So I've used NandPro to read the nand twice. The two debug logs are identical, but they both have an error.
the DebugLog.txt is
Testing LPT device address:0378
Using LPT device at address:0378
Error: 254 reading block 1E2
I thought I read somewhere that this is semi-normal and not all nands will be 100%. Is it safe to flash the nand using these nand.bin files as good back-ups? I just wanted to make sure before I go any further with the JTAG/Xell exploit. Any pointers would help.
As it's set up, I have the 3, 330 ohm resistors, and the 100ohm resistors attached. I have the diode but it isn't attached.
Also, I need to get the dvd key because I got an ebay'd box with no dvd key. If there are any tips or problems that are common please let me know.

its pretty normal to get a badblock just do afew more dumps 4 - 6 if they all get the bad block in the same address its normal, i also sugest you used infectus tool to see if there are any bad paes

Ok I've checked the nand.bins with the infectus toot 1.1.
Using the HY27US08281A-X360 I get 32768 total pages, 2 bad pages, and 1532 empty pages.
The detailed log shows Bad Block at 0x7C4400 & Bad Block at 0x7C4610
There are 30 lines in the top part of the log, all have two starting and ending points and all say contigous memory used.
This is for both of the nand reads I've had. I'm currently doing a third read and it'll be done shortly.

Ok I can't edit my second post. Obviously I'm using the infectus tool and not the infectus toot...
The third read is done. Using the infectus tool I get the same exact results as the original two.
I've also compared the 3 nand reads to each other using UltraEdit32 and all three are identical.
0 : 0 Bytes diff, 17301504 Bytes match, 17301504 : 17301504 Bytes total.
Seeing as there ARE bad pages should I not continue? I'm certain that not doing anything to the setup I have going wont change the read. Do I need to add the diode or should I not worry about it? I'm going to perform a fourth read but I'm certain it's going to give the exact same read out.

I would add the Diode to be safe but 2 bad pages dosent sound to bad i know another person who had that and worked perfect.
Anyway add the Diode do the dumps if it fixes the problem well done!
