France24 - AFP report

"The investigation team has located and identified the memory module of the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) - at 10H UTC (GMT) this morning (Sunday morning). It was back aboard the ship (Ile de Sein) at 16:40 UTC (ie 6:40 p.m. Paris time), announced the Bureau of Investigation and Analysis (BEA), responsible for technical investigation.

"At this stage, the box looks in good physical condition. Our experts tell us that we can hope to read that data, " Jean-Paul Troadec told AFP.

He however expressed caution noting that for the moment, it was unclear whether the case had been damaged by corrosion.
Note the BEA's caution!
