With most firmware updates yes it does wipe it clean. BUT going from 1.1 to 1.3 does not do this w/ the vertex. Its not a major update (takes about 2 seconds for it to complete) and as such doesn't do a full erase first, it just updates / patches a few sectors of the firmware area. Of course data corruption can occur like on any drive but it is unlikely.
