Brand new in box, bought 2 to reduce shipping costs. The charger has an american plug on it and it has the US firmware so the fingerprint reader is disabled. You can flash other firmware no problem, did it with mine. I can flash for you after payment but don't accept responsibility if I brick the thing.

The fingerprint reader being disabled is a major problem...
It's really simple to flash new firmware, takes 10 min and you're incredibly unlikely to break it, I just don't want to open the box to do it unless the buyer wants it.

The UK default firmware is actually much better anyway, no branding or bloatware.
