Has anybody hacked the firmware for an expansion module? (dx513/517)

Question

Just curious...

 

I have a legit ds1515+ and I'd like to add more drives, but man the expansion modules are expensive for a simple box with esata splitter and psu ($600Cdn).  I'd love to build my own expansion module for 1/5th of the price, but I understand that the expansion modules have some kind of custom firmware on it to ID itself to the main synology box and unlock proper access (so it see's it as a expansion module, and not an external drive).
