• 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:

The program only wants a registration key if you are updating from 1.x firmware to 2.x firmware. If you are updating the 996T to that latest 1.x firmware in order to get the 996T to a revision that will give you the ESN checksum, then you just ignore the box for the registration key.

Once you update it and then get the ESN and the ESN checksum from the 996T, you'll enter all that information as requested on the website.

The website asks for the LAST 9 DIGITS of the ESN, the serial number (from the back of the scanner) and the checksum. Enter all the information correctly and you'll then get a registration key and a link to the 2.x firmware. Use the registration key for the 2.x firmware, because you are going from 1.x to 2.x.

There's already a big thread about all this that you can read for better instructions.
