      Woo hoo.
      Congrats! Just for reference, I have a Canadian R and mine doesn't show the orange ESC off text either.

      You and OP have Kessy, you and I are 2012, so not due to Kessy, probably a 2013 thing then, like OP suggested.

      Having followed this drama since before I got my car back in April I must say it's pretty cool to see it get re-solved right here on Vortex. Nice work you guys. You must be so stoked!

      I guess I must be one of the weirdos who wants hacks/whatever this is released to the word freely but potentially rewarded with a bounty system like they do with new smartphones.

      This is honestly great news. I'm going to assume it can be reversed easily if needed?

      Is it done via VCDS, since we know it requires the cable itself?

      One part of me hopes that he won't be charging for this since it's an AWESOME way to give back to the community, but it would also be a great gesture from our side to donate to the guy.

      I have a full non-ebay version Ross-Tech cable so once the instructions on how to do this go out, I'm offering to do it for anyone in my area that want's it done and doesn't have the cable!
