my friend just got a 360 and i told him i'd mod it if i could.the latest i researched on the ms28 samsung drive is that it requires removing a chip and connecting wires within the dvd drive.i'm not doing this, so before i screw this thing back together i wanted to know if any brand new method of hacking the ms28 is out or soon to come out, thatg does not require hardware modification.

Do a search in the future. This thread is right above yours and has nearly the same exact title, with 42 replies.

Or just look in my sig for the latest tutorial.

HINT: You need a VIA chipset.

yeah thanks.i checked that thread out about two minutes after i made this one.i have a nvidia nf4 chipset, and i can re-confirm that it doesn't work with that.i hope Mr. Xtreme comes out with a firmware with a compatibilty for ms28 friendlier to more motherboards.but i would like to thank him for all the great work he's done and generously shared.

thanks, but i'm having a hard time understanding that..lets see..

At least have rom ( with a MTK chip set) on a IDE port.

(plug a cd/dvd rom in your ide)

No need to use switch in place of r408.

(no idea what that means)

Boot dos powerup 943 as sys is loaded.

(first turn on pc so the dos prompt comes up, then turn on 360)

Do this from cmd prompt:-
mtkflash r orig.bin

(from what i understand, cmd is loaded through windows.i'm confused)


program will prompt for selection of what port to unload.

(still confused)


Now depower 943

(turn off 360)


Next short to ground pin19 & 20 to ground & now poerup 943.

(mess with the wires next to the sata cable on 360 drive?similiar to wire trick method for hitachi drive? then turn on 360)


Just before selecting the port release pins 19 & 20

(don't know what you mean by port, release the crossed wires before selecting the port)


MTKflash will unload or write sst 39sf020 as normal

(things will go well)


If you apply my patch this proceedure will be no longer necessary

(and if we understand it..lol.)

I appreciate your time showing us other methods, but would you please translate it into a more user-friendly understandable way.
someone replied mentioning less soldering.from what i could interpret, there's no soldering involved at all.or is there?
