New to NEC, what is best firmware to flash to

As above, my NEC 3500A will be here in two days. I am concerned about ripping speeds and would like a firmware that disables riplock. I mainly use Fuji 8x +r’s (both ricoh and TY versions) to burn with. I’ve searched these forums and there is so many confusing and muddled posts about a million different hacked firmwares. I would like to know what the concensus is as to the best and latest hacked firmware to flash to when I get my drive.
I really appreciate any help that you all can give.



Both my 3500’s are running Herries 2.17-

Works just fine for me-


I got Herrie’s 2.17 on mine also. Has worked awesome so far :slight_smile:
