iHES108 - backup firmware/

vbimport

#1

Hey everyone,

I’m trying to backup/dump the firmware of my drive before I do any kind of modding but I don’t exactly know which tool to use.

The reason I want to save the firmware is because it came shipped with version 7L72. I can’t find this version or a something more recent posted anywhere and I’d rather not flash to 7L07 as it iseems to be older.

If it helps here’s the info on the drive sticker:

BD COMBO DRIVE
Model: iHES108-29 2
Manufactured Date: April 2009

In Windows it shows the following in Device Manager (see attachment):
ATAPI_iHES108__2_______________________7L72______

Use Eeprom utility and flash utility to backup the Eeprom and firmware. Put them in some safe place in case of a recovery be necessary. Both are important.
