Re: OmniPatcher for LiteOn/Sony Optical Drives (v2.4.2) (DVD-ROM/Combo support!)

Hey can someone please tell me what i am doing wrong. I opened up my firmware with omnipatcher. then i changed the write speeds on my media. I saved the bin. Then i used LtnFW to install that firmware. But the update never finishs. It will say that its updating and do nothing. I waited 30 mins b4 just stopping it.
What am i doing wrong?

Re: OmniPatcher for LiteOn/Sony Optical Drives (v2.4.2) (DVD-ROM/Combo support!)

So what do I need to do to use Omnipatcher with the 1635 drive?

you can't use omnipatcher with 1635s firmwares.
there's a problem that has to be solved before c0deking/code65536 can release a new omnipatcher that supports 5s firmwares.
just wait and look in the omnipatcher thread which is stickied. you will get all infos on new versions there.

Re: OmniPatcher for LiteOn/Sony Optical Drives (v2.4.2) (DVD-ROM/Combo support!)

QUESTION!

im not familiar with this new version of omnipatcher.

in the old versions it used to patch the read speed automatically, now you have to do it manually and i dont know what are the best speeds to select.

also, should i use BS0S, or BS41 on my 1633s?

thanks!

Re: OmniPatcher for LiteOn/Sony Optical Drives (v2.4.2) (DVD-ROM/Combo support!)

I have a 1633S, and have crossflashed to CS0R, a 1653S firmware. I get better results. Im still tweaking it, but for a good overall firmaware, use 1653S CS0P. Most drives are happy reading up to 12x, but you might have to expirement a bit.

I'm really tired of ripping at 8x on the 1635s. Maybe it's time to take up a collection and bribe Codeking to fix OP. How much do you want CK?

@C0deKing
is the checksum problem really that hard to solve?
when can we expect a new 16x5s supporting omnipatcher? would be a great chistmas gift for all 5s users.

How much did you get. I hope it has lots of zeros. $0000000.00

Well I can't find a checksum in YS0R. rdgrimes can you try the R9 rip speed patch in YS0R for me. Change the 08 at 1EC09 (in the bin file) to 10 hex. See if you have the same problem.

Didn't you consider that maybe I'd tried it in my 1635S without any problem but not with the burn software that you are using.

Edit: Here's the disc I burned with Nero CD-DVD speed, with R9 read speed set to 16x, scanned in the BenQ 1640:

And the scan of a DL DVD movie @ 12x read. 16x was not so good.

I'm able to get the 16x and 12x rip speeds on ROM-9 with YS0R, but burning still fails at leadout. I changed the 1EC09 bit to 16x, then to 12x due to erratic reading at 16x. 2 burns failed at leadout, one at 16x and one at 12x.

As before, 8x burning still works fine.

Thanks. Strange! I'm running a Fast Burn patched version of YS0R and other than a funny error spike with MCC004 it seems fine - but all of my burns are with Nero CD-DVD Speed. What burning app are you using?

Nero, any burn at 12x/16x fails at lead-out.

Okay same problem with NS when I burn at 12x but only after changing the read speed (not the FB patch), so it's not a checksum on the entire firmware, just certain areas of the firmware (probably those that OP changes ). Thanks rdgrimes, that's a big help.

I just tried a 16x burn in DVDDecryptor, and it was fine, no errors and a good disc.

A patch in the read speed patch area that changes the code bytes but not the functionality would help to figure out if the problem is really checksum or functionality dependant.

We're only changing the R9 read speed so it shouldn't have any effect on SL media at all and they would have to change the main variable that holds the media type to request this speed from the read speed subroutine and I think it would be unlikely that they would do that - but stranger things have happened.

Hmm, I hoped you changed something that could be used for burning ...
