If it is merely a configuration setting alone that sets these machines apart, it does beg the question as to whether the hardware is uniform, only limited by firmware locking. It also suggests the possibility of a "God" menu already lurking on the machine that's beyond the Clinician's menu. Anyone had any luck on that front? I'm not advocating searching for Easter eggs because it could be anywhere and require any number of key presses/holds from within any specific menu setting, if it were available. But if there already is a God menu...littlebuddha wrote: ↑Wed Apr 15, 2020 12:46 pmI'm not involved in this project but as a software developer my take of the situation after reading the website is that essentially the software as shipped by ResMed has full capabilities for all treatment modes. However they have turned off certain modes based on how much they were paid for the device. Ie it's a configuration setting that tells the software what to offer the patient.
So maybe the only thing that ResMed would have to do in order to ship an "unlock firmware" is take the existing software, change configuration settings, and package it up for installation on hardware. It's reasonably likely that Philips does the same thing. Also granted I'm ignoring the FDA approval process that may or may not apply.
I'm seriously considering buying a new AutoSet just to play with this.
It makes sense about the CPAP vs Autoset. If it's the same hardware, why pay more? In fact, why not buy a used CPAP and give it a shot on that first, littlebuddha?Dog Slobber wrote: ↑Wed Apr 15, 2020 12:57 pmWhy would you buy a new AutoSet, instead of an AS 10 CPAP?
My biggest concern with this process is none of my firmware versions on my machines are SX567-401, the process appears to be:
Though, there is a note about contacting them if you're not on SX567-401.
- save firmware,
- flash patched firmware
Dogslobber, I'm not sure I understand your reference, having only hacked android firmware a couple times casually following a recipe. Are you saying you have versions for all the various AirSense 10 firmwares except Autoset, or are you saying it would be difficult to restore the original firmware if you decided you wanted to go back to factory? Or something else? EDIT: Ah -- the "For Her" mode is not available from the airbreak firmware. Is that it?
