Btc 1008@1108?

1008@1108 ?
Do the BTC 1008 and 1108 use the exact same hardware?

If so, it would be very possible to update your drive with 1108 firmware to enable 8X DVD-R writing on your 1008 drive.
Has anyone tried loading 1108 firmware onto their 1008 in DOS using mtkflash?

IIRC, all attempts were unsuccessful.
