A group dedicated to understanding and analysing the firmware installed on DVD players based on the MediaTek MT1369, MT1379 or MT1389 processor.


MTK ReMaker
A program what is made for changing MTK Firmware parts.. as MPEG Backgrounds and Graphic images and Fonts.. There is also viewing capabilities for those..

ReMaker is capable to replace Remote controller and Front panel Button tables. So it will be possible to get some other players firmware to work with your players remote controller and front panel buttons..

It will also find VFD Display table from many firmwares.. Patching this table with right VFD Chr codes will bring blanc or corrupted display back to life..

A word of warning though, it is possible to kill a player if you don't know what you are doing (not covered under warranty either) for some people this is not an issue but needs to be mentioned anyway. Using an incorrect firmware can result in a partialy operational player which won't allow a reflash due to the drive not functioning.

There are similar user groups devoted to ESS chipsets also.

Have a look at the yahoo groups, I think there is a group there from memory, have a look for OFFA (one firmware for all) as a starting point.

ESS Yahoo Groups,
One Firmware for All - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OneFirmwareForAll/?yguid=170600805
Also do a search on One Firmware for All, I don't think it is as active as the Mediatek ones anymore, but I haven't looked in there for a while, as I don't have an ESS machine at the moment.
