long time reader and first time poster :).
I need assistance cross-flashing my LG BR reader please. I'm getting an offset error when I try to write my firmware.... not sure if I'm missing a step or what.
I have a LG HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH10LS30 running 1.01 f/w. I used MCSE to disable riplock ages ago and have been happy enough with it.
I'd like to cross flash to the BH12LS30 to enable faster ripping.
None of the links work in the previous threads on here so I have been trying to piece this together myself.
What I have done so far:
downloaded "flasher" from sourceforge.
extracted "core" and "main" f/w as backup
downloaded BH12LS30.exe f/w and using Flasher:
- extracted core/main .bin files.
used a Hex editor to change the header in the main.bin from "BH12LS30" to "BL10LS30" as advised here (http://club.myce.com/f91/flash-bh10ls30-bh12ls30-320353/) at post 7.
used MCSE to disable riplock
Tried using flasher to write the new firmware.
I get an error and the below message:
G:\Flasher>flasher -d 1 -f Main_bh12LS30_L101.exe_speedpatched.bin

firm_flasher: your drive should still be fine.
cmd_flashfirm: Flashing process failed
I have used the --Checksum option and it made no difference (do I just use --checksum or need to write in an actual checksum?? readme wasn't clear).
Does the drive need to be placed into a state for f/w update? didn't seem so from the post I linked....
Anyway if anyone can help I'd be happy
