Asus B1ST->Lite-on crossflash

#1

So I’m trying to crossflash my Asus DRW-24B1ST v.1.03 to lite-on firmware, but am I correct in gathering that I need v.1.04 because it has the correct chipset? I want a Mediatech chipset right?

I also own an 08 Pioneer DVR-116DBK, any info on that?

NO.

DRW-24B1ST with firmware 1.04 are LiteON iHAS124/324/524 B clones.
DRW-24B1ST with firmware 1.03 or lower are LiteON iHAS124/324/524 A clones.

They’re both based on Mediatek chipsets, but you can’t crossflash between A drives and Bdrives - the two series are based on different Mediatek chipsets/hardware. To avoid any doubt, that means you can’t flash a DRW-24B1ST 1.03 drive with with firmware 1.04 or vice-versa!

Therefore, in your case you can crossflash your DRW-24B1ST 1.03 to a LiteON iHAS524 A drive.

Make sure you always backup [U]both[/U] your EEPROM and Firmware before attempting to crossflash.

What info are you after?

If what you’re asking is if its possible to crossflash an DVR-116D to a LiteON then the answer is NO. The best you can do is to crossflash it to a DVR-116L (aka DVR-A16J). That would enable DVD-RAM burning support and LabelFlash.
