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 on the dedicated iHAS & cross-flashable list page for examples of some of the different revisions’ drive label stickers and box labels.
