I need the following TSST OEM Firmware for a Slim Notebook Drive of an HP dv7-21xx Series: HP TS-L633N version 0300.
This is in reference to my other post at http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=47088&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=25
. I regret the bad behavior in hijacking another thread and creating a new one 2 days later but I think a clean request is a better idea for this very special request.
I cross-flashed my TS-L633N 0300 with the original Samsung SB-S083N SB02 firmware as outlined in the above mentioned thread. I had some strange write/read faults with DVD media so I thought a lens cleaning and firmware update might be appropriate. I didn't care about my warranty as I thought I am out of it for several months. After all I realized that my drive is really faulty at DVD media. Checking back with HP had shown that there still is warranty left. My fault
So I am now in the problematic position wanting to return a drive with a cross-flashed firmware...If nobody can provide such a firmware, probably anyone can provide help in editing the SN-S083N_SB02.bin?
I think making the device look like a HP again should help when they only do a quick check, without looking at any probably existing flash count
I located the device and vendor names and the OEM code in the original Samsung firmware at:
0x3296 = OBTO STTSocprC DDDV WNSS-80N3
0x332C = TSSTcorpCDDVDW SB-S083N BOOT
0x3350 = SB
0x1402E = BS20 STTSocprC DDDV WNSS-80N3
0x140C4 = TSSTcorpCDDVDW SB-S083N SB02SB
0x14124 = TSSTcorpCDDVDW SB-S083N SB02SB
0x5C000 = TSSTcorp
0x5C020 = SB-S083N
0xC803D = TSSTcorp 0001SB-S083N
0xC805F = SB 101207
0xFFFD8 = TSSTcorpCDDVDW SB-S083N SB02
0xFFFF8 = SB
0x1FFFD0 = TSSTcorpCDDVDW SB-S083N SB02
0x1FFFF0 = SB
The places for the OEM code, the firmware and the drive model name are easily discovered and changed. At least I think that's correct.
What I don't know is
- how to change the text "TSSTcorpCDDVDW" to "hp CDDVDW". Do I need to create leading or trailing spaces before or after "hp"?
- What was the release date for the original firmware (likely stored at 0xC8062 next to the OEM code)?
- How to change the mixed text at 0x3296 and 0x1402E
- If there is any CRC I need to update
I am not capable of disassembling the whole thing as I only have some basic x32 and x64 disassembling knowledge but not for those kind of processors. I don't even know which kind of processor is used in this drive...
I thought of using MediaCodeSpeedEdit (without removing RipLock/Region) after patching the bin with a hex editor as this tool might recalculate any needed CRC correctly.
