FreeKey for Liteon 83850c released!
Geremia and max have released a free app to decrypt the key from a 83850c dump made using LO83info.
So what we have here is an app that will give you the working key for free! (not $42 from foundmy)
Nice work from both of them, thanks

Here is all what you need to mod a LiteOn 83850c
first unrar this package
1) install PortIO32.exe if running vista you may have to do this manually see the 83850c\manual_install\readme.txt
2) Connect your Liteon 83850c drive to your PC via SATA
3) Run Lo83info_32.exe (sata port) and follow the prompts
4) A file will be saved with a drive unique name as a .bin
5) Use the cmd FreeKey.exe nameoffileumadewithLo83.bin by Germia & Maximus to decrypt the output.bin and get your drives key :D
6) open XtractorReader.exe, let it find your 83850c drive and make sure the tray is in half way mode.
THIS MODIFIED VERSION WILL ALLOW YOU TO GET YOUR INQUIRY, IDENTIFY, ETC FILES FROM YOUR LITEON 83850C,
JUST CONNECT THE L83850C AND DO A “GET KEY AND FILES”,
DO NOT USE THE SPEAR OR USBXTRACTOR ON THE 83850c IT WILL DAMAGE THE DRIVE & YOUR Xtractor / PC
AFTER A FEW SECCONDS YOU WILL GET A MSG SAYING “THINGS TO TRY…”
THAT MEANS IT CANNOT READ THE KEY AND OF COURSE IT CANT.
BUT AFTER THAT MSG CLICK OK AND WILL ASK IF YOU WANT TO GET THE OTHER FILES THAT COULD HELP YOU IN CASE YOU HAVE YOUR KEY THERE
7) Once you get the files and SAVE them
8) Open JF 1.65b
9) Select TARGET source and get the ix16-lite838 file
10) click on manual spoof, type your keys in there and load the inquiry.bin file
11) then follow standard write instructions from there for older liteon drives
ENJOY! HAPPY MODDING :)
