I then load the bin as target in JF 1.67, shows me the key. Strange thing is, it shows me that it is a 74850 ? Is this normal ?
yes it's normal, the 93450 firmware is so similar to the 74850, and JF 1.67 shows it like this because it needs updating.
Anyway, I want to use a Samsung as test subject, so I copy the key and load the iXtreme 1.6.1 samsung as target. Spoof that to 84350 (only possible option) and put the key in it.
Test it and E66... Obviously something is wrong, but how do I spoof it as 93450c ? When I try firmtool, it tells me the original firmware has 'no valid version' and aborts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I hate venturing my original 93 drive without testing it first ?
this issue was addressed just some posts before.... first u need to insert your Key in the Samsung 1.61 firmware ( or u can use the old Samsung Xtreme5.3 fw without the stealth checks and can boot all future games in case of wave5 discs,but remember it's not safe for Xbox Live and even 1.61 is not that safe too, I'm currently going for Xtreme5.3C ) then you save the fw with key inserted.
Now the spoofing to the new 93450 drive must be done manually with a hex-editor, u must find the spoof strings location in the fw and that can be done by comparing different spoofed versions of the same fw, or you can wait for new tools to be updated and released.
Spoofing to model 84350 while your drive is 93450 will get you the E66 error for sure.
