I have a stock NEC3520A with 1.04 firmware and just wanted to confirm the following before I do flash it. I want to be able to have bit setting , RPC1 and Riplock removed. I guess my options are the following
1.25 from TDB
1.U8 from Liggy and Dee
Are there any other options? Which one is the safest one? Also, do I need to reinstall my drivers after I reflash?
Finally is the following procedure correct for flashing the drive:
1. Get the flashers (binflash for U8 or TDB flasher) and the firmware
2. Backup the original firmware
3. Boot into Dos
4. Run the flasher and flash the drive
Will I need to reinstall drivers? Also does the 1.25 (which is based on IOData) from TDB change my drive from NEC to IOData?
Thanks in advance!!!
if you go to scorpio's
site, it has all the different firmwares for the 3520 and what features it has.
If you have winxp, after the flash/reboot, it will automatically detect and install the drivers again (atleast thats what happened for me).
Im not sure which is the safest so no comment.
to flash your drive, i find getting binflash GUI to be much easier because you can do a flash with a couple of clicks. Its also on the same site.
