Hi spent some time going thru the long thread and inwardly digesting much info. I have a few questions as a consequence.
My experience is with electronics and I am looking at what may be usefull with my new premium i collected last week.
Its in pieces and not yet powered on for several reasons. I am looking at dumping virgin copies of the bios, HD, and poss dvd firmware before i start using it to play anything.
I am waiting on an update for my programmer to support the hynix ram tsop but can crack on with the hd and dvdrom.
Is there much to be gained form doing this as several people have already dumped and have seen the 16 bytes different on the dvd firmware.
Do intend to take dumps of bios pre and post live update etc for records
HD may be of use at a later point, will see.
Also, in midst of checking dvdrom I can only find the GDR 3120 power pinout which im guessing is mirrored vertically for normal operation.

as correct (if so please use for wiki)
