Damager: Check again, as mine's VTU00M. Looks like you have 1 too many 0?
No, that's my fault - it's definitely 2 0's, I just typed it from memory.
Damager: Mine is dated 05/12
Not sure whether to wait.. or flash that bootloader fix? Got mine off trademe.. Might have to hit up the seller for a receipt or something, or can providing serial number somewhere confirm the retailer?
Yeah, just see if the seller has it - tell them that you know it's not their fault!
And my 200 days is 200 days of usage since I bought it, not age of the chip. It's usage that causes the problem, not age.
