Hi all,

I attempted to flash my samsung firmware using the autoflasher (big mistake) my drive stopped working. Looking at the ORIG.bin file it saved, it has just filled is with ff's

I was able to undelete a bin file off the pendrive i used, that looks very similar to the xtreme30 firmware.

The files size is only 64k but could this be my original firmware?

I have attempted to copy what I think is my key (below) into the xtreme30 firmware and then flash my drive. When i attempt to load an original or backup game I get a message asking me to put this game into an xbox 360.

My question is.... does this look like a valid key?

The Orig.bin should be 256KB, its is a bad dump, i do not know if you canrecover your original key from there though.

Ehm... well, mine has just a lot of ff ff ff ff ff..
this is the first time i actually see so many hex...

my org.bin has maybe like 10 to 20 hex that are different from FF[[EDIT:: Between $4000 and $4400]

hmm.. maybe mine is broke too... :-(
so far mine still works though... well it reads originals dont know about backups cause according to chopsticks my dvd-burner isnt good enough.. so i ordered a pioneer DVR-111D

cheers for the replies so far...

I ran step 1 of the auto installer (read original bios) a couple of times. Then I finally ran the other step which screwed my drive.

The same ORIG.bin file was getting overwritten each time. So I ran some software to see i can recover any of the original ORIG.bin files that start with 00000000 02 1C 30 02 1D 92 4A 4C-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ..0...JL........

I manage to recover a few identical files which have they key I posted above.


From your post above and other posts it does look like there is to much "stuff" within the key.

Happy days!!

I was looking through the files i managed to recovered and discovered one of them had what looked like my key in it... flashed my drive and IT WORKED!



So all you people that have bricked your drive by an autoinstaller and not made a backup of your key there is still hope.

I used an app called easyrecovery professional. It allows you to search a pen drive for deleted or overwritten files. It also allows you to put the starting address to search for. I entered the starting address of the xtreme30 bin file and it recovered my files

Im happy now biggrin.gif

Glad to see you got yours working Mike. Hope you don't mind me posting in your thread because I have some sort of similar issue going on.

I have a Samsung. Booted DOS and did the mtkflash r /m orig.bin. I patched the new xtreme 3.0. Flashed. Drive wouldn't read originals or backups, came up with the insert into xbox screen. Now check this out, when I look at the key from 4000-4400 it is filled with hex sort of like the one posted above, and doesn't have lots of FF's etc like a normal drive key. This is where I began to panic smile.gif However, I reflashed with the orig.bin that I saved and I am now able to play originals again - thank god.

The problem.... what happen to my key? Why did mtkflash give me bad portion of hex when dumped? Can I recover some sort of way? sad.gif am I screwed?
