Any benefit to crossflash 1673s to 1693s?

Hi, I’ve noticed a few people on various forums have claimed that they’ve crossflashed their 1673s to 1693s firmware. I was just wondering what (if any) advantage this might produce.

adding DVD-R DL support

Cool :). Do you know it’s safe and if it works (as in has anyone burnt a -R-DL and checked it really works?)

use the search function: http://club.cdfreaks.com/search.php?

the crossflash is safe. you can flash with this firmware: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares/dvdrw/1693S.KS0A.patched-cf.rar

why would someone use -r9 instead of +r9? i wouldn’t do the crossflash.

My thoughts exactly. Still it’s useful info to file away for “future reference”, just in the off chance that -r9 eventually advances way more than +r9 and becomes the dominant DL media.

before this will happen, there will be some newer media types on the market and dvds won’t be interesting anymore.
