After some matching I came upon the conclusion that the HP DVD 1140i is a rebadged Liteon iHAP422. My problem is I can’t find the firmware bin to crossflash it. Found all kinds of utilities that won’t crossflash. Tried flashfix on the liteon utility, still wouldn’t let me flash the drive. Is there anywhere I can get the bin flash for the iHAP422?
Nevermind I figured it out. I just used the Flash utility on here and dragged the modded firmware from here into it and flashed perfectly. Just for reference the HP DVD 1140i (or 1140d as it’s named in windows) is officially a Liteon iHAP422 8.
