Default Harris to Hytera Firmware Change

I have a Harris Momentum I want to convert to Hytera. Are there any documented procedures on how to do this? The Harris is currently using A5.00.15.001 firmware.

Thanks

Tim

Have you done a search on the subject? I have seen a couple of articles while browsing.

Can it be done? Yes.... I've done a few of them. However it's tricky and can be a royal pain in the butt. Basically the older the firmware you have, the easier it is. I did it on a radio with V4 firmware and it wasn't too bad (you could just trick the updater into accepting the Harris model # as valid). The 2nd one I did I *think* was v5.something and it was definitely trickier.

The Harris radio has A5.00.15.001 in it. I'm all ears if you recall how you did the change.

Thanks,

I actually have one of both. The mobile is running A5 firmware and the handheld is running A7 firmware.
