That is not true,... All DMS-Chips (be-ing it 3 or 4; Lite or PRO) support loading ANY ELF from DEV.1 and DEV.2 directly (for DEV.2 and DMS3, it depends on the FW-Version).

Btw.: The 'DMS HDD Explorer'-ELF in it's newer Version (1.31, or something) is even compatible to all chips, just because nothing was written to the chip anymore (to 'activate' DEV.2, which is still the case for MI and all clones...).
