If that was the case, a 3rd party secrman module would work with it, no ? How about testing loading a secrman from another console on it ? I think I remember someone mention he tried that on a tool and the mechacon actively refused to complete the commands related to file decryption. By the way, the DTL-H10000S supposedly will be identical to the DTL-H10000 besides the fact that it will have the retail top cover instead of the "TEST" top cover. It's so the unit can be used on trade shows (for publicity pictures). It's desirable that units used on trade shows reflect the brand identity, which the usual development hardware does not need to.
