im more inclined to agree with Gazcoigne, this does give a false sense of security, i have seen 1 box recently that had your tool used and it still bricked it.
as for customers side of things, i dont know about Gazcoigne, but my customers are people who want the homebrew hack, but are incapable of doing the soldering and dumping correctly without f****** things up. Does it sound unfair to you that i am charging so people arent lifting traces and test points, baring in mind look around at how many posts are on this forum alone with topics like, "help me... just f***** DB1F1"
while i can see your morals about this, there are reasons that we do this, i dont know about you but im not going to *give* my time away
my point exactly, not every1 is confident enough to do the mod, and a lot wont take the chance.
whats the problem in charging for that? im charging for the time spent soldering, desoldering and flashing etc same as i would if they wanted 12V mod or custom lighting etc you think im gonna find the 1st person who installed an LED in a console and pay them royalties? wise up.
again what if your dumps spit out the same garbage at the same point? is it good data? dont think so. your logic is not sound.
i reiterate my point that if you dont get 100% matching dumps you should not proceed, and trying to reconstruct a good nand from a pile of dung is pointless and really is skating on thin ice, it may work for you once or twice but sooner or later your gonna end up with a f***ed up xbox
and are you then going to be held responsible for that? love to see you firing out replacement xboxes coz ur tool made some1 think they could proceed with a bad setup.
and the point i made about not continuing if you aint got matching dumps has been said by more respected members of this community than you. Its even on free60 page ffs.
theres no need to be so defensive you can get critisism as well as praise here you know.
personally i will never ever use your app nice as the theory behind it is because im not prepared to take the risk, with my own or any1 elses xbox and i would also urge any1 reading this to look at their setup before they assume your app will be their saviour.
