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 ASUS/Pioneer 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.

#12

Same as with 1.21 probably.


#13

Is there a FW1.21 for 112 (no 112D,no 112L) with auto-bitsetting?


#14

ALL firmwares avialable for 112 burner scheme have AUTObitsetting for DVD+R DL media (to DVD-ROM).


#15

I am interested in DVD+R SL bitsetting.


#16

Only Buffalo firmware can do this with 112 drives. See Koba’s sig and download and crossflash your drive. It works great.


#17

Ver.8.21
DVM-RXG18 (ID : PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D)

I have a 112D that I flashed to 112L 8.21.
I can’t seem to flash it to buffalo’s 112D firmwares. ‘Target not found’


#18

???

BUFFALO Firmware is 112L firmware!!


#19

buffalo have 112, 112D, and 112L firmwares as well. OEM pioneer drives.


#20

Just read your question again.

Quite obvious that the outcome was necessary.
