First some clarification. I have a totally different understanding of the
So let me check with folks before clarifying.
In any case, I will find out the information on the real differences. And
also if any apps actually use the LEDS.
I know some of the a5/a6 changes were made just to make it easier for us to
As far as the goodies in the box go. Whether it's an A5 or a A6, the box

I'm still sorting through some issues.

Sometime down the road I will pull out the Sdcard and try to put in a

Well, for me it's important to have a good hardware, if it has some known
issue i would prefer that they sould be solved, if this LED bug could be
fixed with a simple transistor replacement, this transistor is in the
GTA02v5 box and it's possible for a normal guy with a little soldering
skills to replace this transistor it's not a problem (read something like
"if i can do that it's ok :D").
If the issue is something that can't be solved it's something that goes
opposite of what is GTA02 for, a solid hardware platform.
"Every commercial product has bug" it's not a good point.
I'll buy it if it's fixable, waiting for a word from OM :D
(Despite everything i really like the OM approach!! Go Go OM Guys and
remember, may the source be with you!! :D)
