phat hitachi's are not reflashed to retail with the new dashboard update; only the benq and liteon's. however, the hitachi retail FW's are available from the usual places. in order to restore to retail, you will need the console's dvd key, or you will have to dump the dvd key, so that you can spoof the retail FW with the proper dvd key before attempting to flash your hitachi with it.
if you flash before spoofing, out of order, you will have to RGH it to get the dvd key back.

If it's 78 to 79 Then there was a dash rev last year that re wrote drive firmware, however I believe tha doesn't happen with the latest dash.

fyi, it is possible to retrieve that hitachi dvd key from just about sata adapter so all you need is a good tutorial for hacking the drive and then, instead of spoofing a hacked FW for flashing to the drive, spoof the retail FW and flash that to the drive.
