    Question Lite-On iHA424 A revision - flash B firmware ?

    Hi all,

    I have a 424 A revision, and I have read that they are not supported as they are older than the B revision.

    However if I am going to have to buy a new drive anyway I was thinking to attempt to flash the A revision and to make it think it is a B.. is this possible ? I am not worried about potentially bricking it as if it does not work I will buy a new one anyway ..

    I have searched but have not found any guide on this..

    I appreciate the help

    Georgios

    A and B are different chipsets, they cannot be "flashed" to become a different hardware type. just keep it as a spare or sell it. No point in destroying it. C4 may eventually bring out a fw for that model so just buy a 124 and keep the 424 handy

    When I read the release for the firmware it was mentioned that the Y are different chipset and the A are just older and untested ..

    is this not correct ?

    ahh sorry pal got confused, thought there was B and A and thought A was Y. well make a backup of your original 424 fw and go for it. then if all else fails just return it to its original fw (if possible)

    well the problem is that when I just try to flash the new firmware it just fails, so I was wondering whether I need to do anything beforehand to flash the A drive into a B.

    Try following the crossflashing tutorial, I have no idea whether this is possible or not.
    You can find the answer to any flashing question HERE and on the rare occasion that you can't it will definately be HERE

    when I tried to just flash it over it did not work, I will try the cross flash tutorial in the evening and see whether this helps at all ..
