with the replacement PCB, nothing won't show up cause it is blank, what you gotta do, is click on the phat button in the mtk32 tab, intro the device, follow the instructions it tells you to and the vendor mode would kick in, write to drive and lock both software and hardware.
i have done exactly that and then some dark mod - ive tried getting it found on different sata ports and nothing. It says in the jungle flasher tutorial even tho the device does not get detected as a 0225 drive it should still find the physical device on the connected sata port and just show up as blank. I dont get any joy even after intros and power cycles.
Is this a case that the board is dead/faulty or can it be it only wants to work with x360usb? I guess it could also be a possibility that even tho the original 0225 drive worked on jmicron chipset this blank one from TX is fussy?
Any additional help will be much apreciated.
Someone has mentioned probing but then i heard that guy burnt the pcb. I dont think probing is necassary for a 0225 drive is it? Especially a blank one. I just dont get that if my original drive worked for dumping on the chipset which was claimed compatible i would have problems with the blank pcb. Surely this would mean the board is one of the faulty batches - logically?
