while I agree with you that Toshiba's official policy is that the Xs32's system firmware is not upgradable -- and they've told me that when I've talked to cust serv -- there seems to be some ambiguity to whether the Xs32's system firmware is actually locked.
version 1417 and 1315 drive firmware has been released, but I have yet to find it available for download.
I have a copy of 1315 and 1417. I got them from this thread: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=312999
the download link is no longer working but it was when I originally found the thread.
but, they're from the Jp Toshiba site and I never tried one, even tho person(s) on that thread have had success using them.
so, if the system firmware is not upgradable then why (according to that thread) did Toshiba Jp offer a ZL ISO on their site!? one explanation I can think of is maybe it's only applicable to the Jp Xs32 being open to system firmware upgrades.
btw, the "ZL1500J_S.iso" referenced in his message was not in the archive I downloaded. I had given a thought of trying it just for laughs, back when my Xs32 was dead (hdd), but I emailed the author and he said he never downloaded that particular file.
I dont know the forum rules about attaching Firmwares but I assume its not allowable. unless a Mod says not to, I'll post some links here to the files as soon as I get them uploaded to a file hosting site.
