Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a tester for the puzzle below, which so far seems to avoid being successfully tested at any cost. Needless to say, it is (likely) very hard.

Rules:

-Standard irregular sudoku rules apply, the regions, however, must be deduced by the solver. Some region borders are given and must be respected.

-All regions are orthogonally connected and are numbered by the digits 1-9. The number of the region corresponds to the digit in its upper left corner (the leftmost cell in the highest row). No two regions may share their number.

-A cell is called friendly, if its digit matches the number of its row, column or region (or more of them simultaneously).

-A border between two regions is friendly, if at least one of its adjacent cells is friendly.

-The number in the upper left corner of the cage shows the sum of the digits in the friendly cells within the cage. Digits may not repeat within a cage.

-The clues outside the grid show the number of the friendly borders in the corresponding row or column.

Feedback of any kind is welcome really, even if you just get past the break-in or anything. Don't hesitate to ask for a hint if needed.
