I wondered if the non pro would run the pro ROM without issue. Good! And I assume you didn't discover it actually had the radio bits, just disabled in the non pro ROM? I would wonder if it actually would cost enough to include the one or two chips necessary that they would have them deliberately left out as I have seen features simply disabled in ROM before rather than omitted in hardware (for instance to permit import into certain locales). I had wondered if that may have been the case with the non pro.
Hi, I had a thought about this... It might worth a try. It seems, from what I could see, that you only need to find a way to mount the antenna (in a water-proof way) and where to solder the wires on motherboard. The app is there and opens but I could not test anything.
But then I also have two midland g7 pro that work on 0.5/3 watts AND a baofeng uv5-rtp (1/4/8 watts) so I won't spend too much time for such mod.
