Default [REQ] FW Update Version & Date mod...

I am at a point where I would really like to reformat & apply the 14 HDX 8.9 update in order to test a few things that I would like to try on a clean slate.. Unfortunately, it fails & is deleted after telling me that the version on my device is newer.

I have tried editing the FWUpdate zip, which includes a text file showing Ernie version numbers in several combinations of higher sequential numbers, but it still fails. I have also poured through hours of HEX & init files, try to determine where this data is called from.

Does anybody know where else the version/date data may be polling from with in the update.bin archive?

I don't know if you fixed it, but modifying the date in build.prop seems to work.
