    My offer was for a firmware binary to be used in conjunction with a drive's own extracted "dump" file containing the calibration data and other values unique to the device. I'm assuming that if you're looking for firmware you're clear on how a drive is flashed. I am happy to flash drives for people if needed.

    and that "dumping" of one's firmware is beyond the skill level of some. So i'd err on the safe side if the drive doesn't have 3.02. If it has, return it & get a new one and hope that one's "fine" :)

    Exactly! My point was I can supply a "fine" unit to anyone who needs it, or if you're in the process of flashing and not sure you're on the right path I can help make sure you are in order to avoid turning your drive into a brick. :)

    I went to 3.02, because the drive was burning BD only with 4x speed instead of 8x, as indicated. I'm also able to rip UHD disks with 3.02. Speed is better in 3.02 compared to 3.00.

    Gogosch did you notice any difference in speed between the 3.01 and 3.02? I've done a lot of speed tests using two copies of the same 4K UHD blu ray and the speeds have been identical so I've stuck with 3.01. Always curious to see what other's experiences have been.

    No he doesn't, because you can't rip UHD's with 3.02. that version revoked the friendlyness

    Seems there are a couple different versions floating around, the friendly 3.02 and the unfriendly 3.02. I have the friendly 3.02 as it''s the only version that can be crossflashed onto the LG WH16NS60 "Official" Ultra HD Blu Ray player to make that device UHD friendly.

    Just to let everyone know I purchased The ASUS BW-16D1HT From Alex it came in two days USA it works perfectly brand new and very reasonable price and I am very Happy I have two other UHD friendly drives both

    LG WH16NS40 V1.02 UHD Friendly drives which only read 4K movies @4X the Asus reads @8X much faster is why I bought it from him.
