Its also possible to buy programmed Eproms for the QV 20K, GT and QV Q2 at Ebay etc.
They vary in price and shipping costs.

To be able to use EFTP patches from Charlie Hall, the minimum is the QV plus 2.0
To check your current version: hold down [GLOBAL] and [PROGRAM]

Sometimes its necessary to modify the board slightly in order to make the EFTP patches work properly. It depends on the boardversion. Charlie has documented that very well.
