Options Installed on this Flashcode:


Q806/G806 IMBE / APCO-25 Digital Operation
H14/G114 Digital ID Display
H35/G48 Conventional Operation
Q387 Conventional voting scan

What i want to know is what flashcode upgrades to i need to make to the radio to make it function properly with the encryption module i just bought - DES-OFB and DES-XL encryption module with 5.05.02 firmware.

Any help will be appreciated.

You don't need any upgrade for encryption to work. Install the module and under radiowide/secure just enable secure hardware enabled.

Now, if you want multikey operation then you need a flash upgrade. Since the 5000 cannot be field hacked you need to purchase it from your Motorola salesman.
