Firmware on Shaw provisioned Thompson DCM475

Any chance this firmware update could stick and not be superseded by Shaw's sh*tty firmware? Is the blocking of a cable modem's stats page controlled by a custom firmware (from Shaw) or is the DOCSIS provisioning from the cable ISP responsible for this bullsh*t?

I'm pretty sure it is in the configuration file, along with what speed of service you are getting, and what priority on the network you should get.

Whether the firmware flash sticks or not depends entirely on whether Shaw is actively pushing the firmware version they want you to be using.
