You can use any version <= 1.0.22 without modify it.

I use current stable version (1.0.24) after I modified avision.c in
backend source directory.

 1) get the source

 2) search "ScanJet 5370C" in backend/avision.c and modify
with (this disable firmware checking)

  3) recompile backends

  4) copy new libsane-avision.so.1.0.24 in /usr/lib/sane/ (or where your
  distribution put sane shared libraries)

It's working fine after so I don't understand why nodody wants to commit
the change. :-(
