Default 106 hacked firmware soon

sponsored links

 
Great News The Pioneer DVR-106D hacked firmware is now fully functional
I am happy to have been part of the testing team for this firmware. The latest firmware 1.07 just released this weekend has been hacked to allow 2x burning to any 1x speed media. RPC1 region free and DVD-VIDEO rip speed limit removed, the drive is now enabled to rip at up to 12x speed. I have successfully burnt at 2x speed to Datasafe Classic RitekG03, Choice GSC, Traxdata RITEKG03 and 3A Media. All that remains to be patched now is the Upgrade tool and that should be completed within the next 24 hours and the firmware will then be released.



Don't have the 106 but for all who do it might be interesting,read about this on another forum.

Hmmmm ........ 2 X on 1 X media eh ? .... not sure that is good enough reason to upgrade to unofficial firmware, especialy as 1 X media will be phased out very soon and prices of 4 X are falling all the time (Ridatas in UK = 99p).

Region free & Rip Speed .... again .... not that useful, unless you rip with your burner. Most folk I know rip on a seperate drive.

Following the growing number of people with burnt out 105's and the suspicion of hacked firmware being the cause, I think the question folks need to ask themselves is " are the benefits above worth the risk ?".

I haven't purchased 1 X disks for my 106 and will be sticking to my Ritek G04's, which work perfectly well at 4 X, with original firmware.

I will be curious to see if 4-5 months down the road there aren't a rash of dead 106s (similar to the phenomenon that happened with the 105s in August).

aint to fix it if you happy with 1x np just trying to help others that may wish to burn 2x on 1x media aint no change in the write strategy for 4x with the hacked firmware but the ripping speed is upto 12x but if like me you have hacked roms to rip no bother
