Reflash A Benq
Posted 10 April 2008 - 01:48 AM
I am wondering how to reflash a benq to a slower speed using iprep. i can successfully use command fben in iprep i just cant seem to get the files straight in my mind. i have the backup folder and the original firmware i just need help setting up the directories and what i should create in iprep. i get the concept of reflashing a hitachi, but if anyone could just explain the process of a BenQ and using the proper .bin files and where to put the folders. Thank You so much, i just cant seem to get the concept.

Once this is done, delete the BenQ-CFW - make sure its the CFW
Locate the 8x firmware in the BenQ package, copy this into /backups/1234567/12345/ and rename it BenQ-CFW
Open up BenQ-OFW off of your bootable device, copy the drive key.
Then open up your new BenQ-CFW thats in the same folder (backups/serial/serial)
Paste the new drive key
Click Replace Key
Boot from USB with 360 connected
fben <serial> <serial>
This will flash the BenQ-CFW you manipulated with the key.

also when you say open BenQ-OFW off bootable and take the drive key. you can do this in firmware toolbox, correct?

It copies it from CFW into the folder created using whatever serial you put in, then injects the unique key into it to create xxx-CFW.bin
I meant - do it in F/W toolbox

iPrep puts BenQ and/or Samsung hacked firmware in CFW, you need it in there for firmtool to create the hacked firmware in the backups/1234567/12345/ folder with the drive specific key.
It will error out if the file(s) are not in CFW

My chosen method is to open up the file you want in toolbox, paste key from CFW.bin (in backups NOT CFW folder
Move this to /backups/1234567/12345/ and rename it BenQ-CFW.bin or SAM-CFW.bin accordingly
Then you can use fben/fsam 1234567 12345 to flash
Although you can use the make firmware command in Windows or the rben/rsam command and re'prep iprep with slower firmware and start from sctratc with dxxx command.

I have since explained why you want the ixtreme file in CFW (although thats generally for virgin flashing, this isnt virgin)

BUT on a side note my BenQ makes a ticking noise when its loading a disc and reading it thought game play. it is noticeably loud for a lazer. does anyone else experience this? also my drive is 12X and this is the reason i want to do to 8X. but does this make the same sound for people with 12x?

Try 8x if you wish.
As long as you keep a good valid dump of your BenQ-OFWwhich has they key in it, you can expereiment with different speeds.
