Based on Herrie's 1.0C TEST with BronKowTech45's bitsetting hack

All this are RPC2 Autoreset and Ripspeed patched.

Variant 0 has removed only the DVD-R/RW lock (I have readded this because some users have reported better results without the calibration patch.)
The DVD-R calibration problem still persist. I suggest to not use the hacked firmware for writing to DVD-R. If you have access to a real ND1300A send me a mail because i collect some data of the calibration.


I have made some testburns with my ND1100A Servo 7. I can not say if it works at your drive! You be warned that this could destroy discs and drive. Check this thread.
