The New LiteOn/PLDS Patched Firmware Thread

In this thread you will find all of the latest patched firmwares for LiteOn drives.

Please also let me know, if you know of, or have, a later firmware than what is posted here. :flower:

Make sure you subscribe to this thread to be notified of the latest releases. You can click on this link to quickly subscribe to this thread.

FR = Fast read (18x SL)
FB = Fast burn (12x PCAV)
EOS = Enhance Over Speed (not all media will burn well at the write speeds offered)
SCR = Strategy Change Recalibrate
EOHT = Enhanced OHT

Note:
All the patched firmware has a leadout fix that can save as much as 30 seconds of an 8x burn.
FB (Fast Burn) is a power option and increases burn speed, sometimes, at the expense of burn quality.

Released: iHAS/iHAP 122/222/322/422 FR EOHT 8 firmware.





Thanks CK.

You’re welcome KTL. Here’s a little something special for iHAS220 owner watching this thread. An experimental firmware version 8LC1. The first time I’ve reversioned a firmware since the quality patch for the SOHW-832S. :wink:

Here’s an 18x result (All on): :slight_smile:




Thank you C0deKing.

Will have a play this week. :slight_smile:

Nice, patching now and gonna burn a few to test it out :wink: Thanks for this CK! :flower:

EDIT: patched and rebooting! :smiley:

CK, I tried to flash 7LC1, but the drive got into a state where the tray wouldn’t open nor the LED blink after a reboot, then showed 0L05 firmware (assumed in safe/boot mode). Tried reflashing 7LC1 but same result, reflashed with patched 7L0F and everything was fine. Luckily, it didn’t die like last time.

My iHAS220 survived the reboot and now shows 8LC1 as its installed firmware. I’m just preparing a few disc images to burn. :wink: There must be something wrong with the firmware for the iHAS120, CK might be able to shed some light on it.

20B1LT @ iHAS220
FW: 8LC1
MID: DAXONAZ3
Burn Speed: 20x CAV
Settings: SB/FHT/OS/OHT on




Hey CK, the experimental 7LC1/8LC1 firmware doesn’t support bitsetting through EEPROM Utility 4.1.0?

[QUOTE=C0deKing;2230445][B]Requests for patches can be made in this thread but I’d prefer scans be shown in the normal scan threads, unless you want to show a problem you think is related to a patch.[/B][/QUOTE]

Ok, I’m posting a few scans over at the iHAS120/220 thread. :flower:

Thanks for the reports and scans. :flower:

I’ve just about finished 7LC2/8LC2, which now supports bitsetting and fixes the 12x burn quality bug. :slight_smile:

Fixing the 12x bug now opens they way for PCAV 12x burning as well, but I’m focusing on quality at the moment.

Here’s a 12x burn of PRODISC R04 using 8LC2 (All on):




iHAS120 7LC2 FR EOHT 8
Prodisc PRODISC R04, 16x media burned at 18x, All on

Now this is more like it should be. :iagree:

I might just wait for 8LC2 before burning some more discs :stuck_out_tongue:

There we go, 2 updates I’d love to test and have a go at. :wink: Will flash and reboot, expect a few scans within the next hour. :smiley:

spotted something in the firmware
the Lite-on smart burn utility and even the nero and the lightScribe tools says the drive has LS capability

my guess since the hardware index is missing this is a false suppourt


[QUOTE=websh;2231209]spotted something in the firmware

Thanks. My base firmware supports lightscribe, so it will report this, even though it won’t work without the index hardware. It has no effect on anything else. I’ll try at some stage to make it report that it isn’t a lightscribe drive. :wink:

I’m unsure if it’s the drive or the firmware, but I’ve only found out now that my iHAS220 and firmware 8LC2 loves -R media (if that’s even possible :p). :smiley: Posted a new scan of -R media. :slight_smile:
