    Picked up one of these beauties over the weekend, and have been reading all about the various unofficial and hacked firmwares here

    Now there is a comparison chart on there, highlighting the differences between the various ones, but I wanted to drop in here to ask the general consensus from actual users of the machine as to which they feel is the best.

    I assume that I can burn each to a seperate CDR and try them all out on the player?

    I should assume that re-flashing multiple times isn't going to harm the deck?

    I'm particularly interested in those that include the "black level" function since my machine running the official 2.09 firmware cannot display the drop-shadow on the THX logo for instance...

    Any thoughts?

    Go with Gufiak or Foncreator.
    Yes, use a CD-RW if you can.
    No problem with re-flashing many times.

    Both Gufiak and Foncreator has the black level setting but Foncreator
    has it under Video settings whereas Gufiak has it under Initial Settings.
    That means that you have to stop your dvd if you want to change
    it with Gufiak's. With Foncreator's, it is simpler to change.
    No biggie since you probably don't want/need to change it that often...
