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

Once again, better visible a a new thread:

One dear user broke his box flashing it, it was an FM with hardware mask
0x0504. Until the cause is resolved, I'd like to issue a big warning for FM
users with that hardware version. Please don't flash yours for the time being! If
you already did and succeeded, please post so.

I have no explaination for this by now, at least the safety image should
have worked. Except for the hardware mask, the original flash content was
identical to the unit I used, as well as the boot ROM. My bootlader should have
run, what else could the box do? The boot ROM is not using the hardware mask,
only the later application softtware.

Really sad and sorry,
