Aah.. I thought CT firmware is 10.2 based. Since most of firmware bug 
fixes and enhancements are integrated into 10.2 based firmware, we 
thought of get rid of 10.1 firmware to reduce code size. Moreover 
existing 10.1 official firmware has known issues. Is it possible to 
upgrade CT firmware to 10.2 WMI/HTT interfaces?
