Preferred Solution: how do i downgrade my firmware?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have several HP DeskJet 460s with various firmware revisions. For some reason, *only* the oldest firmware will print correctly when paired with a Treo 700wx via Bluetooth. Any of the new revisions print gibberish.

Would love to know if someone has one of the older (UF1P435A) revisions around?

HP says they only have the latest version available & can't offer the old one.

Im not sure if this is against the rules or something, bc i dont see any other threads on it, which surprises me.

But is there anyway to do this? My sister has an iTouch v4.3.3 and i wanna see if i can downgrade it to v2 bc i wanna use winamp to transfer files and it doesnt support the later versions. and from what i read there isnt anything that does w/o already having iTunes on the computer. and well, F*** iTunes!

Ive found plenty of sites about it but most of em dont seem all that trustworthy, and since i dont really have anything to do with iFads i dont know what the reliable sources are, and i trust my fellow geek soldiers.

We like winamp, been using it forever, and shes doesnt really use her touch for anything but music so she doesnt need it to be compatible with new apps.
 

Answer:downgrade iTouch firmware???

Is it possible to get old firmware (ver 1.50) or newer one for the drive DVRTD08A?

Unfortunately I flashed this drive with wrong firmware ver 1.54 for DVRTD08L with label flash function.

Answer:Satellite Pro A300D: Can I get old DVD drive firmware for downgrade

Hi

Unfortunately, you can download only the firmware updates which are available on the Toshiba European driver page.
If your favorite firmware update is available then you would be able to downgrade it.
If there is no firmware then you cannot change it :(

> Will this firmware affect drive functionality?
This is not easy to say? in many cases you can still use the CD/DVD drive and will not notice any changes but sometimes such wrong firmware can damage the drive and can make it unusable.

Answer:Satellite A300D-158 DVD drive firmware downgrade

Hi!

I?m not sure if the wrong firmware affects the drive functionality but in your case I would test it. Try to read different CD?s/DVD?s and create your own CD?s/DVD?s.
Then you will see if your drive is faulty or not but I think a wrong firmware will improve the functionality.

It?s not known to me to get an older firmware. For this you must go to an local ASP and ask an technician for help.

Bye

Hello,I have W520 .Last week , I auto update  Battery Firmware in "System update" , but now it's not work . I config it  start charging on below 46% and stop charging at 50% On my last FW it's work , I can see battery up 50% and down 46% , again and again . But now , i can't see it , my battery only stand on 49% , no down and no up . Sorry for my bad englishPlease help me !!  













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:[W520] How I know Battery Firmware version and downgrade

If you attach the AC adapter when the battery is at 49%, then it will not charge because it is not below 46%. This is the intended behavior.If the system is charging and discharging between 46% and 50% while plugged in, then this causes extra wear to the battery.

Answer:Replacing router Firmware w/ third party Firmware?

nope its easy, and as long as your smart and follow the few basic guildlines very unlikely chance of damaging the router. Biggest suggestion is never do the update via wireless as if you loss signal or what not could loose a bit of data for the router update.

Need some advice:

I currently have TWC wideband service 30 Mb down / 5 Mb up. After dealing with the pros and cons of it, I'm trying to decide whether to keep it or downgrade to 20 Mb down / 2 Mb up.

Wideband(30/5)
Pros - Faster downloads and finally a decent upload (movie downloads)
Cons - Force to use two modems(wideband,voip), lousy built in Wifi, increase electric bill, no improvement in gaming

Downgrade(20/2)
Pros - One modem, can use my own router, still a decent download, lower electric bill, better wifi
Cons - Slower upload, even worst gaming performace (MP)

Extra info - Original connection was 3Mbs to 15Mb download / .49 upload (only thing that remain constant)
 

Answer:To Downgrade Or Not To Downgrade (That is the question)

I've got the 30/5 plan and really enjoy the 5Mb/s upload speed. Especially when uploading photos and videos. It's a big help with that sort of stuff, which we do a lot of actually.

I'd say it depends on what you actually use it for. We're heavy on Netflix, Hulu, Vimeo, YouTube, etc. Not to mention gaming with Mineraft, BF3 and other FPS stuff currently.

However we pay $55/mo for internet only. We don't have a home phone and cable TV is useless to us. I'm guessing you have the home VoIP + TV with the cable? If I need a home phone, I'll get something VoIP that does not require a special modem; rather a standalone device or an app that goes on my computer, tablet or phone over WiFi. Though I was tired of pouring about $130/mo on that crap. Almost a grand a year kept in my pocket for other crap I also probably don't need.

Hi,I recently bought my first CD burner. It's a Sony Spessa USB Plus CRX100E/X2 drive. I found out that it can't quite burn an entire 80 min/700MB disk, but that there is supposedly a firmware update that fixes it. I downloaded a firmware update program from Sony's website (found here), and flashed the drive with the default firmware file (CDRW0008.BIN), but it didn't seem to do anything except change the driver to an EEPROM driver. I switched back to the original driver, and it was as if I had never done anything...The firmware program came with another BIN file, ZERO.BIN, so I tried flashing that. I guess that was a mistake, because now the drive doesn't work at all - it's recognized as a "non-specific QT processor with JG". I tried changing the driver back to the original again, but this time Windows won't use it. It just says that there are no compatible drivers for the device. I tried to flash the firmware with the program from Sony again, but now it doesn't recognize the drive as being compatible, so it won't flash it.I was hoping to get some support from Sony, but they informed me that I would have to pay more than I paid for the drive in the first place to get support. So, I hope someone here might have an idea of how I can fix it.

Answer:Is there any way to fix this firmware?

That is why the smarter people here do NOT recommend firmware or BIOS updates lightly. You can end up with a doorstop and no recourse. If the product is still under warranty and doesn't do what is advertised, take it back for a return or replacement with something that does.

I went on to the Nero site which states they will not accept responsibility for any firmware updates.

Question: Firmware for an AP

I have a couple of DLink 900AP's. One has the standard DLink firmware but the other has some specialist firmware for use with a commercial WiFi network.Does anyone know if it's possible to download the non-standard DLink firmware from the 900AP - so I can flash it to my other 900AP?

Answer:Firmware for an AP

No; I think you'd have to find it on the net. Search for whatever info you have even just its revision number. You can usually make backups of router/AP configurations, of course, but although the firwmare is sometimes saved along with it, it may not accept being ported across and you'd lose the other AP's settings in so doing.

Firmware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia






Quote:
In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic devices. Typical examples of devices containing firmware range from end-user products such as remote controls or calculators, through computer parts and devices like hard disks, keyboards, TFT screens or memory cards, all the way to scientific instrumentation and industrial robotics. Also more complex consumer devices, such as mobile phones, digital cameras, synthesizers, etc., contain firmware to enable the device's basic operation as well as implementing higher-level functions.

What DVD's won't it run-commercial (retail) movies, or discs you are attempting to burn ? If the latter, what brand of discs.

Question: Firmware

I recently purchased an nVIDIA 6200AGP8x 350MHz Graphics Card with 512MB For an eight year old Dell Dimension 4600i (P4, 3G HT with a 128 card). As I didn?t think I was getting the full benefit of the new card I checked in BIOS. The maximum it goes to is 256 so I looked the Dell site and saw there were 4 updates, one being video, ok so I downloaded it, and then stopped. I have had a bad experience with firmware (a Plextor drive that refused to work after an update) as a result I am not sure whether to go ahead or not. Ok pathetic but please humour me, do the risks out way the benefits.
Oh, re. the HP on this PC, I noticed it is disabled in BIOS sorry better for a new thread perhaps.
Dave

Answer:Firmware

Now lets see if I understand. You have replaced the the original graphics card with a nVIDIA 6200AGP8x 350MHz Graphics Card.
From the Dell web site it only shows one update for the Bios but it does not state what it was for so should not be used.
Although it does have several driver updates for graphics cards these are not for the new card you have installed and should not be used. Go to the nVidia web site for new updated drivers.
From my memory the bios does not indicate how much memory the graphics card uses. I could be wrong.

I have a SpeedTouch 530 modem router and have just downloaded new firmware (version 4.2.5, as it happens). It is a .bin file. Stupid question: what do I do now? Is there a Windows file I should be pasting it into? Am I supposed to open it? - but when clicked the file doesn't open because there is no program available to do it. There is no guidance in the manual. Ideas welcome.

Question: Linksys Firmware

Hey All,

I have a linksys WRT54G router and was wondering what your thoughts were on firmware that could keep all the normal functionality of the Linksys firmware and all the possibility of assigning public ip's to different ports.

DSL Extreme gives me 5 ips and currently I connect to the DSL Extreme service through the Static IP option on my router, but I would like to have each computer in my home connect from a different IP so they can each server different purposes. I prefer one of the free firmwares, but if a paid one is that much better, than why not.

TIA
 

Answer:Linksys Firmware

The router isn't going to assign public IP addresses to your machines. The only way to do that would be to connect each machine to the Internet directly, obviously not the best choice.

Alternatively you could connect your Internet connection to a LAN port on the router and just use it as a switch, but that would be the same as hooking each PC to the Internet directly.

To do 1 to 1 NAT, what you want to do I assume, requires a router with a bit more intelligence, like a Cisco 800 series.

Question: WRT54G Firmware

Hey guys.
After some thinking on the matter, I've come to the decision that I'll at least TRY to keep my wrt54g and get it working. However, I've heard a bunch of talk about using aftermarket firmware. I was wondering what one you guys would recommend. I've seen stuff about both Sveasoft firmwares, as well as several others. I'm in the dark as to what to go with.

Any advice?
-Ghent
 

Answer:WRT54G Firmware

Sveasoft - if you want a lot of features and a fruity GUI
OpenWRT - if you want even more feature but a command line interface (unix users tend to like this one)
HyperWRT - if you only want increased TX power over the stock firmware
DD-WRT - if you like the Sveasoft firmware but think the guy that runs the company is an ass (he is)

Also, if you have a version 4 unit, you're pretty much stuck with openwrt.

I ran Win 8 Upgrade assistant, it said that "Secure Boot isn't compatible with your PC", -your PC's firmware doesn't support Secure Boot so you wont be able to use it in Win 8.

Is Secure Boot in 8 like Safe Mode in XP?

My PC info is up to date in the drop down on the left.

Upon upgrading I will be installing a Gigabyte GPU, Nvidia Geforce GT630, which is compatible with Win 8.

A new power supply will be upgraded also, Thermaltake TR2 430W

Answer:Win 8.1 firmware issue

Have a read through this article....

Secure Boot Overview

As far as your hardware...are you installing 2 GPU's? You say you're installing a Gigabyte GPU and a Nvidia.....so which is it? I would start with a minimum of a 500 watt PSU.

There are PSU calculators that will give you an idea of the size PSU you'll need based on the hardware you're installing.

Question: firmware updates?

I HAVE A MEDION TITANIUM WITH A 2X DVD WRITER, I HAVE BEEN LOOKING ON THE WEB FOR BLANK DVD'S FOR THIS AND MOST SITES SELL ONLY 4X AND AVISE PEOPLE WITH 2X WRITERS TO CHECK FOR FIRMWARE UPDATES. WHAT ARE FIRMWARE UPDATES AND IF I FIND ONE FOR MY PC, WILL IT UPDATE IT TO A 4X WRITTER? ANY HELP WOULD BE WELCOME.

Answer:firmware updates?

DVDROMs have a controller in much the same way as a Hard drive or a CD-RW. This controller is run by the firmware (a programme or data stored in non-volatile Memory such as EEPROM). Updating the firmaware is done for various reasons. The DVDROM may not be able to read/write 4X DVDRs properly without an upgrade. It's unlikely (though not impossible) that you'll get 4X speed from a firmware update.A firmware update, if available, will be specifically for your DVDROM and you will have to visit the manufacturer's site to find it.BTW Please don't write in capitals, it's the same as shouting at people.

Question: Firmware flashing

I have an external firewire dvd writer that I wanted to flash upgrade,unfortunately the fashing program only works over an IDE interface.Short of removing the drive from the case and connecting the drive to an IDE channel (which would invalidate the warantee)is there any way of flashing over a firewire connection?

Answer:Firmware flashing

Ask yourself three questions......a) will flashing the firmware make any noticeable difference, b) will it cure any problems that I am having, c) do I really need to and will it make my life better.If you answer no to any one then forget it. If it will make a difference save the exe file to the ext HD and run the flash update, it will automatically find the writer as it should do if you run it from the HD. I would turn off your AV assuming that the file is from a reputable source.G

Hey, recently Ive had trouble burning DVDs using Samsung TS-H552U, so after reading around I went to update my firmware using their automatic flash download. I downloaded the latest version, which lifted me from US03 to US07. It installs and asks me to restart. I restart, and when it boots back up, my DVD drive is no longer recognized. I have no idea what to do. For firmware to update using their program, it needs to find the drive, and since it isnt showing up, I cant do that. Any ideas?

When I click on the 5224P to get the firmware, nothing happens. My Browser acts like its is loading the page for about 10 minutes, then it tells me the page can not be displayed.

Anyone else have problems like this with BenQ?

Question: Dlink Firmware.

I tired a search before but wasn't getting the right stuff. Same with google. Perhaps I am just being daft, but anywho, to the question at hand.

Do DLink Routers have 3rd Firmware like Many Linksys Routers have? If so, could someone please point me in the general direction? Thanks. Google, is not an acceptable answer The initial firmware that comes with it simply baffles me.

Thanks again
 

Answer:Dlink Firmware.

It depends on the router, and mainly what OS it's running. For example, there is custom firware for the DSL-G604 because it's running MontaVista linux to support the TI AR7 dsl chipset, but other Dlink routers may run other types of embedded OS which don't easily support 3rd party firmware design.

Likewise, the Linksys WRT54G and its variants are running a linux based OS, but other products such as the BEFSR41, while somewhat similar in hardware architecture, don't run the same OS which isn't as flexible to 3rd party modifications.

So it really depends what OS the product is running as to the easy of developing and installing custom firmware.

Question: Firmware GOOF

I'm using another computer that has this error: It's Windows 7.
I went to download a firmware from a site, but when it came time to Open and Save, it read that Windows can't open the firmware and that it first needs a program. The choices are: use Web Service to select for me, or, select a program from a list of installed programs (there were 14 listed). I think I chose Word, but realized right away that was a mistake as it immediately showed a page lists of letters and numbers, like incription. The problem is it won't let me delete or return to start over at the choices again on this computer. Once I get back to the site and click to open the same firmware download, the same page of letters and numbers pops up. I'm on my computer writing to you (also Windows 7) so I am able to stop just short of making the same mistake twice. Question: how do I erase or delete the word program that I put the firmware in? Is there a way to override it?
What should I have used in the list of choices to add this firmware? By the way, the site has instructions on how to install this firmware for Windows 7, but I did not find it until I had already done the damage.
Any help is very appreciated.

Answer:Qosmio F10 - need DVD firmware

Hi

Firstly the whole Toshiba drivers you will find on the Toshiba website.
But I don?t think that you will find a firmware for this drive because the drive uses the original Microsoft OS drivers.
Furthermore it?s not possible to change the region settings more than 5 times. If you have already changed the region 5 times the last setting is fixed and it?s not possible to change it.

Question: TP-Link Firmware

After reading the thread by simonsiknasty about slower internet connection, I decided to upgrade the firmware on my TP-Link WR641G Router. I currently have v3 of the firmware and v4 was available on the official Site.

However, after several attempts I have been unsuccessful in upgrading it.
Here is the upgrade screen...

I click on the BROWSE button, select the latest firmware (wr641gv4-en-up.bin) and OKAY. It looks like it's trying to do something, but nothing ever happens! Tried this in both Firefox and IE8. In IE8 the progress bar moves slowly across to about a third of the way then stops.

My old router was a TP-Link. What a stupid choice I had made.
Well, this thing looks like it has the same firmware as my old router, only difference is I had no 11G, whatever that is. I updated its firmware only once. I didn't have this issue though... Try disabling any forwarded ports and turning off the wireless before the install. During the update does the router reset itself? Do the lights blink or anything? Does it show any indication of loading, processing etc. ?

How safe is it to upgrade Firmware on my dvd writer (Phillips DVD+-RW DVD8631 version CD21 )?If something goes wrong,can I restore to the previous version of the Firmware?Is there a new version of Firmware available for the above dvd writer?thanks.

Answer:Firmware Upgrades

Unless you absolutely need to update firmware leave your rewriter as it is - you only need one small error and the drive will almost certainly be only fit for the dustbin.However, if you still wish to go ahead, the Philips DVDRW8631 is apparently the same drive as the Benq DW1620.See:click here (see note 5-1-6).Also see:"First the Philips (unzipped) version Gd30( click here ); if this doesn?t work, try the BenQ version B7W9 (unzipped) version ( click here )The general opinion on other forums is that it's not a particularly good rewriter.But a new one, if it all goes wrong, will be less than £20 for one of the latest top brand DVD rewriters from Scan, Dabs etc.
