First off all credit goes to MRA for the original concept. Original thread HERE

The only difference between my method and MRA's is that he instructs people to cut "pad101" away from the trace. The problem is that this is not that easy for most people. After you do it his way the pad is very weak. Many people broke the pad off while cutting it from the trace and others damaged it after when they heated it up to solder. So I came up with a 3 cut & 2 jump method that I think is much safer for the average user. Also he has the Ground point going to a tiny pad when most of the circuit board is Ground.

Also i have included some very high quality pictures that show every step in great detail.

See all the pictures in DOUBLE the resolution at this LINK

Instructions (also by MRA i changed a few words)

-Switch in closed postion (on) (position 1 on MRA's diagram)
-power drive
-start dosflash --> spi should get discovered with status 0x72
-Flip switch to open position (off) (position 2 on MRA's diagram)

-click READ

-If you have a Winbond SPI Flash inside (i know, you canīt be sure about this from the outside) you will probably get status 0x72 but instead of recognizing the Winbond flash it will be recognized as unknown flash chip (manufacturer and device ID 0xFF). If that is the case you canīt use Dosflash anymore, you have to use JF!

-start JF
-put the switch in position 1 (ON)
-power drive
-in the MTKFlash Tab click "intro"
-it shoudl get "recognized" as unknown flash chip with status 0x72 like it was in Dosflash
-put switch in position 2 (OFF)
-click onto "intro" again
-now JF should recognize the Winbond SPI with status 0x72 and you can dump the whole drive

IMPORTANT: Donīt power the drive down between the 2 intros!

There is a thread for that. Ask any question about creating the hacked firmware in the thread linked below.
http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=697955

These drives can't be bricked. If something goes wrong during firmware writting you can erase it and start over.

We are using iXtreme 1.6 at the moment.

Maximus created what he calls firmware templates. They can be found on xbins. Here is a link to the info http://www.xbins.org...xboxnfo1754.nfo

FYI direct links to firmware are not allowed.

Your questions are about firmware so they really should go into the other thread. I would prefer it if this thread answered questions about the soldering and wiring.

I use dosflash32 myself. I have not used dosflash16 in years.

well done & good job but personally I hope it will be a slution to dump this liteons drive's without soldering/cuting anytihng on the PCB (with a made-home tool's !!!!!)
thanck you very much

Not me. This makes the hack hard enough that most people will hire someone to do it. Most of my local competitors don't know how to use a soldering iron.

No homemade tool is going to be able to cut traces and that is required to pull down the voltage to make this hack work.

I don't think c4eva or team jungle are going to spend any time working on a software dumping method now that this is possible.

Please buy it from

Nutech Electronics
11E Neilson Street
St. Catharines, Ontario
Tel: (905) 682-9200
Fax: (905) 682-8922
Toll Free: 1-866-6NU-TECH
Email: nutechstkitt@bellnet.ca

Let them know BOXXDR sent you.
They don't have online ordering but you can simply send them a email and let them know what you want.
You can also get your resistors and a switch from them at the same time if you need it.
You might want to order 22ohm and 20ohm. If you are getting status 0x52 a 20ohm resistor is supposto to help.

Boxxdr, this looks absolutely awesome, great job. By the way, what did you use to cut those traces? It may just be due to pic magnification, but it doesn't look like a regular scalpel cut?

Well this might sound scary to some people but I used a high speed rotary tool. (aka Dremel grinder)

Here is what you do.

Use a very small cutting wheel. If you don't have a small one wear a big one down on a rock or something until it is less than half a inch in diameter.

Set your rotary tool at a low speed setting.

Hold circuit board and tool very steady. Make a few tiny taps until you clearly see you have separated the trace. If you are not sure check with a multi-meter but as you can see in my picture t should be really obvious.

Also it is good to note this is a single layer circuit board so you would have to grind really far to go thru to the other side and do damage.

I would love to hear from other experts on how they cut the traces.

Ask them if they have the lenline slimline in stock. It is probably a better brush for this type of detail work anyhow.
