Update for Dawn/Midnight v2 for WM1A/Z


Midnight (v2) and Dawn (v2) received an update.

Thanks again to Nayparm at www.npaudio.uk for his generous donation of a WM1A (after having to sell mine, unfortunately).

The StockRevert package now looks for a Dawn settings file in the CFW folder and makes sure that the region set in there is the same as the device region, and it now also reverts the Home page icons color to the default one. You will also see some entries in the boot_log.txt file after the StockRevert package was used.

If a Dawn settings file doesn't exist, it will look for a Midnight settings file. If a Midnight settings file also doesn't exist, there will be no changes to the region.

Also, there is now a "Lower" gain option available in the settings file (besides the "Normal" and "Higher" gain options).

Delete the existing settings file on your player so a new one will be generated.

To install this updated version you'll need to go back to the stock firmware first (sorry, I know it's annoying).





Next plans are:
- working on a WM1A-only Midnight version (hopefully all goes well)
- based on the mention above, have a mod solely for having the WM1Z sound signature on a WM1A

Basically, this would be a new approach to getting the WM1A even closer to the WM1Z sound signature.
Theoretically, the WM1A-only Midnight version should sound more alike to how Midnight sounds on a WM1Z.

In any case, I think Midnight sounds wonderful on the WM1A as it is!

- ZX300-based and WM1A/Z-based mods for ZX300
- WM1A/Z-based mods for A30/A40/A50
