Not sure if theyre anything to do with the BN versions either, but for the time being I ll put HA and BN ROMs in the same folder on the fileserver.
To add to the confusion:
I flashed the firmware and MCU update, the one you downloaded
MCU is now MTCB-HCT-V2.70

I also believe @Malaysk's firmware has the option to boot into recovery (?) - but firstly change your existing firmware.
Here's what I did.
I did the *#hct#root# trick to get root. Then downloaded reboot recovery from the play store. I plugged a USB keyboard into the USB port on the unit, and navigated through recovery with that.
