New firmwares added

After not spending much time on patching for quite a while, here’s another bunch of firmwares that have been added. The following files were made available:

  • NEC ND-4550A firmware 1.84
  • Optiarc AD-5970H firmware 3APH and 3APHb
  • Optiarc AD-7201S firmware 1H0B
  • Optiarc AD-7203S firmware 1.B0
  • Optiarc AD-7230S firmware 1.83
  • Optiarc AD-7250S firmware 1.D3
  • Optiarc AD-7590A firmware 1.V1
  • Optiarc AD-7740H firmware A842
  • Optiarc AD-7760H firmware 1.50
  • LiteOn iHAS120X firmware FL01
  • LiteOn iHAS122W firmware PL02, PL06, PL07, PL08 PL09
  • LiteOn iHAS124W firmware HL04, HL05, HL08, HL0A and HL0F
  • LiteOn iHAS324W firmware HL12, HL16 and HL18

For all firmwares RPC1 and Auto-Reset firmwares are available, riplock patches were added for all slimline drive firmwares. Bitsetting patches are available for the ND-4550A, AD-7203S, AD-7250H, AD-7590A and AD-7740H firmwares.

The LiteOn firmwares require certain bootcodes to be present on the drive. Binflash will refuse flashing if the drive’s bootcode does not match the expected bootcode.

New Binflash version and another bunch of firmwares

Binflash has been updated to version 1.63 to include support for the LiteOn iHAS124 W drive. Before Optiarc decided to go out of business, this drive probably should have been named Optiarc AD-7320S. Flashing this drive has not been tested yet, so there is a slight chance that this will not work properly. This drive does not use the NEC/Optiarc bitsetting commands, so bitsetting is not supported by Binflash and no bitsetting patches are available. Chances are however (yet unverified) that the drive will support LiteOn bitsetting commands, so e.g. Nero DiscSpeed might work instead. Also the RPC1 patch could potentially be broken, in this case please use auto-reset firmware instead.

Also the following firmwares have been added:

All the firmwares include RPC1 and Auto-Reset patches, several firmwares also have bitsetting patches. Please check the firmware details page on the drive overview
