I have a dvr-k16la fw ver. 1.15 installed in a usb2 enclosure, I run it on a Lenovo Thinkpad x61 laptop.
The drive is rpc-2 region limited, 5 changes.
I was looking to flash it with a rpc 1 or autoreset fw.
I could only find patched fw based on v. 1.33, 1.42, 1.44. (I think I would need the 1.33 or 1.44 with kernel)
The question is - can I flash it with one of these fw's, will it still work via the usb connection?
