[QUOTE=Liggy;2657593]We’ve got a couple of issues here:
[li]Firmwares for Blu-Ray drives are encrypted[/li][li]The encryption/decryption routines are not known[/li][li]The firmware dumping commands will not dump the firmware on a Blu-Ray drive and no other commands seem to replace them…[/QUOTE][/li]First, thanks taking your time…
Firmwares for Blu-Ray drives are encrypted.
Second, it’s not the first time we deal with encrypted firmwares. Lite-On has been practicing this for far more longer time then NEC/ Optiarc/ Sony/ OrWhatEver. Was it “impossible”? NO! Thanks to all nowdays gone members like code65536, Quiky and C0deKing this kind’a issues have been resolved. [Maybe with help from some “testers”]
My question is; why has then the NEC encryption issue been “resting” for more then 2 years. Whats the problem? Doesn’t the members wanna this to be resolved?
OK, I know, not that many people nowdays use a desktop or a laptop slim blu-ray burner anymore in daily life. Even at my work we are given iPhone, iPads and network storage.
But then, why are we here for? Joo, maybe because we like to pushing the limits forward. Isn’t that why MyCE is still alive?
Given the facts about main chip, eeprom used and basic programming I think we have to start from there.
I only have basic knowledge about programming. During my time at cdfreaks/ okey nowdays MyCE, code65536, zebra and C0deKing have been my teachers when it comes to pushing the limits. I’ve always supported the forum with testing issues.
BTW Liggy. Don’t hesitate to ask me. I don’t bother “loosing” a slim blu-ray drive for a future forum members benefit .
To all; keep on testing.
