Carnivore2 works on every MSX system including TurboR. Also it works (with the special boot block and tools) on Korean and Arabic MSXs that have issues with index and shadow register corruption (Hangul bugs), bugs with text screen output (Daewoo) and special character output features.

Unfortunately, I have no way to check what firmware version your cartridge has. To check the version of the boot block, just open the help screen and you should see it at the bottom of the screen.

The only way to check the firmware version, is connecting the Altera USB Blaster, load the firmware file to the Quartus II software, and make a verify. If the verify finish OK, the firmware version is the same of the loaded file

Yes, you can always upload the latest firmware. Then get the latest boot block. When Nextor goes out of Beta, we will also update the disk BIOS.

so i just "upgraded' the bootblock of this device with the BOOTCMFC.BIN that i downloaded from the Github page

strangely i had version 2.06 and now i have 1.86...
never mind
it seems the carnivore looks for the file in which the c2man was started ... i had it in the root of my CF
