-wheezy-raspbian.zip"

Then at command line:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo reboot

sudo rpi-update
sudo reboot

This is what have at present:

/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd version

Moose

You're back level on the current firmware.

There's a final update on 15th that fixes the missing SPI devices.

You need to re-run rpi-update to get current.

sudo rpi-update is how to get beta versions, apt-get upgrade is all you need for current stable.
