Should I flash for Libre Support? WH16NS40 1.00 Firmware

Post by goaliebob99 » Sat Nov 23, 2019 5:16 pm

I have a WH16NS40 that reads UHD bluray's fine. It was manufactured in October 17th of 2015 and has SVC Code NS50. Should I flash this for libre support?

If yes do I upgrade to 1.3 via offical LG upgrade, and then cross flash to the Mk version, or should I just leave this drive alone and let it be?

Per what you post above from the MakeMKV info window:

So, as it is clearly telling you it’s already enabled. What other Libredrive support are you looking for or expecting to enable exactly?
