Morning and Welcome!
Think you are mixing apples and tamarillos.
The FWs aren’t interchangeable between models. Each detector has specific FW written specially for it.
You’re in the right section of the forum.
The R3 may not be the best choice for you needs in that it can’t get low enough in frequency but, read on
Speak with @Mithheru before you try flashing your device.

Also, please use the proper terminology. You have a radar detector. You stated ".......im at a standstill to get the radar working.........."

It cuts down on the confusion. Kind of like if you went to the hospital complaining of knee pain but kept pointing at your elbow.

Be cautious about trying to flash a firmware not made for your specific model and or regional area.. (as pointed out above) You could brick it.

Were it that simple then the manufacturers would make one model and load whatever database they were shipping THAT UNIT to...
