Do I have G5 board?

I ordered my jb4 from m0dbarga1ns on 14 sep 2012. Anyone know if they were shipping with g5 at this time?

That's almost the exact date I ordered mine from m0dbarga1ns and mine isn't a G5. I didn't find out till a couple months later. Needless to say I should have ordered it from BMS directly

We were Alpha testing G5 in Sept/Oct. Production board was released IIRC in early/mid November.

Waste of money if you didn't buy the G5 board. Open up the control box with a small flat head and compare the inside of yours to this picture. G4 on the left, G5 on the right.

NO WONDER MY SHIT WAS JACKED UP!

I've previously posted about getting an engine light and limp mode while under full throttle in 3rd or 4th gear. I went to update my firmware today and noticed I had it set to g5 board. I put it on g4 board and sure enough, problem gone. Well damn.. Sucks that i ordered it only 5 months ago and have to pay 150 to update to g5.
