Lite-On iHAS B & Cross-Flashable Drive Models Compatible with c4eva's iXtreme Burner MAX Firmware for XGD3

c4eva's "iXtreme Burner MAX" customized PC DVD burner fw allows for burning 100% of an XGD3 ISO to regular DVD+R DL discs. Preferred media for error-free burns are Verbatim MKM001 (burning at 2.4x), and Verbatim MKM003 (burning at 2.4x or 4x). Note: "A" versions have MTK chipset, but are old and untested. "Y" versions have the NEC chipset, which is not supported. All regular features of the burner function as normal, including LightScribe, LabelTag, Smart-Erase, Smart-Burn, Smart-X, and SuperAllWrite. Even with the custom iXtreme Burner MAX fw flashed to the drive, it is still fully functional as a regular burner, not only for XGD3, but also XGD2, and all other ISOs and data, up to 8.7GB worth.

Cross-Flashable Models

In addition to the normal Lite-On iHAS "B" burners, there are several other drive models of different brands that can be cross-flashed to an iHAS by using the original Lite-On iHAS firmware and EEPROM utilities. These cross-flashable drives are re-badged OEM drives, which means they are manufactured by Lite-On and contain the same internal hardware and components as the Lite-On iHAS, but are sold under a different brand name (ASUS, Dell, HP, Plextor, TEAC), some with a different faceplate/bezel on the front of the drive, and/or with different retail packaging.

Please note that the cross-flashable drive models marked with a * in the list below have multiple revisions, of which only the "B" revision is supported. Revision "Y" (NEC chipset), "A" (older MTK chipset), "C" (MTK chipset/1MB flash), and "D" (MTK chipset/1MB flash) are not compatible. c4eva's custom Burner MAX firmware is based on the Lite-On iHAS "B" revision which has an MTK chipset with 2MB flash.

The revision letter is usually indicated somewhere on the retail box and also on the label sticker on the drive itself. For some drives, the revision letter is part of the drive model, or appears near or after the end of the drive model on the label sticker. Depending on when a particular model was manufactured and the retail destination country/region, the configuration and placement of the stickers may be slightly different; different arrangement, dual barcodes, different certification logos, and so on. If you are purchasing a cross-flashable drive online or from a retail store, you should have customer service or the salesperson check the label on the box or the sticker on the drive to ensure that it is in fact a "B" revision.

Please refer to the gallery of images below the list for examples of some of the different revisions' drive label stickers and box labels.

The following drive models are confirmed capable of being cross-flashed with c4eva's iXtreme Burner MAX firmware:




iHAS322* (thanks to Hasham, Risay, and Kingston for confirming)
DH-16ABSH11B (thanks to Charles for confirming)

    with all due respect to the work of c4eva, but I think it's time to renew the cfw to current models, ie do more cfw different from other models!

      There are tons of B's still out there, and that amount increases exponentially when you add in the cross-flashable models. There's really no shortage of these drives, so it makes no sense for him to put time right now into trying to re-do it for the newer revisions. Time spent on 360 drive fw takes priority. So, with all due respect, if you can't find one, you're not looking hard enough. ;)

    Hello Admin and the c4evaspeaks group,

    Iam really thankful for all your work :)
    I have a question though, I googled, checked forums etc. You have stated that the required cache is 2mb for burner max, however this model ASUS DRW-24B3ST, ALL of the drives have 1.5mb cache and nothing less, also theres no info whether there are B or A drives etc. My question is, if 1.5mb is the available cache for these drives, would it be compatible? also do these drives have chipset revision too like the ihas series? Thank you so much guys <3

      No bluray burners will do it as of yet. It doesn't matter how new they are. C4e has written firmware for the specific drives that burn the games. The burner must be capable of using his firmware so it can only be the ones listed on the main page. Ebay is chock full of the burners you need.

    I've tried looking everywhere and haven't been able to buy a B revision of any of the drives…
    I went into several stores and one of them didn't have the rev so I gave it a shot wound up with the D now I've just bought a ASUS DRW-24B3ST and it wound up being C, I saw the c on it but I also saw Factory ID B.

    Of course once again I figured I would take my chances and also looked through every box they had for something that said B rather then C which I couldn't find.

    So anyone near the Southern California area know where I can pickup one of these drives?
