You have to upgrade your OCM.
Is there any particular reason why you resistant to change?

What do you mean ? Use the KDL's code instead of Caro's Code ?
I tried but failed , I don't know how to do that...

Is there much of a difference between the original OCM and the caro's DE1 version?
I heard the original OCM supports KDL's firmware updates. isn't it?

Yes, Original OCM Support KDL's firmware.
DE1 Board is not an OCM. If i'm not false, Caro made a port of KDL's Firmware for the DE1 Board, but there are some differences. I don't think there are so much differences at all.
I think mglOCM must works well on a DE1 board, the problem (I think) is the way the loader check if it run on a OCM or not.
