Well I got confirmation that the boards I purchased and had sent directly to smiths already have the R2 configuration on board, which I'm super stoked for. I'll know I'll be watching different shades of yellow/amber/orange flash before my eyes as I relieve my dreams of being a Jedi...in full costume, while the neighbors grab their cell phones and call the police because xxx hath frozen over.
Neighbor "Hello officer...there is a jedi fighting invisible sith in front of my house."
Officer "Mam, please calm down, we've done our research and apparently he is just using an R2 configured igniter saber, its not real mam, it just looks like it is. You can go to bed now."
Neighbor "Are you sure officer, I see different colored blaster deflections as well, I can't just be imagining this. I swear I see storm troopers."
Officer "No mam, thats another feature of the board, everything will be fine. We've been fielding these calls all night."
oh and so other people can see the answer in case they don't review other threads

I just got my Igniter version 1 with color extender, 2 weeks ago, can this one be upgraded ? ( I havent even pulled it out of the pretty pink plastic yet)
In a short answer, yes
If you send back a board on its own (not in a hilt) I can do it. Also, if the four pads are exposed even in a hit I could as well. I'm still working out the details of it but please send me a PM and we can discuss.
Glad to know the option to get it flashed and updated is available. I'd hate to have to buy another board, after already paying for one, just so I could get the new features.
