This question is probably slightly off topic, but I was wondering does anyone know if there is a hardware difference between the SH-S222A’s that have firmware revision SA00 and the ones that feature the SB series of firmware? The reason I ask is I’m hoping to use this utility to possibly crossflash my SA00 firmware based drive with the latest SB series firmware, I would like to utilize some of the features of this patcher to possibly improve the performance of the drive (currently verifying burned files with CDBurnerXP takes approximately 30 minutes even though it only takes around 6 minutes to burn a full DVD5 data dvd, I’m assuming this is related somehow to the ‘riplock’ feature that I saw mention of in a previous reply, and would like to disable that feature if possible). I’m leery of attempting to crossflash the drive without knowing if there is indeed a hardware difference or not. I’m not looking to gain much other than improved verify times at this point, aside from possibly fixing the ‘Program Memory Area Update Failure’ error I recently started receiving on my other SH-S222A drive (also with the SA00 firmware), Samsung has apparently abandoned the SA series of firmware and is not allowing their SB series of firmware to be flashed to drives that contain the SA series (or any other series other than SB for that matter). I’m not entirely new to firmware flashing, I have flashed several different drives over the years, I’ve just never really learned about actually modifying the firmware myself. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can provide me with, and again I apologize for being slightly off topic on this.
