    I moved your question into a new thread. Please do not post unrelated questions to old threads. Otherwise, welcome to the forum.

    The 5100 is a portable radio. The 5300 is a mobile radio. Completely different platform/hardware. No.

    the screen comes up with V2.00 and then goes to talkgroups and channels. Don't have programming cable yet to find out other information. Looking for a programming cable, have PCC 2.12.6 to program as soon as I get a cable.

    All help is appreciated.

    Also the simple programming cables etc (kawa) etc.. will not flash the mobile firmware. You need the RPI box etc.

    The simple Kawa cable I have flashes the mobiles. I have flashed 2 or 3 of the version 4s with the latest version 4 firmware. You just have to put the radio in flash mode.

    If it doesn't show the firmware version number then you have a REV 4. The first run mobiles EFJ made. The other way to tell for sure is to hold the PTT while powering on the radio. If C.O.D.E. is displayed then you for sure have a rev 4.
    You will need to use a max version of PCC 1.22.0.4 on them and will have to set the baud rate to 9600. They will not communicate at any other level.
