Philips 1628 Crossflashing

Just picked up a Philips PBDV1628G/00 (showing as a DVDR1628P1) and want to cross flash it to a benq 1640. Any guides around on doing this etc, what firmware is a good-un to use.

Cheers

There is a beta firmware for this drive to crossflash in the Dangerous Bros. Site

Cant i just load up a benq1640 firmware (eg BSLB) and flash it?

Yes, with BQflasher!

before flashing it have you tried the latest philips 2.2 FW? It enables solid burns also !!! If you don’t need to scan with this drive you might want to try this FW. Philips has always done good FWs also!

So crossflashing with Benq firmware enables all features in Qsuite?

Unlike the Plextor or Sony rebadges which don’t fully functional with Qsuite?

Couldn’t really find the answer in other threads…

I doubt you can use the Qscan but the other features should be active.

Flashed the philips with BSLB, Q Scan avaliable and working,
