Subject: Re: !!!! DON'T FLASH FM WITH HARDWARE MASK 0x0504!!!!
From: scott (
Date: 2003-07-15

too late, i flashed last night (i think i was the first to post i'd done it). my mask is 0x0504
and my FMR works fine.

i think the guy who posted and said his was broke just wasn't holding On, but i'd have to go back
and look.

in any case, mine works, so i'm happy.
