Another bunch of firmware updates

During the last few days I’ve been a little busy again patching some firmwares. If possible, bitsetting was added and all firmwares also have RPC1 versions and Riplock patch where required. Due to the ammount of firmwares that have been patched, it’s not unlikely that a couple of files are still buggy. So please report if something is not working as expected.
These are the new firmwares:

Please use the latest version of Binflash if you want to flash any of these firmwares.

Thanks Liggy for your hard work.

many thanks liggy:)

Thanks again for your work Liggy!

Sorry, if this seems a little out of topic, but there seems to be newer fw’s made even to my old 3500 ;D

What are the newest for:

ND-3500AG

and for

7203S?

And thanks for your work Liggy. Fantastic, just fantastic…

Thank you very much.

These firmwares are not necessarily newer than the firmwares that already were on the site they just weren’t there before. If you want to find out when a specific firmware was made (according to firmware internal timestamps) you can check the firmware overview below the firmware table.

Thank you Liggy

thanks liggy.

Thanks!:clap:

Thanks a bunch!

Thanks Liggy. This is good news because my new 7200A arrives tomorrow.

So the one I want is “1w2bt_rpc1.zip”, right? This offers the exactly the same as 1.09 but is based on the more recent firmware?

[QUOTE=ninjastyle;2428186]So the one I want is “1w2bt_rpc1.zip”, right? This offers the exactly the same as 1.09 but is based on the more recent firmware?[/QUOTE] No it’s based on older firmware.

The firmware for the 7200A with the most recent write strategies is 1.09.
I suggest getting the Liggy’s AD-7200A Bitsetting Firmware 1.09.

OK, thanks very much for the advice, I will get 1.09.

Sony DRU-875S not use Binflash!

Thanks for the updayes.

Optiarc AD-7200S firmware 1.D3

What is this compared to the 1.0B?

1.D3 is an OEM firmware. As far as I remember it was from a Lenovo PC.

In most cases it’s probably best to stick to the Optiarc 1.0* firmwares on half-height (desktop) drives. But feel free to try OEM firmwares.

Thank you, Liggy! 1.0B RPC1 is now on my AD-7200S. Yay.

Thank you very much, Liggy. We all appreciate all your hard work and don’t know what we’d do without it. :slight_smile:

Thanks Liggy, I had my hopes on a firmware for the Optiarc AD-7593[B]S[/B]… Do you think it will be available soon?
