As soon as they released the downgrader for ta-082's I tried the easy downgrader and it bricked. I was wondering if a new motherboard will fix this and if yes could I purchase a 1.5 and it would work? Second and most importent, Does it require soldering? From what I have seen it does not look like it, And one last thing updating to the 3.02 modified firmware. Is it easier then downgrading? As the main thing I want to use a few homebrew applications on it. Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help me out.
