While that's true....well, it's a hard situation. I've always known the scene to be open and sharing. But with the ability to patch/fix on the fly, it's hard to make that call so easily now. I remember back then when Linus was going on about how closed-source stuff kills innovation, but at the same time, being closed like that prevents the wrong people from knowing. It's a catch-22.

Who cares?

L T 3.0 was completed for BENQ eight days ago.

An others got tested during last week.

So why no update on a release time frame?

I bet he's waiting for x-mas.

I'm scratching my head here...

Why would you be able to get a good dump? It's a new drive!

I mean if it's a new drive, it's likely to need new method to dunmp firmware. So naturally it's not unexpected that you couldn't dump it.

He's from Australia if not mistaken so I wonder if he meant the 24th in AU or US?

I guess it's possible to have it made available in both...

No

I also have this drive.

Is the solution to replace it with a hacked drive? Can you recommend a model number that I should purchase to do this?

Thanks,
Dave
