Alaska Wolf -> Cross Flashing Question (5/15/2006 8:09:34 PM)

Hi, I'm a newbie to this, so please don't yell if my questions sound stupid. :)  I have an LG GWA-4164B in my new Dell XPS, its supposed to read dual layer DVDs...but it doesn't.  I've read a couple of articles about cross flashing the drive with the LG CSA-4166B firmware, which would supposedly allow for use of DVD-RAM, as well as dual layer support.  Can this really be done?  I've looked at some of the firmware code and seen a reference to 4164 in there, however the LG provided firmware loader absolutely refuses to load the updated firmware.  So, assuming it is possible, exactly how would I cross flash from the 4164 to the 4166?

Probably MP3 Mogul can help with crossflashing

Yes it is possible.

You will need a firmware.  If you PM me with your email address, I will send you the firmwares you will need.  The first will be for firmware 1.01 and then 1.02... 1.01 will "have" to be done first.
