I've been working on this lite on for a week now. I had an erase then it wouldn't flash. Froze on erasing when I picked the write option. I used your step 13 and it worked first try. I registered just to say thanks. I've been reading for awhile now and your post helped. Thanks for the help.
i'd say you registered here too just to show, how inexperienced you are with modding.
if it takes over a week, and you can't get it to write.. but you can get it to write with some uberrandom step from some forum,
then all that week you were doing something you couldn't wrap your head around. - where it is so easy due all the guides and such...
i'd say you're lucky that you didn't burn it if it takes you a week to finally write a lite-on..
