No. The chipset is different.

link to review?
811 and 812s are completely different drives.

you can crosfflash 401s->411s->811s
802s->812s->822s->832s
and 1213s->1613s->1633s->1653s

LITE-ON IT CORP. has released the SOHW-812S half-height ATAPI / E-IDE 8x DVD Dual ReWriter. Sharing internal parts and mechanism with the previous LiteOn model (LDW-811S), the drive is capable of writing DVD+R and DVD-R media at 8x, while the rewritable speed is 4x for both DVD+RW and DVD-RW formats.

It has a different OPU (which is the main problem) and a different revision of the analog processor, which can also handle -R at 8x.
