A Search for the way to restore the original preset software to “bricked” units of the limited edition legendary DSP 4500

Those who own a DSP 4500 who have by default accidentally erased the factory presets know what is meant by the term a “bricked” 4500. To restore these units to original factory presets requires a software that has been lost to posterity, for unknown reasons, that nonetheless renders all 4500’s who have deleted factory presets as “bricked” meaning useless. From all reports from top Eventide repair technicians around the world, this unfortunate situation can be remedied if there’s ONE working 4500 that someone owns who would volunteer to send it to a designated certified Eventide expert to use as the one working model from which they will  re-create the “tools” and prototype, from which the original factory presets can then be restored to any “bricked:” unit. For the sake of my own bricked 4500 and everyone else out there facing the same situation,  and for the continuation of the DSP 4500 legacy, we are appealing to anyone with a working 4500 and/or, anyone with a bricked 4500 to post whatever information, leads or offers for sale of any 4500, working or not, to comment to this post, with the intent that the goal is to keep the future 4500 legacy alive and working, and with a future, rather than to see it remain in limbo, for want of access to one software tool that originally was lost seemingly by accident. The Eventide experts here already confirm inn advance that once there is a working unit to re-create the next generation software tools from it can definitely be done and they can do it. We just need one volunteer 4500 "savior" to step up and the full information / instructions will then be supplied. Thank you all for your comments, suggestions, offers in advance.
