That method is now outdated, you no longer need to solder anything to flash BenQ drives. D'oh! You should probably read this.

When you get your VIA(?) SATA card try using DosFlash32 in Windows. If that doesn't work, THEN use DOS.

You can use iPrep to create a USB or floppy bootdisk to boot into DOS. If that doesn't work for you read this.

This is the method I use to flash all my Benq. Works 100% of the time. You may have to try several times to get the drive in mode b


**There is no need to solder any wires with this method. It is a software flash. Does not require any type of mods to the drive.**


- First you will need Benq.iXtreme.v1.4 and DOSFlash3.2 installed on your PC. I have WindowsXP. Never tried on Vista cause I don't have it yet.
- With the PC off, connect the Benq to your PCs sata or Sata card make sure it is compatable. Leave the Benq connected to the 360s power supply.
- Turn PC on and boot to Windows XP
- Turn on the 360.
- Start DosFlash3.2
- DosFlash3.2 will ask you if you wanna resend the mtk vendor intro cmd, press Yes
- Turn off the 360 and wait 2 or so seconds the turn the 360 back on.
- You should notice the green power led on the 360 is flashing. This means the Benq is in modeb.
- DosFlash3.2 will pop up and show the info of the Benq drive.
- Press the Read button and save the firmware as "orig" in the Benq.iXtreme.v1.4 folder you wish. I used 8x
- Now run "Make iXtreme firmware" from that folder. You will see a new bin file called "ix14"
- The ix14 bin file is the hacked firmware you are going to flash your drive with.
- Now go back to the DosFlash3.2 window and from the drop down window choose "write"
- Now press the "write" button and choose the hacked file you created ix14.bin
- DosFlash32 will show progress of erasing and then writing the banks.
- You are now done.
