i will become tomorrow my sata-dvdrom, so i can try your way tomorrow night..
will i be able to boot my original 360 games if i flash the dvd drive with the new firmware including my key?
where should i put my unique key in the new firmware?, at the same position like fw ms25?, or is this not possible at the moment?
no ms07 does not work with orginal games. don't flash it expecting better firmware. it is a buggy beta firmware. the whole point of this thread is to get a method to dump the firmware via software to obtain your dvd key. the secondary objective is flashing the firmware back to the drive which i successfully did with while running ms07.
i think your find it is only to dump the flash not (WRITE at the moment)
if you flash your drive you may kill it
not flameing just warning
mtkflash did work when flashing my drive from ms07 to ms25. the ms25 bin i had was the dump from my orginal drive with the correct key and when it flashed back to the drive it worked correctly in my 360. So those that order replacement drives from etech4sale and get a drive with ms07 can easily make a working drive for their 360 if they have their key from their orginal dvd drive.
On another note. i have been trying the tiros method of grounding the eject pin on startup to get the drive recognized by windows.
i have tried this several times and my via sata controller always chokes on ms25 firmware no matter what i try. i was abled to get the drive recognized by my my via software in windows using this method to startup the drive and then pluging the sata cable in while windows was running. i couldn't get the drive to populate though.
I tried mtkflash win with ms07 and ms25 running on my drive and it didn't find my drive as a compatible target.
