This is the opposite of what a different LG engineer or whoever was actually in the know about the hardware aspects said when asked if a future firmware would be able to add it back in. They flat out said no, because it's a hardware level problem.Somebody on AVS contacted LG support about the missing BFI features and was told it will be added back in a future firmware update. This was supposedly relayed from an engineer to the support staff. The AVS member was also told that an engineer from LG will contact him with more information. I don’t know how accurate this info is or if the plans will change again, but it’s a small sliver of hope that the BFI modes might return.
edit: Looks like it might be specific to 120hz. Which was one of the selling points in the promo materials. The BFI was supposed to operate at 100/120hz vs last year's 50/60HZ and have a reduction in perceived flicker and changes in brightness. So the three level functionality might actually be added back in later through firmware, but it was pulled because of this other problem, so they seem to be linked for now.
