    ok to sum it up i have a bad Hitachi v78 drivei got a brand new v79 to try to do a no flash drive swap

    my results

    v78 : would say reading for like 5 secs and not even spin up the disc
    v79 not flashed so it doesnt have the correct key : would spin up the disc and just say reading forever and never load the game

    when i swapped the v78 board into the v79 body it did the same thing it wouldn't spin up the disc and it would only say reading for like 5 seconds. im assuming this means the the board that is bad and not the drive???

    im downloading jungle flash now and have ordered a esata to sata cable so i can flash with my vista laptop which has a esata on the side of it

    i know i have to try to pull the key off the v78 drive what is the likely hood of that ???

    and if i can get the key what do i need to do to flash that to a v79 drive? i also read on another forum that to be able to flash a v79 you have to unlock it with a special cd ?

    Can't just use any laptop to read the key. You might have to do it on a desktop with a VIA SATA card. The CD they are referring to is the 79 Unlock CD. All it is is some little 4 or 5 second .wav file that plays that somehow magically unlocks the drive. It's the only extra step you have to do to be able to read/write to the Hitachi 79. I'm glad that most of my local competition is still too stupid to realize how simple it is. :mamoru:

    :rofl: the one friend that actually compensated me for modding his box had the v79. it's a good thing too, or i wouldn't have sprung for the cds

    well, that's not true, i've gotten a few free meals out of the rest of the people

    i have a HP pavilion with a AMD dual core and it has a ESATA on the side of it that should be able to flash it right ???

    if not i may be in trouble because both of my desktops are running Ubuntu and i dont know if you can flash drives with that ???

    I just did a 79 last weekend with JF. Shit was mad easy.

    How the hell does that unlock 79 CD work exactly anyway, like how does playing a sound file do what it does? It's freaky weird.

    Honestly, no clue. There are some laptop setups that work, I'm just not familiar with them. You may want to check 360Mods.Net or XBox-Scene to see what works. Hell, they may even have an adapter that works now for all I know.

    It's the voice of Bill Gates himself whispering "unlock my pretty" into the xbox. He put in this backdoor so he wouldn't have to pay for games himself.

    Are you sure his needs the kit?

    Only V1 needs it, not V2.

    I got this one:

    http://www.mrmodchips.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=552

    Make sure to choose the dropdown for Add LiteOn Solderless Probe: YES

    but there is this new one:

    http://www.mrmodchips.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=689
    - Noob Power Protection to prevent damage to the kit from incorrect dvd drive power lead

    I know that, I was hoping, but it does need the kit. Doesn't matter, I'm not paying for it.

    Illegal to sell them in the states. He has no choice but to wait 2 weeks. And hopefully by then, 1.61 will be out anyway.

    The CK3 kit is solderless. That's what the probe is for. :mamoru:

    I have a samsung drive and needed a VIA chipset to flash it to 1.51. Now that its flashed do I need a VIA chipset to flash it again to 1.6?
