Crossflash GSA-H44N firmware to GSA-H42N Buffalo RJ11?

From what I read from most reviews (chinese and taiwan sites mostly), H44N and H42N seem to be sharing the same chipset and have identical specs (minus the vista compatibility stuff).

So can I crossflash GSA-H44N firmware to GSA-H42N Buffalo RJ11?
Anyone done it successfully? How about support for MediaCodeSpeedEdit also?

H42L@H44L seems to work, so the N version will probably work, too. If you dare you can apply the crossflash patch with the current MCSE version, but I do not know if someone has tried that yet, so in the worst case your drive could be dead. Crossflashing voids warranty.

Yes I can verify it works Ala42. I just did it. Worked great.:bow:

Thanks ala42 & alan1476… :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

I’ll be crossflashing my H44N to H42N with Buffalo RJ11 tonight! :iagree: :bigsmile:


#5

Is it CF from H42n to H44n
or the other way around


#6

Alan crossflashed his H42N to H44N. jervislim was talking about crossflashing his H44N to H42N (RJ11).


#7

Oh, okay got me confuse there for a moment
Thanks for clearing that up for me.


#8

I crossflashed H42L to H44L using Alan42’s MCSE10910. But I cannot crossflash it back to H42L, because MCSE does not show H44L/N drives but only H42L and H42N.


#9

I hope ala42 can fix this.


#10

ala42 :clap: already has a patch for this problem (H44 to H42)


#11

what does the h44 have over the h42?


#12

Nothing as far as I can see.:disagree:


#13

That would come in handy. Thanks ala42. Where to download please?


#14

It sounds feasable to be able to do it. Ala42 just has to add the H44N TO MCSE. But it may not be that simple only Ala42 would really know.:iagree:


#15

Yeah, I would like to know where this is also, it sure isn’t in the latest MCSE. Only the H42N/L.:iagree:


#16

i mean what are h44 specs compared to the h42?


#17

I think that i has something to do with Vista support.


#18

I read the review @ the Japanese CD-R lab website last night. They couldn’t find the difference between the H42N and the H44N since both drives are Vista compatible now. They haven’t finished the entire test yet though…
