Older versions of the firmware

Seems that Amazon recently has blocked downloading firmwares older than 5.8.5.

You can get 5.8.5, say for PW3, at
https://s3.amazonaws.com/firmwaredow...hite_5.8.5.bin

but cannot get 5.8.2 at
https://s3.amazonaws.com/firmwaredow...hite_5.8.2.bin

and older.

Not so.
You just discovered the point where Amazon changed storage URL patterns.

Just capture the actual download URL you are forwarded to in the Step #7 spoiler list.
Those are still working.
Change the version string in the old pattern if changing the version string in the new pattern does not work.

My re-direction there is done for three reasons:
To change the visible name -
To let the re-director count the number of downloads by visible name pattern -
Filter out specific abuse patterns.

Amazon has not published why they changed the visible name / URL pattern.

= = = =

Thanks for the report.
I do want to hear about it if any of the Step #7 links stop working.
(Which means I will then have to modify my pattern generator in my .htaccess file.)

I only went back to the most recent 5.7 -
Does that list need to go back to the most recent 5.6 (or older)?

Also -
All step #7 links end up in the Amazon cloud.

If required, I could mirror those packages on the leased cloud servers.
(The ones I am paying for that host the factory image files.)
