The link works now. Interesting, I guess they don't want any more lawsuits against them.

I will download it when I get home...

Does anybody know if this will allow a user to overide the European Union volume cap? At the moment, I use goPod. I suppose if it works, it would allow me to remove the cap without potentially invalidating my 5G's warranty...
