I noticed that one vendor had the following note in their sale posting
** Please note
1) The card will be preconfigured for 8 gb storage only.
2) You will not be able to change the firmware as a little modifications
have been done in PCB.
Not nice sports fans.
Any idea which vendor to buy from to get an "open" part, how to preserve
the firmware / settings on what you get if you wish to modify it as an
open product? The above is pretty nasty for the vendor of an open
product, and I think I'll be buying from someone else.
