Philips spd2410l1 @ LiteOn SHM-165P6S

hey guys

i’ve just bought this Philips spd2410L1 drive and found out at this forum that it is a clone of the LiteOn SHM-165P6S.

Till now, i had no problems with the original philips firmware (is it this (rev.m5p4-thing?).

My questions:

  1. Is is possible to flash this drive with the firmware from the lite-on homepage or do I need a patched firmware.
  2. if yes, where to get a patched one?
  3. would you recommend to flash my philips device or would you say the “never change a running system”-maxim ?
