What I was proposing was :
- First extract contents of 1.02 firmware file with WinRAR/WinZIP.
- Edit Flash.ini with a text editor (e.g. notepad)
- Change the line :
AutoDetect = 6;
AutoDetect = 3;
in your case. (3=GWA-4166B, see info in my previous post)
4. Save the file and exit the text editor.
5. Run FWLoader.exe to flash your drive
I have no idea if this will work and if it does work, I don’t know if it will crossflash the drive to a GSA-4166B, or just update the firmware and leave you with a GWA-4166B.
The reason why I came up with this idea is due to the instructions someone left in another post for hacking Panasonic’s DVD-RAM drivers to work with non-Panasonic drives. This driver looks as if it follows the same format for drive checking. I suspect the flashing program came from Panasonic originally and LG modified it to add their icon to the program. That is why I think it might work. I don’t have any of these drives so I can’t test the idea properly. If you want to try this, fine but be aware of the risks involved.
