Firmware v6.24.2008 seems to be the most current version floating around unmodified HP-20b's in the field.

HP software v6.242 (v6.24.2008) - 24-Jun-2008:

File: flash.bin
MD5 checksum: 7387a2cabec7dc53ca4224537d52327c

MD5 checksum: 08e1b75924aca69ee0be33ee482ffcf9
cksum: 4280875116 12288

Method of verifications

Images were downloaded three times (JTAG clock rate of 380kHz, 100kHz, and 58kHz). All three images were bit-for-bit identical. MD5 checksum and cksum values were for the entire 128kB flash (or 12kB ROM, in the case of rom.bin).

(Someone else please verify that the dumps are correct…)
