    You, sir, are either misinformed or misunderstood my question. I don't want to buy a "regular" D2Pro9 and have to buy the programmer only so that I can make it upgradeable via DVD and never use the programmer again. I want to buy it already with this firmware. Read this thread for more info on what I have been waiting for.

    Ca

    hey all

    all d2pro9 v2 are dvd updatable .... on the market as of june 2/08

    no d2prog needed at this point

    all the previous d2pro9's will need to be programmed at the very least with 1.1b
    ask the modchip place to update it for you prior to sending......

    Thanks for the news!

    Now, I tried going to several NA distributors () and I did find a D2Pro9 v2.0, but there is no mention of DVD upgradeability in the description. This is pretty much what they all say:

    This is the 9 wire version of the D2Pro9 which comes with a 1MB Spi Flash.

    # 9 wires to install on d2c drives
    # 8 Mbit (1MB) onboard flash (only around 4% is used for storing drivecode...)
    # Flash and FPGA fully updateable via JTAG (external programmer required)


    Here are links to these products from modchipcentral.com, foundmy.com and cellexmods.com.

    Actually, scratch that. I kept looking at other distributors before posting this, and I found that mad-mods.com does mention "Fully configurable and updatable via DVD." Now, isn't this the main feature added in v2.0 or at least one of the most important ones? Wouldn't you think that's something they all would mention? Unfortunately, mad-mods doesn't have a bundle with a screwdriver and clip or let you specify you want the clip soldered. Their site is pretty bad and I would rather go with someone else.

    Thank you.

    So you had to ask him (?) to do something. I don't want to have to ask. I want to be able to buy the modchip as is with DVD upgradeability, hence my question -- which ModderMan answered. I am also not sure the firware in your upgraded 1.1 (beta?) is the same one being shipped in that 2.0 chips ModderMan refers to. Those are the ones I want.
