Did you manage to read your firmware & get a dump?
Without a firmware backup your screwed unless your drive can be read & your key extracted.

A new drive would certainly fix your prob but you would still need a dump of your firmware from the old drive.
I can sort one out for you if you send me your old drive then i can extract the FW from it

PS. commas & full stops in your posts would help! I went blue reading that jester.gif

First thing m8, what drive do you have? what firmware did you flash? have you got your orig.bin file? this info will give peeps a better picture and may help you out a bit more.

You need the key out of your drive first, if you have a good dump of your orig.bin your key will be in there, open it up with firmware toolbox 3.1 and it will give you your key, once you have your key you can insert it into another dvd drive and use it in your 360. Just putting a new drive in without your key wont work.

if you cant find the original dump of your drive you will have to get your drive to someone with a programmer who will read your flash rom chip and hopefully get your key and reprogramme your drive back to factory firmware, without the key your 360 is an oversized paper weight.

i think the only way to recover it is to send it to someone with a programmer who should be able to sort it out for you. is your orig.bin 256kb in size? and where do you live?

take it you dont have a small 2kb txt file which should have your key in it, key.txt i think its called.

You have had a bad dump of your firmware and a bad flash of your drive, best bet is to send it to the guy in the link below, go on the site and register, hit the hitachi bad flash recovery and go on from there. you will need to confirm what model hitachi you have: 46, 47, 59, 78, 79 and choose the hitachi option that your drive is under. Hopefully monkey will sort it for you, if he cannot fix it he does not charge.

He is very good at what he does, he will probaly flash it correctly for you also.

Winchester, been there a few times, was working at worthy down barracks not far from the town.

good luck,

Thats the problem m8, he has no orig.bin with his key so his only option is to have it put on a programmer to have it rewritten after the key has been extracted. If he had his key then simply buy a new unit off ebay for 30 delivered and insert the key, job done.
