[QUOTE=Witchdoctor6969;2775366] And as for the ASUS drives, from what I’ve seen of them here in the GREAT WHITE NORTH, they’re rebranded LG drives.[/QUOTE]
Recent asus dvd drive models are actually LiteOn iHAS124 F rebadges. (Though current Asus bluray drive models appear to be LG rebadges).
In particular, the ASUS DRW-24F1ST c models with a -U22, -U29, or -29 suffix with manufacturing dates from August 2015 to February 2016. (They all have a “Factory ID: B” which appears to be LiteOn).
I’ve done a lot of crossflashing on my Asus DRW-24F1ST c with -U22 suffix and September 2015 manufacturing date, with firmwares originally for LiteOn iHAS124 F and other rebadges (ie. Plextor PX-891SAF).
