I just picked up one and flashed it to 1.09 from NEC without reading up on it.
I've been trying to burn the LONGTEN discs from Shop4Tech and have had no success at burning them at 4x. It works at 2x, to some degree, but not 100% success. They work on my Pioneer 105 with no problems at all.
Am I able to still flash it to a different firmware, preferably one that is region-free and no-rip limits? Which one is recommended? Thanks!
