Comment 1 Larry Finger 2012-11-01 18:04:42 EDT
That warning occurs because your firmware has an incorrect "date" word. If you use the openfwwf product, the date word must be 0xFFFF. For the proprietary firmware, the date must not be 0xFFFF.

Which firmware are you attempting to use? If it is the standard version, then reinstall it.
