For better or worse. The firmware N0AD is for test purposes only. LG does not take any responsbility for anythat that happens to the drive or PC with flashing to N0AD or any other unofficial firmware version. Of coruse, it makes the waranty void as well but that should not be a problem if you got the drive from a source without warranty at all. In South Korea, I recommend people to buy GSA-4120B for 126,000 Won instead of the retail version for 50% more. LG does not provide any kind of support for the cheaper GSA-4120B because they didn’t want them to be sold to South Koreans. If you bought an optical drive or even a hard disk drive or CPU for lower-than-retail prices, it’s likely that they were distributed in less official ways, sometimes illegally or illegitamely or whatever you want to call it.
Please post your results with firmware N0AD so that otehrs can make better decisions. Also, please let everyone else know whether there are better firmware tan N0AD.
Don’t tell me to remove it. Do a better job first.
There was no agreement or warning about the use of N0AD during the field testing from April to May in South Korea of whatever kind I am aware of. What LG and Samsung have called illegal is often the best and morally correct thing to do.
