New model 1673 liteon

#1

I have just ordered the 1673, would you suggest flash to 1693 just as soon as I get it… where do I get the flash…


#2

Go to my site (view in at least 1024x768) and grab Lite-On SOHW-1693S-Patched. It is already crossflashed and speed set to 16x.

You can also get it from here Codeguys . Download the KS04 patched. It will need to be run through Omnipatcher if you want to increase read speed higher than 8x. Note that some 1673S@1693S users report problems when using read speed=16x

thanks for the info… I will go to you site and download the patch for the 1693…I am a computer beginner…can you give me the steps after I download…do I need to have the 1673 in the burner as I download and how do I do the omni patch…would you suggest I go ahead and try the 1673 out of the box first and then decide… any danger of messing up my 1673?


#5

Wait before you try anything serious. Read the sticky threads first of all. Omnipatchers are by no means meant for beginners. FAQ threads are also there for all eyes.


#6

oK, Thanks, guess I will just try it and see how it works… should arrive today…


#7

Is it worth it to reflash from 1673 to 1693 though? Im currently on js07

@ jess russell
I have a couple of SIMPLE readme files on my site, FULLY & EASILY :iagree: explaining how to go about updating. Also SIMPLE :iagree: instructions on how to revert back to original firmware. READ these before you do ANYTHING to your drive.
