Note:
*First and Foremost, thanks to speedracer38 for his amazing tutorial.
*This is not exactly a rip off but this is how I do it[Although it is the same as speedracer's, I have included a few steps and images which he didn't to make it easier to understand.
*So don't comment telling it's already here or it useless, etc.

General Part:





Why I Have Written This Tutorial:
1)ihas-B Series production has been stopped. They are producing newer "C" Revision Models.
2)Many people can't get an ihas-B drive in their country/it's too expensive.

What is Power-Cycling?
Power-Cycling basically means switch your drive from On>>>Off>>>On.
But you can restart your computer also[Only for this tutorial not LT+ Flashing!]

Why You Can't Use Revisions Other Than "B":
Liteon ihas-A Series - 1Mb
Liteon ihas-B Series - 2Mb
Liteon ihas-C Series - 1Mb
BurnerMAX Firmware - 2Mb

List of Re-Badged Drives[Thanks C4eva]:
The following re-badged OEM drive models are confirmed capable of being cross-flashed with the iXtreme Burner MAX firmware. Please note that the drive models marked with a * also have older versions with the "A" chipset, so be aware of this when purchasing to ensure that the version you're getting has the newer "B" chipset.

ASUS
DRW-24B3LT
DRW-24B3ST
DRW-24B1LT*
DRW-24B1ST*

Dell
PLDS DH-16ABS

HP
DVD1270i*
DVD1260i*

Lite-On
iHAS122*

Plextor
PX-L890SA

TEAC
DV-W524GSB

Note:
1)This is the list confirmed by C4eva.There might be more.
2)I'm using a ASUS 24B3ST for this tutorial.

Has to be a B Series 122.

If I crossflash the same disk drive you did(ASUS DRW-24B3ST) do I have to flash it to iXtreme Burner Max?
