My Pioneer 107D with Nil’s 1.10 hacked firmware was performing perfect burns on RiTEKG04 media at 4x for the last month. I was getting flat graph burns around the 30 PI / 8 PO mark on a consistant basis with complete confidence.
Stupidly, I thought I’d update to the legit version of the 1.13 firmware to check out Pioneer’s new 8x media selections while waiting for Nil’s release of the 1.13 firmware. I wasn’t really using the extra features of the hacked firmware at the moment anyway.
My burns went to crap in a heartbeat. They were still within specs… just… but they were nowhere near as good as the 30/8 results I was getting before.
Based on this, I went back to the hacked 1.10 firmware thinking this would fix the problem, I mean it could only put me back where I was before, right? But my results are now the same as with the 1.13 firmware. I’m now getting variable results on an upward slope usually around 50-300PI and 12-20PO.
I can’t get the burner to give me my previous results, even at 2x, let alone 4x. Nothing else on the system, or with the discs, has changed, but the firmware, and the firmware I went back to is exactly the same file I had used on it the first time.
Can anyone explain to me why has this happened, and if there’s a way I can put it back the way it was??
