Well, 812S@832S is a reality. The semantics of the hack are being worked on as we speak, with NicW lending me some coding knowledge. Yes, its going to be OK.
If somebody can provide the most current, up to date, RELEASABLE firmware for the 832S, I will gladly get to modding it…and in return, 812S@832S for all those that are keen.
As a disclaimer, we really need to mention a couple of things here:
i) The fact that we KNOW there are subtle PUH/block/chipset differences that exist. Is the hack complete? We dont know yet. We need those who have access to dual layer media to help out in this quest…
ii) Once I have a NEW 832S f/w to work with - and the hack is made for that f/w, remember…flash @ your own risk. You all know the rules of engagement by now!
iii) We can confirm from Nic that in the test spinup of +R DL media, the drive detects and recognised the disc correctly. No burn has taken place as yet…more to come on this. Suffice to say, this is a VERY good sign.
