As i understand it (extrapolating wildly from little data),
the version numbers in 494 and Starfinders depends more upon the
flavor of telescope the controller was delivered with
(4504's and  114EQ-DH4's have a special version hard-patched to *only*
do German Equatorial Mounts, for example... "Telescope Model" is not

There's that one "conversion" chart that addressed stuff which came 
within the A2.4 Updater's readme, but that's it.
A census of users might provide a better mapping.

(i think the 4504 controller i have is 1.0f, for "german mount"

The readme file which came with A2.4 says:

1.0a  1.0j	Asp7A1.0j.rom	Original versions
1.0k		Asp7A1.0k.rom	Previous version
10El		Asp7A10El.rom	Latest English version
10Gl		Asp7A10Gl.rom	Latest German version

So, as you can see, it doesn't specifically -cover- the 4504's
 Starfinder (well, i guess it lumps into "a-j")
(but then, the 4504's Starfinder isn't "rated" for rs232 connection,
anyway... the mere fact you can -do- it (by building an AUX port)
can hardly be held against it... ;-)
