[QUOTE=chompy;2567515]And us the europeans, whom had to purchase the Plextor clone (PX-B940SA) in order to have a “BDR-205” only have version 1.08

Great support Plextor :Z:Z:Z

Is there any way to crossflash this new firmware to PX-B940SA?

Greetings[/QUOTE]

I’m afraid not :frowning:

There’s no kernel available for the BDR-205 and/or BDR-S05 to allow a PX-B940SA --> BDR-205/BDR-S05 crossflash … ironically there is a kernel for the PX-B940SA so a BDR-205/BDR-S05 --> PX-B940SA crossflash would be possible …

Only a matter of time, like many other things. :wink:

PLDS DVDRWBD DH-6E2S Firmware Dumps

FW: AD16 (DELL OEM, Internal date: 2009/05/15)

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?sigfnobafd71u57

FW: 7D12 (DELL OEM, Internal date: 2010/01/09, newest)

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?iivbjct66m2u1jm

[B]Note:[/B] DH-6E2S is an iHES106 clone. The latest iHES106 AL0A firmware is dated 2009/01/08, so it is a year older than the 7D12. The official 7D12 flasher from Dell can be used to flash Dell OEM drives with ADxx firmware on board without any problems.

Any corresponding update for the iHBS 212?


#211

Having seached the forums here and at rpc1.org there is virtually no mention of the LG BE08LU20 writer…

There is an official LG firmware 2.00 on the rpc1 archives but no discussion as to whether there is either an rpc1 patched firmware, an rpc2 auto reset firmware or any other modifications possible for this drive.

I recall some time ago being told that the BE08LU20 could be flashed with an alternative LG drive model’s firmware but cannot find anywhere any information about this…

As there are a few people here with in depth firmware knowledge I wondered if anyone knows the options for this drive. I hope this isn’t too off topic… :rolleyes: Hopefully the information would be useful in this thread to other BE08LU20 owners.

Regards
