    Hey there, I was really hoping to do the firmware flash today and just can't seem to get my registration approved over at Netkas. I tried last night twice, using 2 different legit email and haven't heard a peep.

    Does that normally take a while, and is the file posted anywhere else?

    Thanks.

    It isn't, no (or rather, it shouldn't be) as it is only offered by Netkas to registered members.

    Personal message me with an email address and I will send you my copy of the file that I downloaded.

    It IS available elsewhere without registering on Netkas...

    HERE, it was posted along with the netkas link, on May 12, 2011. Just click the left link where it says "here and here", and it is a direct download.

    It's been available on more than just netkas for very nearly as long as it's been available on netkas... just three days after it was on netkas, actually.

    ----------

    I'm a member. I asked about sharing it, and the question was ignored. Neither a yay nor a nay on the subject. Nobody there seems to care one way or another.

    So, if you want it, download from this link which is the same as the one on yourdailymac.net, and it will be yours without any further hassle.

    Interesting. Thanks. No idea why I can't register there.

    Site issues, possibly...?

    Maybe somehow related: I noticed from time to time that the website wouldn't even come up (this was when I was trying to get the very same download). Anyhoo the browser would give an error like it couldn't find the site.
