Post new firmware and tool ANNOUNCEMENTS here

To make it easier for people who tune into the forum for firmware and tool updates, I think it would be a good idea for people to make a post in this thread to announce new firmwares and new tools.

That way, people can just subscribe to this thread and be notified whenever a new Samsung firmware or tool comes out.

The ultimate post would contain:

  1. Drive model
  2. Firmware version
  3. Download link to the new firmware
  4. Changelog (Release date and reason)
  5. Link to a discussion thread if one already exists

To receive notification of any announcements, subscribe to this thread by clicking this link.

This thread should be for announcements only. Do not discuss new firmwares in this thread. Posts are subject to deletion without notice if they do not follow this guideline. Ideally, each announcement should have a download link, and, if there is one, a link to that firmware’s discussion and results thread.

says

It is improved that readig problem of DVD-ROM disc wihch is provided by ‘Olidata’.

The “inglis” in the ODD liveupdate is funny too.


#14

… and it seems improve reading it indeed does. DVDs which read before with PIF up to 30 now stay below 10. Still not as good as the same media (burned with SH-S182D) when read in NEC 3520A, but if this means nero will stop reporting errors on data verification - good! :slight_smile: .


#15

Will SB05 fix the Lead in problem?


#16

I have been in contact with Samsung, and asked them to make a “CDFreaks edition” of the firmware SB04 for the [B]SH-S182D[/B], which should have the Lead-In “problem” fixed (mentioned here).

[B]Please notice that this firmware is NOT an official firmware.[/B]

The firmware flasher can be obtained here.

The Firmware SB04 “CDFreaks edition” (dated 9th of November) for the SH-S182D can be downloaded here.
