I would definately check my LPT wiring again. I had this write 0x000400 error and could not figure why it was doing this. I then just happen to look at one of my wires and it had come off the soldering point on the MB. I soldered this wire to the bottom of the mb cause the soldering point was easier on the bottom and it started to write perfectly. I would use an ohm meter and make sure you have good contact on your solder points to connector.
All of the wiring looks fine, everythings connected etc. I had updated my first post saying the console doesn't even turn on anymore. Before I tried to read anything, I tried to write (no reason to read if I have all of my backup files etc) and it resulted in errors, so I stopped it. I'm wondering if maybe it wrote "something" but didnt finish, and now the console doesn't turn on (it atleast turned on with the green power symbol in the middle before hooking it up to the computer).
Edit: Now the flash confi says "0x0000A000"
I was reading another thread on here and someone was having the same issue, and stated:
"Nandpro was able to detect my NAND. I began doing a read of it, and boy oh boy, did infectus screw the $#!t out of this. I kept getting read block errors over and over and over!"
When I ran flash360 it flashed but didn't completely work (console still booted, but with E71/just a green power symbole). Then, when I tried to just reflash XBR over LPT, 'some of it' flashed but because I saw errors, I stopped it.... and that's why I'm getting so many read.. and write errors? Obviously something had to have been written to the NAND, as after trying to write over LPT (and aseeing all the errors) the console no longer boots. I'm guessing the only option at this point would be to erase the NAND and then just flash my 512 backup? Would there be anyway to erase just the first 64mb and then reflash XBR? Sorry if any of this sounds stupid, I'm trying to toss some ideas out there and hopefully someone with more knowledge can point me in the right direction!
To sum it up:
Console currently does not turn on AT ALL. I can read the NAND, but all it shows is errors (It doesn't say "no flash controler found"). When I write to it, all it shows is errors. Wiring/cable all looks fine, its the same setup I used to flash the console in the first place, nothing has changed. I have every backup. What should I do from here?
