Firmtool (found in iXtreme paqckages) will make the spoofed firmware for you.

Take your BenQ-OFW.bin - rename it Orig.bin

Open the folder containing your Samsung f/w from the package (say 12x)

paste the orig,bin into there, and double click the 'Make iXtreme firmware command'

Follow the on screen prompts.

The easiest way to do it is to use firmware toolbox 4.8, to do the spoofing. You can get it in the usual places. As for the flashing I usually use dosflash for sammys and benq's.

Extract the firmware from the sammy drive which will become origsamsung.bin.
Make two copies of it, because you will modify one and keep it in a safe place.

Open the original firmware(benq) in fwtb(firmware toolbox).
You will see your key for the drive.
Copy that key to the clipboard.

Open the origsamsung.bin file. (This is the original firware for the samsung).
Copy the old key from the samsung firmware file and save it somewhere. (not sure if you will need it)
Paste the key from benq orig firmware into the key textbox.

Then go to tools, spoof firmware, and spoof it as the same model (benq) and correct benq firmware. (Make sure to spoof as the correct one, look at your benq drive to find out which fw it is.)

Flash the samsung with that firmware. It will be reporting as a benq which was the original drive. It is now considered spoofed.

Hope that helps. All from memory here, have not done it in a while.



Or you can do the other one which I completely forgot about......

His is better lol...

Caster advises not to use Toolbox for spoofs invoving BenQ firmware, something to do with the console serial.

So Hitachi should be the only drive you should use firmware toolbox with regarding spoofing?

For samsungs and benq's, you should you firmtool for spoofing right.

Really only applies when you are creating benq iXtreme fw from your original benq fw. Hitachi/Samsung drives dont have an equivalent 'serial' response, so there's nothing to patch.
