There are a multiple of other changes with this software upgrade.

For anyone with a 430W who might be interested, I upgraded the firmware on my 430W today to the version noted above. I can confirm the approaches listed by the OP are now present and selectable with this latest firmware upgrade.

Latest Garmin database update (18 SEP14) left out all 3 approaches at KHAO - ILS29, AND 2 GPS approaches. I called Garmin the next day and he was going to report it, but bottom line, if you are headed to HAO IFR, get yourself hard copies somewhere. This is for the the Garmin Pilot App, not navigator updates.

Aww bugger. This doesn't help my constant debate between GP and Foreflight. Especially with the recent issues people have been reporting with the new v4 updates to the app.
