Here are some new LiteOn and rebadged LiteOn firmwares…

SOHW-1633S:

BS0R
BYX2
C7S3
GSBC
GS0P
QS5A

Important notes… please read!

  • BS0R does not support 4x +R DL or 12x -R. Only the BS4x firmware series intended for the American market have these enhancements. BS0R is the firmware upgrade intended for non-American markets and does not contain these enchancements. Personally, I would recommend sticking with the enhanced BS4x firmwares.
  • BS0R, like BS41, features the new enhanced bitsetting that remembers your settings even when you reboot or flash your firmware. As a result, the auto-bitsetting patch has been disabled for BS0R. Please see the [thread=115896]BS41 thread[/thread] for more details about this.
  • BYX2, like BS41, features the 4x +R DL and 12x -R enhancements. It does not appear to feature the bitsetting enhancements seen in BS41 and BS0R; C7S3 also does not appear to feature these bitsetting enhancements.
  • QS5A is only for [thread=85712]rev. 2 drives[/thread]… the latest firmware for rev. 1 drives is still QS0E. Don’t worry if you don’t know what revision your drive is; the official flasher will know and will do the right thing.

Thanks!


#3

PHILIPSC16 at 12X only still! :Z
This should be supported at 16X already!


#4

:stuck_out_tongue: “OP friendly version” :stuck_out_tongue: .GREAT WORK Codeguys :bow:


#5

Only for American market… :frowning:
Stupid political.


#6

Updated the first post to add the (very) new BYX2 firmware for the Sony DRU-710A (rebadged SOHW-1633S). The firmware has a very new timestamp (Nov. 24, wow!). Unfortunately, it is not fully compatible with OmniPatcher 1.3.17 (OP seems to have some problems reading the 4 +R media tables). This should hopefully be remedied in 1.3.18 (no ETA available).

Edit: 1.3.18 has been posted and now fully supports the BYX2 firmware.


#7

And for those interested, just released 2+ hours ago - new firmware for TDK 1612DLB (Liteon 1653S OEM), click!

Improvements & Fixes.

  1. Added support for new DVD-R media
  2. Added support for new DVD+R media
    3 Auto Booktype settings to DVD-ROM for DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD+RW
  3. Improve the write strategy for DVD+R and DVD-R media

#8

But there’s nothing stopping you from downloading and using BS41. :wink:


#9

Thanks! Wow, a timestamp of December 2 (although it’s still old in the sense that it appears to be a “branch” build based on an old branch and not a “trunk” build based on the very latest)!

I see that this firmware is hosted at the Hardware Zone. Has it been officially released? If so, do you have an official download link for it?

Philips C16 8x and MKM001 4x. :rolleyes:

Don’t worry, this is indeed the official firmware from TDK SG.

Somehow TDK SG have the habit of hosting at HWZ as a sticky since they are the paid sponsors of the forum. Kind of raise awareness of TDK updates and besides, TDK SG webguys are rather slow in updating the official website.

This firmware was urgently rushed out due to the lack of support in the original 1612DLB for TDK’s own 8x DVD-R (TTG02 dye) - may just sound kind of ironic to us but to lots of anguished noobs who bought the 1612DLB, they were hopping mad and just couldn’t understand why TDK burners don’t support TDK media.

:slight_smile:


#12

Well, as I noted, it’s really an old firmware. Despite its timestamp, even BS41’s media support and write strategy tables are more up-to-date.


#13

post deleted, my mistake… mind couldn’t alt-tab as fast as my fingers. :smiley:


#14

code, cannot seem to change media codes with the new sony BYX2, double click to change there strats and nothing happens


#15

As a safeguard, strat changing is disabled if OP ever encounters a problem loading the firmware. When you loaded the firmware, you should have received a warning message about OP-1.3.17 not being able to read all of the media code tables. I posted about this issue earlier in the thread (post #6); this should be addressed in 1.3.18 (which I’m in the process of uploading right now)…

Edit: OP-1.3.18 is posted…

hello code65536 …

so i use the tdk firmware ??

and uh … this TDK Drive doesnt support 4x +DL for many media … what gives??

does the tried and tested 1633s firmware have 4x +DL and 16x DVD-R for all media?

or should i just flash it with BS4X and get it over with?? … i hope i can expect some good writing quality … and some better speeds too …

a full 4.3gb @ 4x dvd+r takes 15minutes … thats slow i guess …

#18

Or BYX2. Try and see which one is better; BYX2 looks a lot more promising. But I don’t know since I don’t have the time to test out all these new firmwares, and nobody else has posted test results…

And the only 2 DL media on the market are MKM and Ritek. Ritek is crap. MKM is at 4x. This is how it’s like with all the other burners and all the other firmwares.

#20

ok … im trying BYX2 …

so i just download the BYX2 firmware file … and flash it no questions asked with OP right?

what does the "increase dvd+r9 bla bla bla speed to 12x in OP mean??

should i enable that?
