You need to register your card.

And then wait for an updated core release that includes your card ID.

Hello,
   
  Thanks for this information, I put the core 2.9 with coffin r51, I have to wait for the core 3.0 to have colors or a nice administrator will give me the possibility to download a version including my ID?
   
  Regards

2.9.1 was released a week ago so there will likely be a 2.9.2 for new registrations before 3.0 (The next full release will likely be 2.10 with possibly Pamela audio and some other things).

You'll need a USB blaster to update with an interim release containing the new registrations if you can't wait for a full release update executable.

Hm, sorry to interject as this doesn't really concern me, but I can see only V600 2.9 build updated. Yesterday I wanted to share the same link, but I assumed that 2.9.1 build won't work with Fabrice's V500+ (or am I missing something)? Just heads up not to flash the wrong core.

Thanks Przemyslaw Tkaczyk

I had seen this point and I will wait for a interim version for my V500+ ! ;-)

I'm expecting my first a500 vampire soon as well. While I do understand the motivation for the registration system, I think the way it's currently implemented is rather user unfriendly. Especially if it seems, I first have to wait for an update and then also have to buy a USB blaster :(

  Hope it will improve in future. Other option was that you would not be able to use anything unless registered (getting newer cores then GOLD2 only if registered, not publicly). USB Blaster isnt just cheap, it will come very, very handy.
