I tried to patch my GRUB to read 0x00 as 0xFF some days ago, but it failed 
miserably.. but I only changed the ifs around the message. Maybe there is 
other things that need to be changed?

(Un)fortunately I do not have a DoC system at the moment (had to deliver all 
we had to customers) so further testing will have to wait some time until we 
have more systems available.
