Default Communal SPMA3065 Firmware Cable

I ended up with an extra SPMA3065 firmware programming cable. Rather than sell it, I would like to start a "pass it on" program with this little bad boy.

I will initiate "passing it on" exactly as I would like it to be repeated. Please, please follow these steps:

1) I will mail this SPMA3065 to the first person in the CONUS that replies in this thread as wanting to use it. I will pay for the postage to that person.

2) When that person is finished using it (hopefully in a reasonable amount of time, maybe a week or less?) they will post in this thread that it is available again.

3) The current holder will then pay for the shipping (as cheaply or expensively as they want) to send it to the first person that replies in this thread that would like to use it.

4) Go back to step 2.

Please note!!! If you do not want to participate in exactly this process, please do not become part of the process. I do not want to see this thing permanently belonging to one person. This is not a giveaway. This is designed so that the absolute most amount of people can get use from it.

RULES EDIT****If anyone from outside the CONUS would like to get in on this, the decision will be purely at the discretion of the current holder as to whether or not they want to incur the cost of it leaving the US. This will be the only acceptable reason to NOT send it to the first person who calls dibs. If the cable does leave the US, it will then be the recipient's responsibility to ship it to back to whoever is next, regardless of location.

**** We will not be establishing a waiting list or line. The time to try to be the next guy is after the cable is listed here as "available". When you see that, jump on it! Until then, just keep on the lookout. Happy hunting folks!********

This is my way of helping the first batch 180cfx owners out because the initial firmware was junk, and having to buy a cable kind sucks. This is not, however, exclusive to first batch owners. Anyone is eligible.

So, who wants it first?

I will ship priority to the next person. Should be 2 days anywhere in the US. Awesome of you, by the way.

Well played. DBW gets it. PM me with a mailing address. I am mailing from an APO, so this initial sending of it will take longer than the rest. Expect about a week to 10 days.

And it begins!

I'll take spot #2 (if I need it).

How do I tell which firmware I have now? I'm sure I need the cable just to determine that, right?

I appreciate the jump, but I would prefer to not establish a big long line.

My intent is that as soon as it is listed as "available" the first person that posts up will get it. This will also serve to keep it kind of exciting!

So, blackkat, keep yours eyes peeled, as soon as DBW is done and posts it as available, try to be the first! No promises!

Good luck!

PS, blackkat, yes you will need a cable to determine which firmware is currently in the RX.

Oh, I misunderstood. I'll just buy one then.

Thanks for what you're doing - very stand-up move!

That's the way to do it... well played...

Horizon could earn a few brownie points by tossing another 5-10 units in this thread to help take care of initial issues.... just a thought.

OK, I updated the OP with a rule change so that Canadians are not left out in the cold (see what I did there?).

Also, while this is not going to be a rule, I am going to set the precedence by showing full transparency here in the thread.

I will post the tracking number tomorrow when I send it out. This way, everyone will be able to see when it gets to it's destination and will know exactly how long someone has had the cable. Feel free to razz the current holder if it has been "too long".

I encourage future cable holders to do the same!

Package sent! Let the games begin!

Cost to ship: $2.32 via USPS First Class in a padded envelope.
Here is (most of) the tracking # 957421112177435043****

I didn't include the whole thing because,unfortunately, I realized that it shows the zipcode of the departure location. DBW is now in the circle of trust.

Instead, I will post the tracking updates here as I see them.

Sometimes the shipping from here only shows a departure and an arrival.
