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.

Lite-On iHAS Models

iHAS124B (Baseline model)
iHAS224B (Baseline model + LightScribe)
iHAS324B (Baseline model + SmartErase)
iHAS424B (Baseline model + LightScribe + SmartErase [equivalent to 224 + SmartErase])
iHAS524B (Baseline model + LabelTag + SmartErase)
iHAS624B (Baseline model + LabelTag + LightScribe + SmartErase [equivalent to 524 + LightScribe])

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)

    I found "ASUS DRW24B5ST BLK B" in shop, and I wonder is it cross-flashable, I've seen it in some other lists of cross-fashable drives but not on yours. Can you tell me if its CF, since I couldn't find any info on this drive.

    Hi everybody, I want to share my experience for all of you that want to burn full XGD3 iso with the new model iHAS124D. Indeed, it's no longer possible to buy a "B" model now.

    So with the "D" model
    1-Flash the drive to the latest 8L0A firmware (
    2-Download EEPROM utility 6.2.0
    3-Download Burnermax playload tool 0.15
    4-Download and install Imgburn
    5-Download ABGX 1.0.6

    - Ok after flashing the drive, open EEPROM Utility and go to "Option" tab. Activate smartburn, Force HT and On line HT. Let Over speed disable. You can close EEPROM Utility
    - With ABGX patch the iso with level 3 under "autofix" tab
    - Launch Burnermax playload tool. Check "auto" and put a média (I use the cheapest one for the moment, the DVD+DL "MIBPG101-R10-65"). Burnermax shows now "enabled" if not click on Burnermax button again.
    - Launch Imgburn and click on "write image file to disk"
    Go to "tools/settings/build/page2" put the buffer size to 512.
    Go to "tools/settings/write". Perform opc = off, Enable burn proof = on, layer break = calculate optimal
    Click OK to close
    Be sure to have the right writer selected il you have several. Check "verify". load the .dvd on the source tab.
    Chose 4x write speed
    -click on the small drive options button in the lower right corner (the gear checked). Under lite-on tab verify that all options are correctly configured (like you did with EEPROM utility) and do an clear OPC history. OK to close.
    - All done, last thing before writing, verify that the value free space = 8 738 897 920 bytes, if it's not, click on "mode/read" and then "mode/write" to update.

    You can click on write and wait, the burning is 100% and verify 100%. You can verify it again under ABGX if you want but it is fully stealth.
