Sounds like Whistler took a reasonable way to provide a solution to this issue IMO, considering the circumstances of how this hack was obtained and distributed.

And all but 5 of them disagree with you. What Whistler did for the people who hacked their computers is fair. They're passing along the actual cost of the hardware needed in addition to the cost of the firmware update.

Pay it, don't pay it. No one cares, but it would be nice if you stopped your whining.

Who's whinning? Not me... My DMR works perfectly fine and very happy with the tools created. I'm smart enough to not update things every time an update appears. I wait for suckers that ALWAYS believe in what companies say is gospel. So I'm good.

I'm speaking for those individuals that didn't know any better, those that press the update button every time without knowing the repercussions of it..

Big difference between whinning and advocating for those that are not technically inclined!

Either way, I don't have to spend another penny with Whistler...

Even though this doesn't effect me, I'm satisfied that Whistler is offering a fix and a upgrade channel for those whose scanners are locked. Hopefully ALL sides have learned from this and can move on.
