Best firmware for 1633S?

What is the best firmware version for a 1633S?
Currently I have the stock BS0S.

I ran into a problem ripping with DVD DeCrypter: read errors. When I switched to my old 411S it worked but still had 3 read errors.

Suggestions?

i recommend CS0K as i get better results with it than with CSTJ: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares/1653S.CS0K.patched-cf-rs-ledfix.rar

I prefer BYX3. Thanks to codeguys!


#4

the BYX3 writing quality isn’t as good as with CSTJ/CS0K.


#5

CSOK here as well :slight_smile:

For my drive, it depends on the Media:

Ricohjpn R01: CSTJ
Yuden T02: CSTJ
CMC E01: BSOS
MCC03: BSOS
Sony D11: BSOS

I use el cheapo Supermedia 8x or 4x.
I have been getting good results until recently.

Just want to make sure the drive will perform as well as can be expected.

Which of the .exe do I use?


#9

BYX3 … The Gods have spoken!!! :bow: :bow:

@TheBitMan
this one: 1653S.CS0K.patched-cf-rs-ledfix.exe

That’s what I figured, I took a shot at it yesterday and flashed the drive with that one. Fell asleep before I got to try it out. Omnipatcher would not let me change any of the settings?

Also installed Kprobe, so I can run some tests (I am new at this). The media I use is MMC 03 and AML something. Both are sold as Supermedia on dvd-rwmedia.com.

So I have, in effect, turned my 1633 into a 1653? :bigsmile:


#12

yes :wink:


#13

I’ve had my best results from BYX3 but couldn’t get bitsetting to work


#14

I’m having my best scans with Stock BSOS and Yuden000 T02. My question, would anyone recomend going to CSOK while getting these results with BSOS? And my other question, would I be able to flash back to BSOS if BSOK didn’t work out?

You can use the [Floppy Icon] to save a better &
smaller picture of your scan for posting here…!

Sorry, I knew I’d screw up my first scan posting somehow… I’ll look for it next time.

Thanks,

No need to sorry, just want you to have a
better picture only…!

:iagree: :smiley: :rolleyes:

Please make sure you try burning with both BS0S and CSTJ/CS0K. And scan with both firmware. Sometimes, different firmware may scan differently. You may miss a good firmware if it can burn better but read worse.

I heard that C0deking likes CSTJ more than CS0K. I will also stick to it.


#19

I would do that if the answer to my question “would I be able to flash back to BSOS if BSOK didn’t work out?” was ‘yes’. Is it ‘yes’? I’m a little hesitant to cross if only for the obvious warrenty issues.

@ Behr

You can easy go back to BS0S. But you have to use patched firmware, to crossflash the drive back to be a 1633. I did the same last week and used the BS0S ledfix firmware, (already patched) so I have still the benefit of the nice red burning led.
