I haven’t tried flashing the CL98 firmware to my iHAS124 F drive with a May 2015 manufacturing date. So I have no idea what happens if the CL98/CL99 firmware is flashed to an original CL05/CL06/CL07/CL08/CL09 model of iHAS124 F.
[QUOTE=SpotOn;2771458]In other words, can you just update your iHAS124 F drive manufactured in May with the CL98 firmware to fix the “getting lost” problem?
The only iHAS124 F drive where I have tried both the CL08 and CL99 firmwares, is my ASUS DRW-24F1ST c drive with a September 2015 manufacturing date. Both the CL08 and CL99 firmwares seem to run on this drive. Though I have no idea which particular iHAS124 F firmware this ASUS drive is an exact rebadge of, but I suspect it might have been a CL98 drive or an earlier “prototype” (or “frankenstein”) version of the CL98.
Unfortunately just changing the firmware from CL08 to CL99 on this ASUS drive, didn’t really solve the “getting lost and not going to full speed” behavior.
