WD had a warning that once you update the firmware you won't be able to roll back.  However, I believe some members found that if you fist use 1.05.04 it may roll back to that and from there roll back to custom firmware....not sure though as I have not updated mine and never will :)

B-Rad is working on a new firmware boot that will not flash your device.  This is for the Live Gen 3 but once it is refined, he plans on doing for other devices with latest firmware such as yours.  This will give you similar to WDLXTV but without the actual flash.
