New Liteon 1653S firmware CSTR

1/ Dated 2005/05/01
2/ 289 media codes
3/ Allows OmniPatcher strategy switching of both +R and -R
4/ Supports bitsetting and bitsetting save
5/ Doesn’t fix the overclocking read speed problem at 12x :frowning:
6/ Burn quality - you tell me! :slight_smile:

This is an unofficial release, much like CSTJ was, so don’t expect to find it on Liteon’s site or expect any support from anywhere other than this thread :wink:

cool. flashed my dru710a but i don’t have media to test it :frowning:

@C0deKing
is that a new flasher? it’s nearly 3mb and there is no warning message at the start and when the flash is done.
and why isn’t yudent02->t03 in the recommended media tweaks for CSTR? it uses all the other changes, except for t02…
can some please test tyt02->03?! BYX4 was much better as CS0P with yuden media. maybe CSTR can beat it?


#3

Yudent02->t03 works with omnipatcher v 2.3.1 !
Recommended tweaks list has changed since v 2.4.0.


#4

It might mean CS0R is not too far… but when I see this firmware timestamp it seems that it was made almost with CS0P??? I don’t think it is worth giving a shot.


#5

Yes, thanks to code65536, all of our firmware now uses this flasher.

Some TY02 seems to prefer the strat switch and some the speed increase, so we’ve left it up to the individual to select the preferred method using OmniPatcher.


#6

Gosh, I don’t know how you can say that, almost two weeks is a lot of time for firmware ;). It has 4 additional media codes and fixes an issue I was having with CS0P and MCC004 at 12x in my drive…


#7

Ok, I am giving a shot!!! I still have a few MCC04!


#8

I ammended my post to say MCC004 at 12x, because 16x is still not the best :wink:


#9

your right!!!

I was getting much better result with CS0P : http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=1036194&postcount=179

check the quality and the time in both the above scan and this one!!

===> back to CS0P




#10

has anyone tried the new batches of mcc04? the ones that come in the 100pack spindles?

i still got mine when they first shipped to bestbuy, and from spindle to spindle they are very deffernt in the scans

i am still using csom because thats what i get the best results with

althou i am keen to try this, i just got 200 ttg02’s and they burn good at 8x with csom, but have room for imporivemnt


#11

Hey, there are still some Lite-on boys!

Ok lets run some tests this weekend!

I’ll report the results!


#12

i will do some tests and post them asap when i get the time

most likely today or sunday


#13

Will there be a LED-fix-version of CSTR?


#14

That’s what OmniPatcher is for… :wink:


#15

the ‘old’ flasher is smaller and the warning messages are good for unexperienced users. when the flash is done, there is no info-message.


#16

[off-topic]

We could’ve turned off the warning message on the old flasher, too (and we did disable it in a few instances, too; download the VS0G crossflashing flasher and see for yourself). And we could’ve kept the warning message on the new flasher. But we felt that the content of the warning message was pretty useless. Not to mention very poorly written. So we decided to turn it off.

And what do you mean there’s no info message? :confused: After the flash is done, the new flasher says that it’s done (you have to press OK) and then it asks if you want to reboot or not.

Size doesn’t matter. Compressed size does, however. When RAR’ed, the new flasher is not much bigger than the old.

The old flasher also can’t handle a lot of the newer drives out there. For example, the SOHC-5236K or the SOHD-16P9S. And best of all, the new flasher can help prevent misflashes. Download a 73S or 93S firmware from our website (all the 73S/93S-class firmwares on our website use the new flasher) and try to use that flasher to flash your 1653S. You’ll see that it will refuse to flash–not even FlashFix can force it to flash… incidentally, there’s also been a very sharp decline in “help, I flashed my 53S to a 73S and killed my drive” posts lately… :bigsmile:

Finally, we’ve been using this new flasher for various firmwares for over two months now. Did you just now notice? :wink:
[/off-topic]


#17

Thank you, I download the newest version :slight_smile:


#18

when i flashed CSTR there was no message when the flash was done ?!
i didn’t notice the flasher because i’m using BYX4.


#19

I don’t know why it doesn’t work for you! :confused:
