i bought an DRW-24B1ST it cames with FW 1.04
and i’m unable to crossflash it to liteon ihas124/324 for the LT MAX BURNER FOR XBOX 360.
DRW-24B1ST a version
i see all success with 1.03 fw but i cant downgrade since i need to downgrade the EEPROM too but i dont have it’s binary only the fw 1.03 i have.
BTW , IF SOMEONE CAN SEND ME HIS 1.03 EEPROM, TO TRY Please
when i hit convert drive in the eeprom utility and restart, i’m trying to flash iHAS124_A.BL0A.stock.exe it flashes, but only the fw version is changed to 0A24 and the drive is stuck with the green led on
and the brand is still asus DRW-24B1ST displayed, drive is dead, i can only restore to the backup, cant success crossflash
please tell me what should i do to get it crossflashed successfuly.
Thanks , deliad[/QUOTE]
Let’s clarify a few things before you kill or impair your drive for good…
[U]Always[/U] backup [U]both[/U] your firmware and your EEPROM before doing anything, and keep those backups safe!!!
Typically DRW-24B1ST with firmware 1.04 are B series drives
Typically DRW-24B1ST with firmware 1.03 or lower are A drives
You can’t crossflash between A drives and Bdrives - the two series have different chipsets/hardware
The LT MAX BURNER firmware is only for B drives
I doubt you can see any ‘success’ for DRW-24B1ST drives with firmware 1.03, since those drives will be A drives and the LT MAX BURNER firmware is only for B drives
The EEPROM of each drive is [U]unique[/U] as it contains calibration data unique to that drive. As such, [U]never ever[/U] flash the EEPROM of one drive to another!!!
Don’t mess with the EEPROM other than playing with the Convert Drive feature, and make sure you know what you’re doing before doing it.
The statement about having to downgrade the EEPROM is incorrect
The correct crossflash procedure is to flash the new firmware first and then use the Convert Drive feature, not the other way around!
