TOSHIBA FIRMWARES posted by MrBosh on Monday, 7th October 2002, 22:10
I've read a lot about the firmware hack updates which apparently work for the Toshiba SD120E and SD220E. Does anyone know if it works on the SD100E which I have or other variants? If Toshiba firmware is generic (which I dont know if it is) there shouldn't be a problem. However I'm reluctant to go ahead and flash my ROM with something incompatible which could ultimately render my player useless. I am aware the SD100E is capable of firmware dynamic upgrades. Any suggestions if this would work or, where I might obtain a binary file compatible with my model?

a lot of people are cunfused about this upgrade disk for the 120 and 220 , it DOES NOT ALTER THE FIRMWARE !! , it is an upgrade disk that alters the players SETTINGS to Auto Region , it DOES NOT ALTER FIRMWARE!
It does not work on anything older than 120 / 220 so it does not work on 110 / 210 / 100 etc ....

Just to clear this up...
According to Toshiba customer services, there is a firmware upgrade disc, this upgrades the firmware on 220e players to v1.5 (stops branching issues) this is not a multi-region upgrade. They only supply dealers with this disc, wouldn't send it direct to me.
Richer sounds I know have the multi region upgrade disc, they used it while I waited.

it cant work on older machines because the "routine" is not bulit into the firmware for the disk to activate , if I try to tell you a link here it gets blocked such as you can buy a chip for £20 from d******* !!
