I am flashing a Samung drive after having bricked one previously ( I did successfully flash a Hitachi before that). So, to play it safe, here was my plan of attack.
1. Extract Firmware via X360SAM .02 twice using the SAMREAD command. Compare the firmware extractions using MTKFLASH to verify good extracts.
2. Look at the firmware with a hex editor to make sure the key was extracted.
3. Use X360SAM .02 to flash the Samsung Drive with the injected Xtreme v3 firmware using the SAMHACK command.
Please comment on my steps if possible. If there is a safer way, I would also be interested.

sounds good to me, however one bit of advise that I think would be prudent,
make sure you save your original extraction is saved, without saving your orig.bin in multiple places like everywhere on the forums advises you to do, one balls up could end up in tears,
This method sounds good but before you create your hacked firmware save your original firmware in a few places first,,,,,,,
there are too many posts on this forum regarding bricked drives where the original FW was lost............

totally agree.. put on on a floppy, one on a external hard drive, write down the entire hex contents on paper, back one up to cd, one to dvd, one on a zip drive, and one in three seperate safe deposit boxes...
well, maybe 2 or 3, but make sure they are safe.

Forgot to mention emailing one to yourself.
