Well, I have an Asus E616P3 OEM at home that didn't work with retail flasher, so I didn't even try the NEC. I guess I should have tried the official 3.04 first anyway, but no one told me to this whole time at this forum and the Firmware Page forum. I'll remember in the future to try this first though. Thank you.
