Yes - this works for both version v0.3 and v0.4. It does not address the lap counting reliability issue with LC button pressed for v0.3 - that requires the resistor swap-out.
I would recommend waiting a couple of weeks before doing anything which is hard to reverse i.e. wait and see what others find regarding this mod. If you do decide to cut the grey wire... I would propose the cut is made 2-3cm back from the plug... so that a rejoining could be effected if ever desired.Can I also just cut the grey cable if I don't need backward compatibility? Seems to be easier, my Arc Pro is out of guaranty anyway
Over the months...no issues with sunlight or LED ceiling lighting - I had wondered whether unmasking the blade sensor would risk 50/60Hz (x2) lighting flicker noise - but no issues. I cant see any downsides... others may of course prove me wrong... time will tell.Hi Dr_C
Two questions comes to mind...
Any downside to this mod?
Does this mod address the issue of not register non black guide blades?
Just one point of further clarification...... this also fully addresses the non-black guide blade issue - any type/colour of guide blade can be used. The modification switches off the side-facing IR LEDs effectively tricking the blade sensor into thinking a blade is permanently blocking the IR beam.
