FastBurn, Enhanced OverSpeed & Enhanced OHT Firmware

Official Thread

FastBurn (-FB):
FastBurn uses the higher burn RPM for 8x and 12x burning with both +R and -R media. Now the xxA1x drives can do 12x burning typically in less than 6:30, which is even faster than the 5S and 6S drives.

Fast Burn Light (-FBL):
Uses a slightly lower RPM than FB, for 8x and 12x burning. This allows media that failed to burn well at 16x a better chance to burn well at 12x, without sacrificing much burn time. A typical burn takes around 6:30 at 12x.

Enhanced OverSpeed (-EOS):
Enhanced OverSpeed allows DVD+R and DVD-R media to be burned at, up to, 16x. 20A1x firmwares also allows all 16x media to be burned at, up to, 20x. Please understand that because this speed is offered, it does not necessarily mean that it will burn successfully at this speed. You will need to experiment to see what the highest successful burn speed for your media is. If you are using applications that don’t allow you to set the burn speed, then I suggest you don’t uses the version with Enhanced OverSpeed, “-eos” in the file name.

Possible burn speeds above branded speed:
16x: 18x[ - 20x] <- 20A1x only
12x: 16x
8x: 12x - 16x
4x: 8x - 12x - 16x
2x: 4x - 8x - 12x - 16x

Enhanced Online HyperTuning (-EOHT):
Uses a more sensitive OHT, which increases in sensitivity towards the end of the burn, to ensure even better burn quality, while fast burning, overclocking or burning media at rated speeds.

Additional results can be found here in the sneak peek thread.

Note:
1/ Use the EEPROM Utility to make a backup of your EEPROM before flashing, just in case.
2/ The Test SmartBurn should be used to enable OverSpeed (Enhanced OverSpeed).
3/ Only 8x or 12x burns are affected by the FastBurn patch. Burning at other speeds is the same as using stock firmware.
4/ Using this firmware will void your warranty. If your drive should fail after flashing to this firmware, do not return it, instead do the right thing and purchase a new drive.

Thanks to seeker010 for making this patch possible, by sending me a 20A1H and thanks to all of the tester. :flower:

-fb = FastBurn
-eos = Enhanced OverSpeed

Enjoy! :slight_smile:

great work again :bow:!
thank you C0deKing and thanks to all testers who made this possible :clap:
great community. now waiting for the 20A1H FB-EOS :bigsmile:


#3

I will say thank you in advance (as I have a 20A1P that is now 2 days old and if it breaks its only £20 to replace it). The burn speed and quality look very good and the overspeed feature is something I miss over the BenQ. I have some 1x DVD-R’s that actually burn very well at 12x on the BenQ, should be fun to try them faster than 4x on the Liteon.


#4

Thanks COdeKing! Can’t wait for the LH-20A1P FastBurn patch!


#5

thanks COdeKing :bow:
Does this fastburn feature affect the burning quality or is it the same as the stock but improved?


#6

Thank you C0deKing!!! Thanks to all testers!!!

What a great, great patch!!

I can’t wait to get my LH-18A1P back from RMA so I can play with this!

See Pulsee’s shootout here (3 posts): :wink:

whoa, it looks pretty much the same :clap:


#9

Thanks for this firmwares C0deKing. :bow:

MID: TDK-003 (DVD+R 591682) made in Europe
Type: DVD+R 1-16x rated
Burned with: CD/DVD Speed 4.7.0.0
Burned as: Create Disc
Burned at: 18x speed
Burntime: 5:20
PreBurn Calibration: 47 seconds
Drive/Firmware: LH-18A1P / GL0F_fb_eos

Great burn. :clap:
BTW, words like fastburn and overspeed reminds me of old “Dare” threads in BenQ/Philips section (example). I hope our LH-18/20 Liteys will be able to achieve those 16x speeds and quality one day… :wink:

i’m jealous of that enhanced fastburn. so ima make a dumb question. can it be applied to the 5/6s series?


#11

[I]off topic[/I]

Maybe better keep “5” and “6” drives fastburn/overspeed questions in this thread
Sorry, it’s not my intention to act as a mod. :stuck_out_tongue:

[I]/off topic[/I]


#12

fb is spinning up the rpms in a 6s manner, and the 5s has an enhanced burn patch in the 5/6s eos thread. unless of course, I’m drunk while posting this and have completely forgotten something.


#13

Yes, especially at 8X/12X, 6S RPM starts at higher speed. 5S already got a fast patch. El, you may look into Liteon forum for details.


#14

Cool!!

I’m sure waiting for 20A1P eos Firmware!! :slight_smile:


#15

Good job C0deKing!
Thanks


#16

if ya’l knew what your were talking bout ya’ll wouldn’t flame me like that. i meant like the 18 and 20x series uses a better version of it. like benq’s it doesn’t dip back to normal after 2.8gb like the 5 and 6s


#17

@El_Mariachi_X
i think C0deKing had applied this patch to 5S/6S firmwares if it was possible.
the hardware differences may be the main point of higher speed.


#18

LH-18A1P-185C - OEM - Sept 06 (noisy unit)
GL0F FB-EOS - All On - Bitset ROM

  • install released GL0F FB-EOS
  • check/set HT/OS/OHT to “on” and clear OPC, etc.
  • set all +R to ROM
  • firmware allows x16 burn, but set to x12
