The correct procedure after update is to set current configuration after selecting g11. So you did that!
As for the northern hemisphere I think this is a consequence of this not being a new install. So useful tip for everyone is likely to be to ensure the northern hemisphere is selected upon initial setup of the new firmware with the UFCT.
So glad to hear all went well.
