Work has began and is under construction by olofolleola4.

The reason (as of 2020-Mar-15) why LG/Asus BD ODDs needs to be flashed into Asus BW-16D1HT 3.02 (DE - Downgrade Enable) (most probably ODDs using PCB: JB8 2015.05.08 (Reference Image)) is because that firmware supports Lead-in and the OpCode 0xf1[1][2] (normally used by Plextors to read the EEPROM, but in the case with Asus BW-16D1HT 3.02, it reads the cache) to read 1 sector[3] of Lead-out through cache.

Requirements:

Some notes before you begin:

  • After each file have been sucessfully flashed, it's a good idea to power cycle the ODD, either by disconnecting the SATA Power cable (wait at least 15 seconds before reconnecting) or by restarting the computer.
  • Specific instruction for GNU/Linux(-libre):

sudo wine ASUS_ODD_FW_Changer_-_FIRMWARE.exe

The following text is WIP (Work-in-Progress), needs confirmation:

A BD-ROM/DVD Rewriter cannot be cross-flashed to a Blu-ray Disc Rewriter or / UHD Blu-ray / DVD Writer with the ASUS Flash Tool, it needs to be flashed through DOS Flash
