A kind soul sent me the region free firmware for the EP35 this has now been tested and...............it works.
Viking 61 has kindly loaded it onto a Rapidshare site for easy downloading.
Just want to say a big thanks to Viking for all his help on modifying firmware and helping out forum members
EP35 region free here.
This region free firmware also requires 2 restarts.
It is for the EP35, not for the EP30.
The firmware is built on the EP35 version 1.3, but can be applied onto all versions, including 4.0. Re-apply version 4.0 after making it region free.4.0 > XE1 E1 EP10 EP35
