• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have noticed some discussion on "another brand" and editing that firmware. Has anybody tried this with Uniden firmware at all?

Hello,

There was some discussion about removing the obfuscation on Uniden firmware and someone (not me) was apparently successful at doing it for one model.

My understanding is Uniden uses different hardware platforms for their scanner models, so moving firmware between models will not work. Even when they share the same processor, how the I/O pins on the processor are connected can be different.

The Pro-18/PSR-800/Pro-688/WS-1080 share the same basic hardware platform with minor changes. The firmware itself is not modified. The obfuscation is modified so it can be loaded in other scanners of the same type.
