Same problem here, can't install the update or unlock the thingy in CMD. Tried the other method too, no luck. When I try to install Flashtool drivers i always get the "DPInst.exe doesn't execute..." message, or drivers just fail to install- depending on which compatibility mode I try to run.

Any ideas?
