    My controller won't update to the new firmware via any method (micro sd, usb drive, micro usb to gimble, mobile device.) I've noticed that the controller powers on dirrectly when pressing the button, rather than requiring you to press the button twice. I feel like these two problems may be connected but I am not sure. Controller is a gl300c model.

    Which version do you see in the "General Settings" --> "About" section of DJI GO?

    It's not possible to power it on with a single press. Pressing the button once will only show the current charge level.

    The app version is 2.9.2
    The Aircraft version is unknown
    The remote controller is 1.4.30+

    And the controller is powering on with a single press. I can attach a video if you don't believe me.

    Also now it is telling me my phantom 3 advanced is a phantom 4.

    It would be interesting to see that in action.

    It's hard to see what you're doing in that GIF. If it's really turning on/off with a single press, then you should contact DJI support for help.
