Quality Patched 1693S Firmware for 1673S, 1693S, 720A, 800A (KC4B)

KC4B - Quality Patched 1693S Firmware
The Official Thread

*Michael Buffer on the microphone* "In the blue corner is LiteOn and in the red corner is the Code Guys. The Code Guys were the winner of the first 2S series - can they do it again with the 3S series. Let's get ready to rumble..."

Hehe - I know it's been a long time coming but finally here it is - well at least for the 1673S/93S and +/-R media at 6x, 8x, 12x and 16x. I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the results so far.

What is it
The aim of this firmware is to produce lower PIFs. It uses a WOPC (Walking Optimum Power Control) technique that adjusts the OPC at fixed points during the burn.

It’s already crossflash patched for 1673S users, has a faster LED flash rate when burning and has the following read speed changes:

+R/-R = 16x
ROM/9 = 12x
+/-R9 = 8x

Notes
* This firmware is experimental and is not supported or condoned by the drive manufacturer. You will void your drive's warranty if you use this firmware.
* Remember this patch affects +/-R media at 6x, 8x, 12x and 16x only.
* Some PIF spikes may occur at the recalibrate points, but like the NEC drives, these seldom cause a problem.
* Stay tuned to this thread for updates.

More information
Please read the documentation enclosed in the package, for more details.

Credits
Thanks to Pulsee for making this possible.

So it’s ready to go for 1673S, 1693S, 720A and 800A users – enjoy.

What's new in KC4B
A revised WOPC pattern.
Less errors at the outside of the disc.
Supports +/-R media.

It would be nice if we had the chance to see scans of the same disc burnt before and after the quality patched firmware

I'll Try That

I Have Very Limited DVD+R's Here At The Moment.

So This Is What I'll Do:

Flash To KC1B Do A Reset Learn.
Burn 5 Verbatim MCC003 DVD's In A Row, Reboot After Each Burn.

Flash To KS0B Do A Reset Learn.
Burn 5 Verbatim MCC003 DVD's In A Row, Reboot After Each Burn.

Then Post My Quality Scan Results Here.

If Time Permits I'll Repeat The Process With SONY 8x DVD+R (SONY D11).

If Anyone Thinks This Is A Dumb Idea Or I'm Going About It The Wrong Way.
Just Let Me Know.

Ricoh RICOHJPNR03 @ 12x

This media is amazing at 12x with KC1B , but don't even think about 16x.

@pulsee
Going to put me to the test aye - your keen. I'd say the reboot wasn't required. You'll be pleased to know that every burn I've done so far has had less PIEs and PIFs compared to KS0B or KS0A.

Hi Infini

I Use EEPROM_Utility-3.0.4 To Reset The Drive's Learning Back To Factory After Flashing To A New Firmware.
Plus I Always Backup My EEPROM Before Flashing And Resetting.

Find It Here: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/utilities.html

Re: Quality Patched 1693S Firmware for 1673S, 1693S, 720A, 800A (KC1B) *NEW*

I wonder whether the scanning on the LiteOn is making a difference to the results ... I'll try the same on the BenQ tonight and compare results - but i'd say this is superb with the exception of the spikes. I'd like to see jitter too - cos I use BenQ's to scan, the jitter seems to be a better indication of readability at high speed and disc lifetime, high jitter is also a telltale sign of laser power problems too .... I did get atrocious scans on the BenQ for a RICOHJPNR01@R02 8x on my 1653s cstr but it scanned nicely on the Liteon. Also - the 166s struggles and stays below 10x read speed (hacked for 16x). I know my 1653s is not good, hope this is a turning point for Liteon!

The point of decide it...

The LiteOn are good readers, the Benq is more senstive when reading a disc with high jitter.

Have the 1653S and hope the newer LiteOn´s are much better; some scans I´ve seen promise this
