Another bunch of firmware updates

I know I’ve been a little lazy again regarding firmware updates but first I didn’t have enough firmwares that would have been worth spending time on them and once I had the firmwares I didn’t have time for patching.

But a couple of minutes ago I added a bunch of firmwares to our Optiarc firmware page:

[ul]
[li]Optiarc AD-5240S - 1.Z2 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset) - This firmware comes from a duplicator device and will not work on reail drives due to different bootcodes
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-5540A - 2.63 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-5680H - 3AHB (RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-5960S - 2AP5 (RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7230S - 102B (RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7230S - 1.D2 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7240S - 1.04 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7260S - 1.00 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7260S - 1.01 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7261S - 1.01 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7263S - 1.00 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7263S - 1.01 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7540A - 1.A8 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7700S - 1.71 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7703S - 1.03 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7910S - 1.71 (Bitsetting, RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]Optiarc AD-7910S - 1.Vb (Bitsetting, RPC1, Riplock, Auto-Reset)
[/li][li]LiteOn PLDS DH24AYS - BB2Y (Bitsetting, RPC1, Auto-Reset)
[/li][/ul]

Firmwares can be flashed with Binflash and flashing the Optiarc AD-5680H should work with version 1.51 which is expected to be released very soon.

Thanks again Liggy.


#3

I wonder if Optiarc is ever going to release the 1.04 FW for the AD-7241S


#4

thanks man
nice work


#5

Liggy, I rarely post here but have used a lot of your firmware.

Thank you very much for the time and effort you put in to them, much appreciated. :flower:

Thanks

Thanks Liggy. Appreciate all your efforts in helping the community with your modified firmwares. Your 1.04 for the Optiarc AD-7240 flashed fine with no problems whatsoever.


#8

Did anyone successfully test bitsetting or did someone have problems with any of these firmware patches?


#9

Awesome, thanks Liggy. I’ve flashed my 7240 with the bitsetting RPC1 firmware and have had no problems with any burns, though haven’t yet needed to bitset.

I tested the bitsetting and the region auto-reset function in the Optiarc AD-7240S 1.04 auto-reset firmware. Both features are functioning correctly so thanks again Liggy :clap:

perfect



#12

7260s as well Thanks very wonderful!


#13

Thanks! I really like the bitsetting modification for the 7260 firmware. I really don’t understand why Sony/NEC would only allow it on DL discs, but I appreciate you modifying it so I could bitset my single layer discs.


#14

I like bitsetting functionality myself - that’s my main reason for patching.

I have a DVD player that I first had in the living room, then in the bedroom and now in the basement that can only play DVD+R when they’re booktyped to DVD-ROM. Although this player is only rarely used nowadays and may even be binned due to problems with a gear inside the drive I still want to have my disks booktyped because I haven’t seen a single player yet that cannot play these DVDs.


#15

Is there anyway to flash a 7241s to a 7240s? I really don’t care about lightscribe, I just bought the 7241 because it was cheaper at the time.


#16

There are no public tools available to flash from 7241S to 7240S


#17

Are you planning on releasing Optiarc AD-5260S (1.00) firmware with bitsetting?

I have not tested bitsetting yet, but DH24AYS BB2Y auto-reset works fine.
Thanks!

http://forums.overclockers.ru/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=148506&start=1080 seems to be able to flash a 7243s to 7240s, though unfortunately I don’t understand Russian, but I have no idea about 7241s to 7240s.

If someone provides me with this firmware, I should be able to do that.
