Firmware Extractor 2

Post by SamuriHL » Fri Feb 22, 2019 5:34 am

What is it:

A program that allows you to extract firmware bin files from LG and ASUS official flashers. In addition, it will also create Downgrade Enabled (DE) firmware bin files from what is extracted OR a firmware bin file you open.

Usage:

Extract it somewhere, and run it. It will prompt you to open a bin or exe file. Select the LG or ASUS flasher executable you want to extract from OR select a firmware bin that needs to be downgrade enabled.

Examples:

Open WH16NS60.exe (which is the official 1.01 firmware flasher) and you will get HLDS_JB9_BRAND_1.01-00_NOBJ.bin. A HLDS_JB9_BRAND_1.01-00_NOBJ_DE.bin file is NOT written in this case, because the 1.01 firmware is already DE.

Open ASUS ODD FW Updater for BW-16D1HT.exe (which is the official 3.02 firmware flasher) and you will get ASUS ODD FW Updater for BW-16D1HT.bin AND ASUS ODD FW Updater for BW-16D1HT_DE.bin. The _DE version has been patched for downgrade enabled, where as the non _DE version is the original factory firmware bin.

Open flash_ASUS_BW-16D1HT_3.00.bin and will get flash_ASUS_BW-16D1HT_3.00_DE.bin which is downgrade enabled.

Enjoy and let me know if there are any issues. I expect most people won't need this utility, but, I put it out there for those that may.
