New firmware version 1.03 for the portable writer DVR-XD09J.

C0deKing has graciously added a Pioneer Japanese FW page to the top post, also see link and list below.

DVR-S15J / DVR-A15J
DVR-S12J / DVR-A12J
DVR-A11-J / DVR-A10-J / DVR-A09-J

I just downloaded a DVR-S15J 1.22 FW from that page and successfully crossflashed my DVR-215D with MCSE and DVRFlash (using kernel from here). The result was recognized in WinXP as DVR-215L, RCP1 patch is functional but bitsetting patch has so far not worked.

In any case the EXE files used by Pioneer Japan are easily unpacked with WinRAR and contain the NORMAL FW file! :slight_smile: Hope this helps others!

Its very nice of Pioneer to give us the media support list for FW 1.08 (DVR-217) but I would have been far more impressed if they would actually release the firmware! :rolleyes: They haven’t even released FW 1.07 officially … yet they’re teasing us with the media support list for FW 1.08 … dear oh dear! :doh:

C’mon Pioneer you Grinch! :stuck_out_tongue: Do an effort … its Christmas after all :bigsmile:
