    I am a user of zoom b1on. its a useful and helpful little thing. with the software TONELIB,i can even ajust patches personally, easily. but i d like to try a bigger one- b3n. unfortunately I hate the red cover of it, A new idea comes. can i reflash G3n with the firmware of B3n. absolutely soon, I tried . haha,then the updating program warned me illegal type of device and canceled. so i d love to know if any one had succeed with it?thanks for your sharing。(=^▽^=)

    Might be possible if someone can manage to hack the program, though it is possible too that the hardware and operating system is bit different in the two units and won't allow you to do it unless you make physical modifications to it.

    As of current, I know of no known ways to do it though.

    Is that really such a big deal (hate?) to go to all that trouble? You could always paint the case... Or maybe get one of each and swap the guts...

    If this is possible then you could go with the larger g5N and convert it to a bass model. That would be something I would be interested in. Anybody familiar with the tonelab functionality? can you load actual new effects nto your pedals with it?

    Essentially idea is: via effect manager put all effects from B series into G series firmware. I've seen this done for b1xon and now it is suggested even for newer ...Four hardware.
