Re: LP1 firmware is now open-sourced

Man, it would be awesome to have a custom programmed Lp1. I love the Lp1 
but have been frustrated with the fact that new software versions often 
leave old commands behind and that a large part of what it does has no 
relevance to what I need. If someone gets proficient at that I for one 
would have budget for a custom version.
