I have a pre-flashed Hitachi 47DH, ROFL 360 that I am changing out the mobo (because of the ring of light, error 0110).
I've got Toolbox's tut on how to flash or restore and flash, but that assumes you are not changing the mobo key.
I've also got the Hitachi Key Insertion Tutorial which assumes you need to put a new DVD into the same mobo (kind of the reverse of what I need to do).
Now, I have the new mobo key, but I have never flashed a Hitachi before.
Since it is pre-flashed, I believe the proper procedure is to do a 'restore' first.
I know that I need to get it into modeb first (which I think I can do by powering off with the tray open, then powering back on since it is flashed with GaryOPA's 2.3 - but with the old mobo's key)
OK, lets pretend that I have it in modeb and I type "restore.bat" from a dos prompt, I would now have a fully restored firmware, albeit, it would still have the wrong mobo key.
Now, of course, I think I have to now use SLAX to get it back into modeb, since the power off with tray open trick will not work (since it no longer has GaryOPA on it).
Now I know once I put it into modeb, I can do a "Flash16s H 1234" assuming H is my DVD drive letter.
However, Where do I make my own firmware with the new mobo key?
Do I open the 47-16S that comes with Gary's package and inject my key into that with firmware toolbox, then encrypt it, and just place it into my flashing directory?
I don't want to risk bricking my Hitcachi 47dh, anyone with advice as to the proper procedure I need to swap out the mobo and the restore/reflash I need to perform to make it work with my new mobo?
Thanks in advance!!!
