  1. Hello, I think you cannot flash Firmware E5786s-32 on this product. I try several times but i have : “Error Code 10 Find Port Failed”. I think that Vodafone have put security on their firmware, like R216, and you cannot flash another firmware general.

    Please can you confirm That ?

    Thank you,
