    Hello!
    Yes, it is possible. If you have one or both devices, we can add support and test it with your assistance :)

    Great :)
    Please connect Mini to PC and open NToolbox Firmware Updater. It should be detected as "[E198] Unknown Device".
    Then please put device in Safe Mode (see Manual, p. 7.3). Now Firmware Updater should detect Firmware Version as 0.00. Please write which PID is shown before "Unknown Device", or post a screenshot.
    To exit from Safe Mode you can press "-" button, reset button or restore firmware with original Twisp Firmware Uploader.

    I'm not sure where to find the PID you mention? When I plug in the device in Safe Mode, it just gets detected as "[E198] Unknown Device" with no other info.

    If I plug it in in safe mode on my linux box I get this - in case it helps ;)

    Excellent, thank you! E198 is the PID I mean, it seems that device have proper LDROM, therefore we should not have a problem.
    Please test attached build.
