CG4E - Quality Patched Firmware
The Official Thread
What is it
CGxx firmware is the latest 832S Liteon firmware that has been patched to improve burn quality by optimising shift points and by implementing a stepped recalibrate. The stepped recalibrate stops the burn periodically to recalibrate, which means shorter periods where the drive has to maintain the correct optical power control. From CG4x onwards both +R/W and -R/W have the recalibrate feature. All speeds are supported (2x-8x).
As before, PLEASE don’t rush out and try your worst media overclocked to the max. Let’s start off by displaying scans of media at it’s rated speed, Ricoh R01 being the exception.
New Features in CG4x
1/ Optimised force shift
2/ Optimised -R/+R shift points
3/ Optimised recalibrate
4/ Faster burning (compared to CG3x)
5/ Stepped recalibrate for DVD-R/W
Changes in CG4x/R2
Fixed DVD-RW format issue
1/ RICOHJPNR01 increased to 8x burn speed
2/ RICOHJPNR01 fallback disabled
3/ MCC02RG20 fallback disabled
Please read the documentation enclosed in the package, for more details. The old CG3x thread can be found [thread=121345]here[/thread].

- This firmware is experimental and is not supported or condoned by the drive manufacturer. You will void your drive’s warranty if you use this firmware.
- The drive’s light will blink orange more often during the burn and some additional PIF spikes are inevitable on some drives, due to the relinking after the recalibrate.
