3500A, stock 2.18, and 2.28 firmware

What are the differences between the stock 2.18 and 2.28? They appear to be the same (minus bitset for DVD+RW) according to the www.micheldeboer.nl/firmware website. Is this the reason why the latest mod FW is based on 2.28? Will both burn the Yuden000 T02 DVD+R media at 16X?

From NecDump, YUDEN00 T02 are supported at 16x in oficial f/w 2.18

[YUDEN000T02  ] ->  2.4x 4x 6x 8x 13x 16x

From NecDump and IO-DATA 2.28 f/w:

[YUDEN000T02  ] ->  2.4x 4x 6x 8x 13x 16x

So both are supported at 16x. All the write strats are the same version too so you’d have to look at each one in NecDump side by side and see if you can spot any difference!

There is no difference except in bitsetting =)

Thanks for the clarifications.
