UHD or not?
Thanks.
Could you provide us a valid link for testing the 3.03 firmware version ?

Edit:
I've found it on Asus website (support page) and I've flashed it and I have to say few words:

"Be Aware from 3.03". It fixed the AACS loophole making your drive unable to read UHD discs !!!!

Now I've to use DosFlash and reflash the old firmware, with the hope it will read UHDs again.
you can downflash , and I hope the loophole fix will be erased "fingercrossed"

I've used now my dosflash modded DOS version and I've successfully flashed the old backup firmware.
Now I can read UHD discs again. :wink:

Was this achieved using the programs in the zip file you posted over at the Redfox forums a while back + a dump of the original firmware?

So 3.02 is still good but 3.03 is a killer?

I have 3.01...can anyone point me to 3.02, which I guess is the last "safe" version to use. Are people ripping UHD fine with 3.02. I'd just like to be sure.

thx

Thanks. Just to verify, 3.02 is safe for UHD ripping? Thanks.

Yes, 3.02 is the LAST firmware update you will ever take on that drive. Do NOT do anything beyond it.

Can you describe the procedure you used to crossflash your LG's?

If you want to flash your drive from 3.01 to 3.00 this modified flasher and bin file will do it from link below

Code: Select all

http://www84.zippyshare.com/v/7MsNUYNo/file.html

For more NFO read this for Asus and LG Drives

Code: Select all

https://forum.cdrinfo.pl/f29/crossflash-blu-ray-lg-serii-ns50-ns51-ns55-ns58-96313/
Just tried this and get the message "Write DRAM NG 05/24/00".

My operating system is Windows10 64bit.
Any ideas for solving this?
