If you set your in-camera color profile to sRGB in the past, you probably didn't see a greenish tint before, but setting it to Adobe RGB gave it a noticeably yellow-green tint. That was the likely cause of many reports of a green tint. Since it didn't matter a lot with how I post-processed my images, I kept my cameras set to sRGB and got nicer color prior to this update. It's good to see it's fixed, though.

When I checked this morning, the Nikon USA site also listed the last firmware update (A 1.00/b 1.02) on the main download page, but when you clicked on that to get to the D800e firmware page, the new firmware update (A 1.01/B 1.02) was listed.
I, too, have updated my D800 with the latest firmware. It took only 3 minutes using an old 1GB Sandisk CF card.
I have not tested the main improvement (AF-C) provided in this firmware. I looked at the images on the LCD and did not notice any difference. I had not noticed any green tint on the rear LCD before this firmware upgrade either, so overall no change for me.
As an aside, I have felt my D800E was already tracking very well. I even had one notable weekend where I felt the D800E beat my D4 for tracking BIF. Anyhow, if it's even better that is always welcome, as are all of the other updates.

My D800e's tracked very well before too. With the new firmware, it feels a little more snapper.
No, firmware updates won't change any of your settings.
For safety, why not back your settings up using the Save/load settings item in the SETUP MENU. This will back up all your settings except AF fine tune values and picture controls. The picture controls can be saved with Manage Picture Control in the SHOOTING MENU. Unfortunately the AF fine tune values cannot be saved, you'll have to save them manually.

I updated my firmware last night on my D800 and noticed that in dimmer light AF C hunts more and at a more rapid rate. It seems that while a picture may be out of focus ,it is less severe than prior to the update.
