20A3L Firmware

I would like to crossflash a Sony AD-7191S drive to a Litey 20A3L. I found the flasher and EEPROM utilities at CodeGuys, but can’t seem to locate the latest stock 20A3L firmware (bin) that I believe the flasher needs. Does anyone know where I can find it? I haven’t crossflashed before, so if I’m on the wrong track I’d appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance!

If you’re using the Flash Utility found on the CodeGuys site, you can also pair it with the executable .EXE firmware files on the CodeGuys site for the 20A3L; you don’t need to have the .BIN in this case.

Thanks for your reply, Albert. Unfortunately, I can only find firmware .EXEs for the 20A3P and the 20A3H on the CodeGuys site. Any idea where else I might look for 20A3L firmware?

You can find the Codeking’s patched firmware for your drive here: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/new-liteon-plds-patched-firmware-thread-new-267641/

Or the EP5A firmware from liteon here: http://www.liteonit.com/DOWNLOADS/ODD/DH-20A3L/firmware/EP5AN.exe

Thanks, zhadoom. Just for clarification, I had thought the flasher required unscrambled firmwares. Is the 20A3L f/w on the liteon site unscrambled?

The firmware at the Liteon site is scrambled ( sorry ). I believe that you can 1st flash using Codeking patched firmware ( turning the drive into a 20A3L ) and if necessary flashing using the last firmware from Liteon.

In past I made a similar process to convert my AD-7190A to a 20A3P.

Thanks, zhadoom! That sounds like it should work. I will try your suggestion tonight. I also have an AD-7190A, so I’ll try it with that drive also.

Thanks, zhadoom. :bow: Your suggestion worked perfectly. :iagree:
