Hi guys, I went and flashed my Pioneer A05 with this rpc firmware 1.33 version: http://gradius.rpc1.org/ Which "removes" the 2x rip lock that the stock drive has. It did indeed work, I can load up dvd shrink and rip away from 6-10x and it is lovely, the problem is in DVD decrypter, the speed is still limited to 1.8x-2.4x and never really goes above that. Anyone have this problem? Or is there another de-facto firmware flash I should be using to allow my nice shiny burner to rip at speeds equal with a crappy 50 dolla LG DVD reader? Thanks in advance for any replies.
