[QUOTE=KTL;2102537]FYI, since this is official A15J firmware, there is NO bitsetting applied to +R and +RW. You still need to use MSCE to enable bitsetting.
The Buffalo firmware had bitsetting built-in because it was requested from Pioneer, thus, flashing to a ‘L’ firmware gained the setting.
With that said, if bitsetting is all you need, then there’s no reason to flash it to an A15J, just MSCE’d the 115D 1.18 firmware for bitsetting, save it, and run the executable.
FWIW, I was able to flash the 115D to 115 or 115L using DVRFlash 2.6.1 through command prompt window (WXP), no safe mode needed. Of course, DVRFlash was ran first without the parameters making sure the correct drive location was identified.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the tip – I’ll MSCE the 115D with the 1.18 f/w for bitsetting – as soon as I get the NEXT unit. I assume the only (and correct) file I’ll need is [B]A0814001.118[/B], right? The [I]A0814000.113[/I] kernel isn’t necessary – right again? (golly, for all the time I’ve been perusing CDFreaks, I feel stoopid!)
