the answer is no, the 9550 is supported since version 3, the e5800 only got support since version 7, which is later, all you need to do is swap it in and enjoy the quad

Think you were looking at the LX, not the LX2. I did the same thing at first. Advice is still valid though, no update should be necessary.
