If you like the blue lettering you can use the firmware intended for models with the 13xxx serial number or the N3 firmware. But this will cause the messed up grey screens after the start.
I think grey screen is the reason for the two N1 firmwares.
I think I'm going back to the official N1 firmware on my N1. Battery time seems to be worse with N3 firmware and the extreme possible loudness levels may damage the player (although I only use volumes between 8-12 with my BA200).
It was said that you can't install the drivers on Win 8. It works if you set "Disable Driver signature Enforcement" in the startup settings. Win 8 may crash after you close the HiSoundTool.
