Arista unqualified SFP

Hi all,
Is there a way for unlocking off-brand transceivers usage on Arista 

I've got an Arista 7050QX switch with 4.14 EOS version. Then it has been 
found out that Arista switches seem to not have possibility to unlock 
off-brand xcievers usage (by some service command or so).

I've patched /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/XcvrAgent.py, made the 
checking function bypass the actual check and it helped: ports are not 
in errdisable state anymore. But despite of xceivers are detected 
correctly, links aren't coming up (they are in notconnect state).

If anyone possibly have does have a sacred knowledge of bringing 
off-branded transceivers to life on Arista switches, your help'd be very 
appreciated. Thanks.
