    confused: how to update d2prov2 firmware

    If this could be done with DVD, where I could not find iso from D2pro web site for 2.1 firmware?
    If this has to be done by d2prog, why do they claim it's DVD updateable?

    thanks in advance.

    An alternative release of v2.1 firmware has been made available in the resources section for d2c users experiencing problems with the v2.1 update.

    I saw this posted many times. But does every d2prov2 owner have to buy d2prog just for firmware updating? How about the nice DVD updateable feature? I also posted this question to D2pro web site but hear back nothing yet. Could any reseller step out to clarify it?

    Thanks

    It is currently recommended (even on the D2pro site) that if you have D2C or D2C2 mod chip then do NOT update yet as it has problems, they are working on new firmware.

    The 2.1 Fw is to update the Actel Chip which requires the D2PROG. The 1.5 FW is for the Flash chip (SPI I think its called) which can be done by DVD. It is not yet clear whether the Actel chip needs to be flashed.

    EDIT: It seems that an Alternate version of the 2.1FW is now available. But still not clear the benefit of this update.

    No the new 2.1 firmware is an alternative one that just got released today that makes it so that it works on d2c wiis.
