Re: deinstitutionalize or factory restore

Again as I explained, there is no (consumer) known way for you to do this. Pay the 25 bucks and send it in so they can do it. They have these things locked down pretty tight; nobody to my knowledge has found a way to circumvent it.

Just follow the manual firmware update instructions on these forums. But my guess is that your device will refuse to update.

According to others who have had one of these that will be the scenario.

This is the alternative firmware provided by the community.  There may be problems with patching though.

Yeah if you can't update the firmware there would be no way to patch it either.

Re: deinstitutionalize or factory restore

Did the Bureau of Prisons provide you with the information?  I believe it has it.
