hi m8, you will need to read out the hacked firmware (ixtreme) that is on your drive, this will always contain the drive KEY that you must apply to any further updates you do.
dont be tempted to just go ahead and write a new firmware straight onto the drive because it will overwrite your key with the key that is on the hacked firmware that could be either someone elses key or a load of 000000's.
ALWAYS make sure you have your key safe somewhere, even if you want to copy and paste it into a .txt file and save it on your desktop just incase of mistakes.
what im saying is treat your drive key like gold cause without it you have a brilliant door jam.
