# New Sony 710A firmware BYX4

**crr2457**#1

**bichonn**#3

-This is weird, with this FW my IDE light blinks at the same time with my drive light.

- It seems slow (at least with the media bellow)
- With this media the scan i not as good as with csom.

-Since I have 50 of those ===> back to csom

**C0deKing**#5

Thanks crr2457 for the heads up on this one

An unscrambled version of BYX4 is now available on my site that will work with OmniPatcher v1.4.1. Also a sneak peak of the new OmniPatcher Firmware Information dialog plus a Sony T02 burned using BYX4 in a 1213S.

**bichonn**#7

@ codeking,

Have got an idea why my ide light was blinking with my drive light with this FW? I am not talking about the dead drive blinking light !!! The drive was fworking fine but when burning or reading, the ide light was blinking with the drive light.

Note that I unscrambled it my self (since yours was not out yet). I did not use the omnipatcher but it worked fine (see second and third post) ?!?

**C0deKing**#8

Sony firmware has additional code in the LED routine that sets the IDE pin for the LED. I don’t know why and I don’t know why only the Sony firmware has it but it is quite normal.

I wondered about how you flashed your drive. Thought you must have flashed BYX3 from my site first and then this BYX4. How did you do it?

**bichonn**#9

I ran it through flashfix 11111 and just flashed the drive. The omnipatcher was not working with it.

The strangest is that I flashed it back to CSOM with the unscrambled version (without the omnipatcher) ?!?

**C0deKing**#10

Yeah, that would work too, because BYX4 does not need to be crossflashed to work in a 1633S.

Oh, do you mean the stock CS0M, without crossflash enabled?

**bichonn**#11

I used CSOM fron your site, but I did not run the omnipatcher to crossflash. Was it just unscrambled or was it also crossflash enabled?

**C0deKing**#16

Yes, but not the save feature. You can use “Auto bitsetting” in OmniPatcher if you require this.

**Diseree**#17

1633@BYX4, ProdiscR04, 12x. It is not so bad. But with RicohjpnW11(+RW 4x), I made a coaster again (fotunately, this is RW!).

**mauricetgol**#20

mmmm…

I think its to early to judge…

Not sure if I am gonna swap…

I am going to look @ your pictures boys…
