    This is untested software, as I have not had the chance to use it myself. But it is supposed to be the 'unlocked software' for ALL Flexradios.

    I know that when I got my SDR-1000, I couldn't find the unlocked/general coverage modified software anywhere. I searched Google several times with no luck whatsoever. Then a forum member who found this file shared the location/link with me. I'm pretty sure that the WWRF is the only forum site that got it on the internet first!

    After you download the file, you will have to rename it this file in order to restore it. Just right click on the file and then click on 'rename'. Then all you have to do is change the ".zi" ending of the file name to ".zip" by adding the letter 'p'. Without the quotes - of course.
    Done - file restored.
    That's it...

    I downloaded the file and after configuring the software it works fine. However once I shut the software down and restart it, I get a fatal error. Has anyone seen this or know what could cause this? Thanks for your help.

    Delete your database and start over, you've probably got a setting that the software does not like. Its the only time I've seen that error.

    SDR-1000 file fix

    This zip file is complete with the missing AODB file that was posted earlier. This is a working program.
