Header compression depends on the base firmware (1.01.77 in this case), and no, 1.01.77 does not support header compression. You would need 1.03 or higher, but I don't think WD released such a firmware for the G2...

Installed Successfully on G2 hardware with 1.01.77 stock firmware.
Here's a little walk through of my experience that may be helpful to any new cautious, nervous users.

Copied zip contents to root of Fat32 SanDisk thumbdrive (with special SanDisk partitions removed). All other files were moved into a folder named "NOT_UPDATE", also on root level of thumbdrive.

Stock Firmware recognized Firmware Upgrade on boot (after mentioning error that Autoplay Video could not be found {I removed it to the NOT_UPDATE folder}).

Chose to Upgrade Firmware to x_G2 version.

Blue "processing" logo, hardware reset to black.

WD TV logo comes back up, hardware hangs at this point.
I gave it 5 mintues, went to restroom, got a drink, still hanging.

I removed the AC cord from the unit. Reinserted it.

WD TV came back up, went to black flipped to gray, went back to black, then spot lighted Blue Hardwood background screen came up. :)

Blue processing logo, then a message, "Your device is being WDLX'ed, [don't remove or power cycle...]"
Progress Bar, another reboot. Long period of black screen. New WDLXTV logo comes up.

Then one more Black screen, then Blue Hardwood and full functionality! :)

Thank you so much for this upgrade, it went very smoothly. The first thing I noticed and hoped for is that my 2x2TB drives are completely recognized and I don't have to keep taking one out to get the other to be accessed. So now both drives are there and I tested it. They appear as two folders. Thanks so much!!! Now to figure out wireless....
