Old Firmware for my Pionner S09XLT and S08XLT

Hello
I’m a Newbie here and I see there are a lot of passionate.
It seems that Burners, Disks and Graphs are your everyday hobby…

3 months ago, I burned 2 spindle of 50 pieces with 100% success with 1.34 firmware with my Pioneer S09XLT.
Those discs are not the best I know but I was really surprised.
MID: RITEK-DR2-000 (DL)

Now my Pioneer has 1.52 firmware.
I thought the quality and the compatibility with different discs would be better !
Now my Pioneer can’t burn Ritek disks (errors on the 2nd layer).

Please

First Request
I want to downgrade my PIONEER model BDR-S09XLT
Actual Firmware : 1.52
Needed Firmware : 1.34 or older

Second Request (if possible)
I want to downgrade my PIONEER model BDR-S08XLT
Actual Firmware : 1.50
Needed Firmware : 1.30 or older

As you know, I can’t downgrade with the official Pioneer Firmware.
So Thank you very much.

May be I should have done a 2 different requests. Sorry.
I can split with 2 different subjects.

Dunno if the S09 is identical with 09XLT

@Tester_1 : Thanks

But I already have those files and my Pioneer Drive refuses to downgrade.
The message is : Already up to date

As you certainly know, you can’t downgrade with the official Pioneer Firmware.

Once upgraded, you can’t downgrade with official Pioneer Firmware.
That’s why I asked for help.

Never tried a downgrade

Maybe you find info here

@Tester_1 : Thank You Again

That’s exactly what I read and that’s what I want.

I Thought the zip file has to be generated with DVRTool and all the info I gave above.
I will try and tell you if I succeed or not.
