With my 5006 now filling in for my hacked 5005, I checked the SN to try and figure out what I’ve got.
Seems I’ve got firmware 90 on it. [SN: 0104-1140-0090-F2SC(003-010B)]
Someone’s told me you can’t use the current firmware from the LiteOn site because it prevents hacking.
I do still have (on my computer) the firmware from when I upgraded my 5005, tho’. It’s got the file name Lnfa1098.es5.
Now, I remember that LiteOn showed two different styles to the SN’s, and which your machine had would affect what firmware you should use to upgrade.
If the SN style of my 5006 is the same as that of my 5005, would I be able to use the old Lnfa1098.es5 file to upgrade AND HACK my 5006? Or would this be too chancey?
