iHAS124-04 "B"

I recently purchased the liteon iHAS124-04 B at newegg and was wondering if I am able to crossflash. I have the read previous post that stated the “A” is MTK while the “Y” is NEC. This model is a “B” with a firmware version AL02. Manufacture date: April 2010. I am confused any help would be appreciated.

No, you can NOT crossflash any ‘A’ or ‘Y’ firmwares because the ‘B’ is a new MediaTek chipset.

Thank you for the reply. It has been hard trying to find any information on this drive.

Does anyone know where to get updated firmware for this drive?

Mine has AL02 on it. I’ve seen someone somewhere with AL08, but I haven’t been able to find it anywhere.
