Hi support,


I obtained my JM Badge (JMBadge) Rev C at FTF China 2008.


Just aware that Microsoft has an interesting stuff for Windows 7, with the introduction of the newer version known as JMBADGE2008-B (aka Rev D). The only difference I know is adding the the ambient light sensing (ALS) in order to support the Windows 7 Sensor development kit.


From the software/firmware perspective, I want to know if it is possible to run the Windows 7 sensor code package on Rev C board without the ambient light support.


And, from the hardware perspective, is it possible to modify the Rev C board to JMBADGE2008-B (aka Rev D) by adding the ambient light sensor (ALS).  Any other things I need to mod?


Wish to find someway to extend the usage of Rev C, as there are already a large group of Rev C owner aquired through the previous FTF events.
