I am new here... great site! Wish i'd discovered it earlier...
I've had the 48246S for a number of months now, I recently flashed it to the SSOA f/w .. and only just discovered that it's 'apparently' possible to flash it to the newer/faster 52x f/w ... I am very keen to do this, I tried to do as much research as I could prior to making this thread, but can't work out for the life of me how to successfully flash using the 52x f/w ..
I went to lite-on's website.. downloaded the latest 52x f/w off there (an exe file) .. but when I run it ... it gives me an error stating i don't have a recognisable drive for this particular f/w ...
I then discovered the util called "mtkWinFlash" .. so i grabbed the latest version off the official website.. let it run through the query process (the bar that slowly moves from left to right) .. and afterwards i was still unable to get the program to detect my lite-on drive.. when i click the dropdown bar at the top, nothing is listed at all..
Any advice / guidance here would be extremely appreciated.... thanks ever so much for your support.
While I think of it.. according to MtkWinFlash, you need a .BIN file for the firmware... but the firmware on lite-on's site is an .EXE (with the embedded flashing program) ... how does one get around this?
