[QUOTE=cvs;2719376]Dumping the firmware is not the main problem. Flashing the firmware back is the bigger problem… unlike for Panasonic based LG drives, there are no standalone LG flashers for Mediatek based drives, and also there are no third party utilities known to work with these drives either… Dosflash might be an option, either for dumping, or for flashing or for both, but nobody has confirmed any of this so far.
Dumping the firmware can be done quite easily using the Devilsclaw’s Renesas flasher with this special command line:
flasher -d [drive id] -l firmware.bin 6 00000000 00200000
Maybe someone with an ASUS BW-12B1ST a drive could do a dump for us…
I don’t know if Dosflash works or not for dumping, because it doesn’t like my mobo and doesn’t show me any connected drives at all… but since these drives are based on a Mediatek chipset Dosflash might well work at least for dumping purposes. Again it would be great if someone could give it a try … dumping is a risk free operation really …
I have no idea if Dosflash would work for flashing a firmware back or not … which is the most important part really … we might never know unless someone wants to risk trying it …[/QUOTE]
I did it on my ASUS BW-12B1ST a drive and it gave me a 2mb file. However I’m not going to try Dosflash to flash the firmware back, as I don’t want to possibly brick my ASUS BW-12B1ST a drive
