Ok, I followed a guide to flash my TS drive with Xtreme 5.2 firmware
It told me to use KDX 1.5 to patch my original firmware which i did, and it said to copy the key that appears in the window, it DID NOT however tell me to paste it again after i loaded in the modified firmware. So yep I ended up flashing the modded firmware without my drive key on it.
Does this mean I now have a bricked drive? It still plays DVDs but not games.
Ive been reading about bad flash recovery methods but can I not just re-flash my original firmware as i have backed it up onto my PC drive.
I have tried to do this but it comes up with this error when using mtkflash
"something"=00 should be 70
Port:9e0 Master/slave:a0
or something like that (I use an Nforce4 onboard Sata chipset I know its a Sata prob and I use the modified mtkflash for nforce4).
It was coming up with that error before tho when i had an untouched drive but I somehow got round it and flashed the drive, so is that error msg cos of my nforce Sata or because it cant flash my wrongly flashed drive? I dont see why i cant just flash the origninal firmware back thats on my PC...any ideas?
Thanks guys

if you still have the key, you can recover by properly entering the key with fw toolbox in the fw.

if you do not have the key, sad.gif

Sorry for posting in wrong section

I downloaded the 360 FW Toolbox but its a windows program, how do I get it to recognise and flash my 360 drive with the original backed up key that I have?
