I have this radio:

AKIRA AKUB MCC-B04W@U

The original firmware is:

KW-1004-AKIRA-1.0.3.62 build 09/12/08-1745

Exist a modified firmware for this model? Thanks!

This part is the most important. It tells what firmware branch the radio is using. In this case it is the generic KW-1004 firmware that is rebranded to Akira. Official firmware versions 1.0.3.58 and 1.0.3.62 are available in the download area.

I am working on a modified version of 1.0.3.62. This will take a bit of time.

If the bootloader modifications that I am working on (see other thread) work out correctly, then it might be possible to load the generic KW-1004 firmware which is currently at version 2.0.0.15. Right now you can only load Akira versions.

Quick update: nearly done with the Akira firmware modification.
Now testing to make sure all is fine.

The modified Akira firmware has been tested and is now available for download in the modified firmware section.

Just another question.
Most of the time, my audio cd bugges at half track no 5. Can you fix the pb ? My version firmware no is KW 1004 2.0.0.17 beta. Thx.

Penbex devices seem to be end of life..
The Penbex corporate website has been offline for months now.
The database is still there but it looks like it did not get any updates lately.
I will try to contact Penbex and see if anything can be done.
