Gateway laptop, GWA-4082N firmware options?



I understand one’s options are limited with OEM laptop drives but I was hoping at a minimum to find a firmware that removes riplock. I presume this drive has this as DVD Decrypter reported a max read speed of 3.1x and an average speed in the 2.7x range (for a video DVD).

Over at RPC1’s forums I found a firmware that does auto-reset (region protection) and/or RPC modification. Neither of those are much interest to me…

Gateway has NO updates available. What options are available ??


Maybe some firmware developer will help you other than that your stuck i believe.


One person over at the RPC forums asked about removal of riplock and was told more or less, “not going to happen”.
