Does it mean i can use any of these files for flashing the ESCs? If not, what firmware file should i use for them?
I have those exact ESCs on 4s running dji 2212 motors and saw no issues with performance. What is the reason to get them reflashed?

No reason, if you do not have issues with performance.

May be it was dumb luck but i tried 3 kinds of escs - all came from ebay claimed to carry 'last' simonk firmware and vehicles flew ok on them. Dys 30a, those black ones above and some complete no name 20a stuff in a red wrapper.

I wonder if it could be better but as long as calibration completes and motors turn imdid not see why to mess with that.

On tarot imheard sometimes a bit of a high pitch tone at yaw movement but as motors and escs are just barely warm and it flies smoothly and with an expected thrust i kept it as it is.

So, speaking of simonk code base itself - are those versions different enough to keep code reflashed or it is stable to the level where it is irrelevant if it was flashed 1 or 2 years ago?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it doesn't work then beat it with a hammer and if it breaks then your not out anything

My original HK30A that I flashed when I bought them almost 2 years ago are still running the same simonk and still work fine without ever updating them. Now if you were running BLHeli I'd say update, if you're running SimonK and they work I'd say leave them
