Okay... now that the fuss over the firmware package is over (if you're wondering what happened to those posts, they got split off into another thread)... let's get down to business, shall we?
First, for those of you who want to speedhack or autobitset your US0N firmware, these tools no longer work on the official .exe flasher found on the LiteOn website. You will have to use this on a .BIN or on a specially modified .EXE flasher (which is available for download from our website)
The US0N firmware seems to support more media codes. Interesting additions include the new FUJIFILM03 (the code used by the new popular Datawrite Grey discs--previously unsupported in US0J... people who have these discs should upgrade!... thanks, Hans, for your first test).
Anyway, only a few people have reported back with results so far, so please, post your results! We're all curious to see just how much of an improvement this new firmware is!
Finally, a "burn-adjusted" US0N version has been posted with faster burning times and upshifting fixes for some media types. So try it out, and let us know how it all goes!
