Hi, If the moderators believe that this post in any way breaks forum rules, please feel free to take it down and I am deeply sorry for breaking the rules. I saw a promotion by a Redfox competitor today, "The Monkee", if I am allowed to say, describing a new UHD firmware downgrading tool that "will" allow easy firmware downgrades of UHD friendly drives. This maybe an interesting alternative for some that fear the other methods described in another section of this forum. I wonder if the developers of redfox have thought about doing something like this and I am concerned that Redfox isn't branching out and providing solutions, especially in the UHD area, that competitors claim to have. I have read assertions, whether true, or not, I cannot say, that the competitors have come to the point of almost cracking uhd disks. I know that uhd protection hasn't truly been cracked and that they use a firmware hole, so please don't go down that rat hole. It seems to me that perhaps competitors have better uhd ripping options than redfox and that from "our" perspective that redfox hasn't advanced and grown. I am concerned regarding that matter and I know that if something is in the works that the developers can say little about it. I was happy to see that James and crew came out with a UHD enhancement to allow ripping of UHD disks, but to what I understand, that enhancement relies on the work and cooperation of another product. My joy was somewhat diminished. Please correct me if I am wrong. I have held out, I guess over the last year now, hoping that James and crew could come out with their own non-dependent product. I know that the possibility of truly cracking UHD protection is almost nil, but I wish redfox would do more to compete and enhance their product. Sorry if I offended James and crew, or the moderators, but it would be nice if we could be allowed to have an open friendly discussion of our perceptions, hopes, and desires for what we would like to see redfox do in the future and our fears of what we have not seen lately. Maybe it will entice the people at Redfox to move forward and provide something to us hinting that there maybe something in the works and that there will be news about it eventually. I can hope? I hope that this thread is not taken down and I have seen the moderators here allow people to freely discuss competitors in the past. I just know that other product forums have squashed such discussions, pulled down threads, concerning discussions that commented positively on competitive products, or even suggested a lack of support, or advancement of their product. I hope that this is not true of this forum and I don''t want to get in trouble with the Redfox crew. I just have some concerns on what I have seen, or not seen, in this software field.
