Best firmware for LiteOn SHM-165P6S


I have just bought a LiteOn SHM-165P6S and was wondering what the best firmware currently is for achieving the best burn quality.

I read that OmniPatcher doesn’t work with this drive so I don’t know what patches are available?



what do you need patches for? Stick with latest stock firmware and install Smartburn tool (Test version, there is a thread about that). You may also install Kprobe, that also allows some custom settings, RPC1 included.


Basically, I want RPC1 and relilable burn quality. I’m not too bothered about pushing for the fastest speed.

adamh128, MS0P does a good job in the 165P6S and you can get a read speed unlocked version here. As Michael says, you can use KProbe to make your drive region free.

Great, thanks everyone.
