#3

the firmware is one day newer than CS0M. but there are missing 4 mediacodes…


#4

An unscrambled version of JY03, that works with OmniPatcher, is now available on my site.

Note: This firmware is for 720A and 1673S only.


#5

So it wouldn’t be a good idea to flash my 1613S to this? :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

So i can flash my Liteon SOHW-1673S whit this … ? :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

Test 6: (Princo 4x Burnt At 8x)

Just For Fun I Used DVDRW Omnipatcher v1.4.1 To Apply The Rec_tweak-2-14 To Gain:
PRINCO /52 [ 4x ] -> PRINCO8X01 /52 :smiley:



#16

not too bad even with Princo 4x at 8x…!!


#17

Yeah Pretty Good For Cheap And Nasty Discs.
It Would Be Interesting What The Scan Of That Princo Would Look Like In 6 Months Time.

Sony JY03 Firmware Does Bitsetting.

But I Could Not Set It Permeant With BookType135 (+R To DVD-ROM)
The Tick Box For Save Settings Is Grayed Out With Sony JY03.
Once I Rebooted PC I Have To Run BookType135 To Regain Bitsetting.

DVDRW Omnipatcher v1.4.1 Had Bitsetting Option Available For Sony JY03.
Which I Believe Maybe A Bug With Omnipatcher v1.4.1 And Sony JY03.
I Could Be Wrong But I Think It Should Be Greyed Out Like It Is With The Lite-On xxx3S Series Of Drives.


#18

Sony JY03 can auto bitseting in Nero 6.6.0.12 .


#19

You Can Also Use Nero CD-DVD Speed v3.80 For Bitsetting But It’s Never Permeant.
Once You Rebooted PC You Have To Set Bitsetting Again. :confused:


#20

Firstly, sorry I couldn’t reply before now. It’s Saturday here and I like to spend time with my family in the weekends ;).

Nice scans. Thanks for sharing them :).

The bitsetting not being greyed is not a bug. The option is only greyed if the firmware supports permanent save. If it does support permanent save, then the auto bitsetting option is not required, as the drive will hold the setting itself. Since JY03 does not support permanent save the option is available ;).
