How to know if my firmware is encrypted

Post by Korvenwin »

I've just bought an Archon MD-8107U3YC.

In my case the drive information is:

Manufacturer: HL-DT-ST
Product: BD-RE BU40N
Revision: 1.02
Firmware date: 2120-12-01 17:16
Bus encryption flags: 1F

LibreDrive Information
Status: Possible, not yet enabled
Drive platform: MT1959

How can I know if it is an encrypted firmware to flash with the right method?

It's encrypted
Anything in 2020 is
LG pulled an Asus 3.02 reuse old firmware name but now encrypted

Thank you very much Billycar11. That was why the Marty's SDFtool didn't work. It detects my unit as not encrypted and in fact it does.

One last question:

After reading a few post about v1.03MK vs v1.0DE, I'm not sure witch firmware to choose. I don't think I will use DVDFab.

Which one do you recommend me?

If you have SDFtool Flasher v1.3.1 and the encypted firmware detection is incorrect, simply click on the ✔ or ✖ to toggle it.
Cheers :D
