It is  largely unknown that basically any VP receiver is capable of operating
as a  standard positioning receiver, precise timer with TRAIM, or with ALL
the  bells and whistles including carrier phase. The code inside all
receivers  with the same version firmware (8.4, 10.0, etc.) is capable of
operating in  any mode. When the receiver boots it looks at the Option List
in the  receiver ID to see which options are active. Motorola liked to
pretend that  the timing and carrier phase receivers were more expensive
because of  specialized code, but in fact this was not the case. The code was
always  there, but the receiver would not use it if the option was not
present in  the receiver ID.

I take it that means a flash upgrade would just have to modify  the receiver 
ID, or even just the option list?  :-)
