Today I tried again with firmware 007 and after there was an error message for the first time I started the flash again straight away and lo and behold, it worked and I'm now on FW 007. You don't have to understand why it is 10x not working and then suddenly it works. I really didn't do anything different at the time ...
well.. after trying this on V7, i was able to unbrick my XL2720Z.. !! :D Thank you for posting this! I was on the verge of buying a 2nd one to replace this one.. I can confirm from being on V2 and now on V7 that the AMA Low tweak does work! It's glorious

Glad it worked. I can't help with Linux anymore because I haven't used that method in years. I just use my Mstar ISP device.

For newer monitor linux is outdated best what works is aliexpress MSTAR device in linux you can brick and unbrick but not all monitors work in there. What did work was 2411z to me but not 2536 it detected but gived lot errors so i considered dangerous to continue.

MSTAR ISP device on ali not expencive too but that works no issues.

How do I know if there is a new firmware version for my monitor and where can I download it? I have XL2430 with a firmware v010-20161201

Hello there.
I have a xl2720z V1, and I would really love to update it.
I'm still gathering some info to do so but IDK if I should install V4 or a newer like V8.
Is there any reason to avoid the latest versions? or any V2+ is perfect for BlurBluster?.

Edit: Sorry if this may sound dumb, a newer version being better is the first idea for most people but,
there is so many companies blocking features like overclocking with newer versions that I just want to know.
Thanks in advance.
