Return from sohw832s back to 822s

vbimport

#1

is there a way that i can move back to the original oem firmware?


#2

Yes but you will need a copy of the 822S firmware and the firmware tool.


#3

its not one of those .EXE files, it upgrades through burning the firmware in a cd and restart the computer and start upgrading from reboot. How do i upgrade with that?


#4

I badly need the same file. If someone could email me at jasonborednx@gmail.com that would be great. I’ll send you the right tools if you happen to have the drive and if you want to do a hack to yours.
However, someone ASAP send me a message!


#5

Have just sent it to your e-mail address


#6

Me too, please :slight_smile:

CodeKing :bow: :bow: :bow: & jasonbored, i have to split it into 2 smaller files because I can’t e-mail more than 2MB.


#8

CodeKing :bow: :bow: :bow: ,Pinto2,jasonbored. Have sent all of you proper .bin firmware (vppe), if you couldn’t/can’t use the .exe


#9

For all others go here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&softwareitem=pv-25212-1

This is the proper HP .exe installation file.

Thanks for the VPPE file, The Black Wizard. :smiley:

I’ll check it out as soon I’m back at home.

:wink:

@The Black Wizard
Received the files. Thanks for that :slight_smile:


#12

I think i damaged my 822s. Everytime after I push eject, pop a disc in, then push eject button again to close, the drive would make a noise that sounds like this: “ka jit”

@easy123

Where you having any problems while your drive was crossflashed to a SOHW-832S?


#14

no, but i think i flashed it back and forth too much. Or maybe something to do with the official 832s firmware.


#15

Could just be a mechanical fault unrelated to firmware…


#16

@easy123
Maybe a siily question,
If you were not having any trouble as an 832S, have you crossflashed back since the problem started?

Do you mean flashing back to 822s? If so i havent because i dont have that firmware anymore. I’ve tried using the OEM firmware from HP, but since the drive ID changed, the flash program didnt work. Sigh, if only i have backed up the 822s firmware before cross-flashing it to 832s, then i could return it to the original status.


#19

So just to clarify, your drive, a Lite-On SOHW-822S(HP OEM), is currently crossflashed to a SOHW-832S. You have begun to have problems with the drive as a crossflashed 832S, so you would like to flash back to your ORIGINAL drives firmware.

If this is so, DON’T PANIC :iagree: . I have an original 822S firmware.
Here it is SOHW-822S
Here is a README on updating [Readme](http://dsarteschi.customer.netspace.net.au/How to Update Lite-On&Sony.htm)
Here is a README on LtnFW [Readme](http://dsarteschi.customer.netspace.net.au/How to use Lite-On Flash + Lite-On Region Protection Control.htm)
Hope this helps the cause
