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 LG 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.

Unfortunatelly, only Windows Vista support added for those drives above :frowning:

I’m waiting for some improvements of 16x writting for my H20L. It’s seems to be so hard for LG engineers to make some improvements for these drives …
I’m still hoping …


#6

I think the important part is getting firmware available for us H22L users, so now we can mod some burning strategies! (stupid RitekF1)

@ala42

New Vista compatible firmwares/flasher:
GSA-E10L - LE07
GSA-E10N - JE07

Are these the same as the previous versions, only made compatible for Vista?
Or were other improvements made to reading and writing as well?


#9

At least the media tables differ at bit.


#10

Can i use JE07 for my LG H10N because of UDMA4 and new media codes?

richman :slight_smile:


#11

Using this firmware into an H10N will allow better handling of 1394/USB bridges ? using JJ11/JL11 the max write rate is 14-14.5x.

I just bought this burner today. It works fine, but the lack of support for it on the LG website had me a bit irked. I found the above firmware link after searching for a bit. I’ve applied it & it worked fine (IE: no damage to the burner). Best I can tell, benchmarking with Sandra Lite, it reduced the DVD seek time quite a bit. I’m not as technically proficient as you folks with tweaking & benchmarking drives, so if anyone tries this firmware & can see any other benefits or negative effects, please let everyone know.
