I have got the firmware for 188.8.131.52.
I have added it to the GitHub repository here
, under releases.
(BTW anyone can upload to this repo, please add anything that might be of use to other users)
Backstory about this:
A user called Jerome2023 joined XDA and posted in this thread that he had the firmware and would share it for $30 transfer via PayPal, obviously this screams of scam.
The only evidence was a screenshot of a zip file (not even the files inside).
When I asked for more info or photos as proof it was legit (Like the ones I have included below), he refused claiming he was insulted by my lack of trust... on the internet.
He was then banned from the forum by admins.
He claimed the total cost to get the updater was $150 from a local camera store, I already know of 2 other people who have sent him $30 so if it really did cost $150 then at least he has made $90 back.
Honestly I don't know why he want about it in this way, I am sure everyone here would have got together the reimburse him for the cost and effort he went to get it.
I do not want anyone to be out of pocket for finding the firmware, especially since that firmware should have been made available for free by Light, but I suspect he was trying to make some money out of it.
I have heard that he did genuinely wanted to help people but sending the money was a 'trust' exercise.
