Retron 5 0.3.0 Update missing?

I went to install the newest versions of firmware and system software on my Retron 5, but I started with the firmware update to 2.4. After I added that update, I went to get the latest system software, which is 0.3.0, but the official website that it should be on (, the first download link) appears to be broken. The download link brings me to an xml page that says "access denied". Without the new firmware update, my Retron doesn't allow me to play anything, and only comes up with a message that demands the latest firmware. I tried a factory reset, but the system still wants an update.

Is there another place that the 0.3.0 update is hosted? Is there another way around this? Has anyone else had this problem?

I had a different problem (posted on here a few minutes ago) I saw your post and followed the link the 2.41 update (I could apply that) but the 0.3.0 d/l that I have from hyperkins main site still wont install and I'm now in the same position as you, I think their source file is corrupt

the retron update and the software update are two different things. you install the software updates like a factory reset where the retron updates install normally when you have to send them your dat file
