The drive has no track zero sensor so an earlier version doesn't make any sense at all. Using an even earlier ROM (from the original 1541) could be done if you really wanted, but there are a lot of demos that have fast loaders that tend to break with the old 1541 so why do it? I have a few 1541-II and they all have the original -03 ROM. The only replacement ROM I could imagine would be JiffyDOS and that has the bug fixed as well. I suppose one could write a ROM checksum routine, download it into the drive, execute it and have it identify the ROM used.
