Nothing is wrong with using the ASUS flasher but why would you want to spread misinformation??? There are people who've had issues with the ASUS flasher and if they're under the BS impression that "oh, I have to use this cause 'protection'" then they're not going to get the solution they need. The flasher has nothing to do with it. At all. As for can I point you to the discussion? No, it's been discussed many times on MakeMKV's forum. What do you think the MK firmware DOES? And why do you think the MK firmware is REQUIRED to downgrade these drives? If the ASUS flasher magically removed the protection, why would I need an MK firmware in the first place? See where the logic there falls apart? Mike put a lot of work into modifying these firmware versions to allow downgrade and cross flashing. But that has nothing to do with the tool. Again, it's the misinformation that irritates me because people are taking that as gospel, running into problems with the ASUS flasher, and not trying the LG flasher that would work for them, because this of this nonsense.
