Well, support for the S5 (A1080) is still going stong! Latest firmware is 1224 and adds some interesting and useful options during playback when pressing the enter key - well worth getting a hold of. Still no working web browser which is a disappointment but in all honesty not really an issue.
Enjama kindly sought out and posted a link for the latest firmware, which can be found below. One point, this firmware has a bug whereby the IP of the device must be manually entered to allow connection to a network - no biggie.
I would have to say, the S5 (and its other clone variations) is an excellent media player/streamer. The bricking issue is easily overcome and instructions are available on the web (looks a lot harder to do than it actually is in practice).http://speedy.sh/3qVTy/4ths-firmware...24-S800.dff.gz
