DSO201 firmware query newbie

Hi All,
I have just bought a DSO201 and are a newbie to be honest with this sort of thing
I have been playing around trying to upgrade my firmware, hopefully it needed updating
Anyway I found myself upgrading to ver 4.11
It seemed to be the only one I could get working
However it displays this annoying 'demo only' bouncing all over the screen
What and how do I need to upgrade to to get rid of this demo only message ?

Appreciate your time and knowledge

Have a read here and provide hardware details about your device.

Have you tried v4.30?

The issue you describe could be DFU compatibility issue or device license.

I recommend you try Benf 3.64 V3 firmware which works on new DFU V3.45D. The patch was done by rimidalv007 here and I fixed minor hex bug.

One thing I will mention is if the DSO has onboard 2M flash then BenF firmware features related to SD card such as Save BMP/Load Buff will not work.

It seems it would possible to patch in new functions but I don't have access to DSO with onboard flash to try.
