    Fa_Pirer's file is Version 3.10 with the version number changed manually to 5.10. The principal being that the unit will read the gupdate.gcd file as a higher version that is presently loaded and be tricked into loading the lower version.

    If you wish to try the version-modified 3.10 gupdate.gcd file, you can download Fa_Piter's file [or make it yourself with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], first open V3.10 with RGN_Tool then check the box next to 'SW Version' and change it to a number higher than the existing version presently on your unit:

    Alpha100 rgn tool

    Remove any existing gupdate.gcd file from your alpha [back it up if you want] and replace it with the modded 3.10 gupdate.gcd file. Turn the unit on an see if it downgrades that way. You can also try by removing any existing gcd file then add the modded gcd to a clean microSD card in a root folder named Garmin, turn off unit, insert card and turn on.

    What you wish to do is illegal in Norway and many other EU countries:

    Regarding Alpha/Astro from US for use in EU, I do believe that transmitting on certain frequencies is illegal. Receiving is not illegal. The question is why Garmin doesn't put the blocking of frequencies on the collars.

    Is there any way to enable also new collar T5 or TT15. Firmware 3.10 supports only the older collars - TT10?

    @Alexander2010
    Thanks for that information. I've added a warning to initial post linking to yours above. Can you say some more about the changes with Alpha produced after July, is it due to hardware or unit software changes or both? What's the most reliable way for users to identify the production date of their unit?

    Note: Warning amended pending outcome.

    This company have modified SW for new version with support for T5 and TT15. There is a possibility to change region frequency too. But!
    Is there an adapted firmware for the Alpha 100 also available, so that using TT5 is possible with firmware 3.1. How would changing the frequency from US to EUR work?

    @mouintrcg
    I've moved your post here from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Please read all of this thread. Solution for earlier collars' use is found in here, posts #7>#11 but then T5/TT15 collars won't work. Read the news from geoplanet site quoted by Giomen later in your linked quote, but it will be at a cost too [not to mention illegal of course].
