Asus DRW-2014L1T and MSCE

vbimport

#1

Hi:
I would like to know how to read the firmware 1.02 of the above drive and do the magic with MSCE:). I’ve tried with release 1.1.0.16 and does not open the exe file:confused:. Is there another way?
Thanks in advance.

The flasher is compressed with UPX. Uncompress it with
upx -d S2014L1T_V102.exe

Thank you, ala42.
I’ll try it.:bow::bow::bow:

Hi ala42:
I´ve tried your suggestion with MSCE 1.1.0.20 today and I was able to open the file but MSCE is unable to do anything to the flasher. No RPC1 o autoreset RPC2, no increase/decrease speed. All is greyed out. Is there other thing that should I do?
I´m sorry this is almost 6 months later, but I am installing again this drive and I would like to modified the flasher.
Thanks again
HFW

@ HFW,

You use the Media Code Speed Edit tool to apply the “Read Speed Increase/RPC-1 Region Free/Enable Bitsetting” patches to the Firmware file and use the Media Code Speed Edit tool to apply the “Allow Same To Same Flashing” patch to the Flasher file.

Thank you for your answer. The thing is that the firmware is an exe file. If I open it with MCSE, all is greyed out. How could I unpack the flasher from the firmware itself?
Thank you again

HFW,

As per posting #2 did you uncompress the S2014L1T_V102.exe file with UPX (http://upx.sourceforge.net) ?

These patches are not available for the Asus DRW-2014L1T and drives of the same family.

@bjbk
Yes, I´ve unpacked with upx, as Ala42 suggested.

@Ala42
If MCSE is unable to patch the DRW-2014L1T firmware, the only think I can do is to change burning strategies. Is that correct? Also, are you planning to do the patching in future releases od MCSE?
Thanks again

You can swap the write strategies.

I do not know how to change the read speed and will not search for it, but probably I have a RPC1 patch soon.

@Ala42
This are good news, as always from you.:bow:
Thanks-a-million

Is there any update on this one? I tried updating the firmware (after extracting it with UPX), but everything is grayed-out so I assume it isn’t supported yet.

Thanks in advance,
Oren

I have an RPC1 patch for the DRW-2014L1T and some other ASUS MTK chip drives. Send me a PM with your drive id if you need it.

“Send me a PM with your drive id” means send me a private message with your drive identification string. I do not know which drive you have.
