C407 is a capacitor and yes it will blow if its shorted sad.gif


hm...
Can i test if it's broken? with my volt meter or something?
and the strange thing is, the first time I turn on my xbox the little green light flashes and it wont boot, then off and on again.. no problem.

How can this be, I mean.. if something is really broken it shouldn't work at all.?

also a problem is that the capicitor is 75% under the Epoxy :s...

any site or way to order spare parts..?
or should it sent this ting to sony back?

the weird thing was my Xbox did sometimes boot and sometimes not...
so it couldn't be really broken.

I desolderd the mess today and redid everything as neat as i could.
although I don't have the best tools... lack of shops here...

Anyway repaired the sh*t, and it looks like it's working again.. love.gif


but...
but..
but..


stil not able to read my orig firmware...

:'(

I think i'm going to buy a sapperated SATA controller..
but haven't found out which one is going to work definately....

still no succes...
been at my neighbour with another motherboard (gigabyte) but also the nforce4 chipset....

I experienced the same problem as before at my own pc.

MTKFLASH recognises my SATA controller..
but it just freezes, and after pressing Escape it gives me the Status = 51 must be 70...

I think i'm going to wait for a 100% workaround..

this begins to s*ck..

Hi guys,

I was following this topic for a while trying to figure out the MS28 read/flash. I didn't succeed at all.
But now I found a great solution which works flawlessly for me. It's from sTix at xboxhacker.

---
I finally got my MS28 to read and write firmware WITHOUT doing the VCC trick. (Thanks go to Textbook and Rodpad @ Xbox-Scene for helping me out). Here's what I did:

Turn off the Xbox 360 and PC.
Connect the SATA cable from the MS28 drive to the PC, and also use croc clips to be safe.
Leave a PC CD or DVD drive on one of the IDE channels
Turn on the PC and boot from floppy , but leave the 360 off.
When you get to command prompt, turn 360 on.
Type this command: mtkflash r /m /sata orig.bin and hit enter
It should display your ports. Do NOT select anything, just leave it at the "menu"
Turn off your 360.
Now, select the port the 360 was connected to, even though the 360 is now off.
It will "pause" when you select that port
I counted to ten, then turned on the 360
It started reading automatically
---

Thank you sTix! biggrin.gif

I can't get it done by that trick...


my dvd:
MS28
ver A
May 2006


Is this the same drive as you guys did the trick with?


if your drive is a MS28 produced in May 2006 please answer:
some questions:
was there A cd/dvd in your Xbox360 drive?
did you have other IDE dvd players or so connected in your pc?
What type of Sata did you use, onboard, pci, type etc

Jackel, we've already stated the bad flash trick for MS28 drives only works with VIA chipsets. If you don't have a VIA chipset, I wouldn't waste any more time trying it more than once.

If you have a VIA chipset: get a hexedited MTKFlash for your chipset and follow the bad flash procedure posted above.

If you don't have a VIA chipset: you will have to do the VCC switch.

I saw it nowhere stated....
i have read A lot of different info
different statemenst to type like:

mtkflash /r back.bin
mtkflash /r /m back.bin
mtkflash /r /m /sata back.bin

but I will see if I can order a PCI sata controller with VIA :-)

i'm glad you tell me that that is the only option....
think there are more people trying over and over and over...

What sata card do you guys advice for my MS28 may 2006?

regards

Glad you got it working. Your experience while quite bad, still dont measure up to what I had to do tongue.gif
Now the hard part is backing up games (wxripper style) :|

Worked well once I took both my Pioneer DVD-RW drives off the IDE cable and put a OLD 54x Ultima CHM-54 CD-ROM as a slave device. (This being the only other device connected, other than the MS28 360 drive)

Other hardware, Asus P5GDC-V Deluxe, Intel ICH6 SATA onboard.
Software used: X360SAM0.2_MS2

Steps taken:
Do soldering, Leave PCB out of DVD. DO NOT CONNECT WIRES
Connect everything up. (SATA to SATA1 MASTER, POWER to 360)
Turn PC only on.
at CMD prompt, turn 360 on, wait till lights cycle on 360.
run the "SAMREAD XXXXXXX XXXXX" command.
now connect wires, and quickly select the right SATA channel.

Same process used to write the firmware.
