LG CH10LS20 and LG UH10LS20

Hello.

Just placed an order for the LG CH10LS20. Prior to ordering, I tried to find out the differences between the CH10LS20 and the UH10LS20. I was able to find only one comment saying that the two drives are identical.

Since there are more discussions related to the UH10LS20, I was about to purchase the UH10LS20 over the CH10LS20. However, the CH10LS20 went on sale for $30 less and so I pulled the trigger on it.

I plane to flash the new drive with the patched firmware. Since this will be my first time using MCSE, if have a few questions for the more seasoned users regarding firmware:

  1. I see the comment for the patched firmware says it has the RPC2 AutoReset. Does this means the patched firmware will make it a RPC1 drive?

  2. Is the firmware for the UH10LS20 the same as the CH10LS20?

Thanks.

2: the firmwares differ in 32 bytes, so they are quite close

I just got my CH10LS20 and I’m posting here because for a non specialist who doesn’t have a native english, the link to the topic on “media code for LG” is a bit confusing

My LG is region 2 and I need to use it in region 4, so I would like to get rid of the region code (tried to change it manually, it didn’t work), and of course if a firmware allows to do so and improve burner’s specs, it would be great

Thank you all for your help to solve this region code issue and undestrand, if this is avalaible, where to download improved firmware and how to flash it ;)) :bow:

Then change the region. Done.

Does the CH10LS20 support bitsetting, and if yes is it auto or manual?
