pretty much just follow this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yfpf6HoMMis
and make sure your drive meets the requirements
you know
ns50 or 60 svc code on drive
2015+ build date
MT1959 Drive platform under LibreDrive Information in makemkv
stuff like that

Do we still use the `BH16NS40_EEPROM_Data_Mover.exe` to copy info from the currently installed official firmware, to the new MK firmware?

No if you had watched the video I posted above you would know that

alright, but the asus tool throws an error on my win PE, so I am left to the old tools that were recommended to be used with the data mover,
in this case im cross-flashing LG BH16 NS55 to Asus.

No, please don't do that.

Use the unlocked LG Windows flasher in that post. The flasher you're using requires .net to be installed which is why you're getting an error in WinPE but it's not the only Windows flasher. The old dosflash method is not needed.

Anyone had any luck using the custom MK firmware for incompatible drives. I have an LG BP50NB40 NB50. There is a custom firmware bin file in the directory for my drive. However, when I try to use the unlocked flasher it gets stuck at 0%. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I may have one, but it isn't regularly hooked up to anything, since it's for my laptop.

Since mine came with firmware that LibreDrive recognized, I've not had reason to dump or flash the firmware... Luck of the firmware draw, I guess... ;)

Has anybody created tools/instructions for flashing my drives while running Linux? I don't have Windows and my drives are internal so moving it to a friend's machine is not trivial.

Thanks,

OK let me try it another way, Mr. Woodstock, would you please share a copy of your drive's firmware with us?

Thank you very much!,
