Darn, I was hoping I could just read the key out of the 1175 and flash it into a spare unlocked pcb I have.
You need a system made before like July or August 2011, they start putting them in around that time. Other then that you can get the rare hitachi drive, but now any system you buy will most likely be 1175 or hitachi and not anything you can do with it. Systems made around august till probably like October or November will probably have chances of a flashable liteon, but the farther out from there will most likely be the dreaded unflashable ones...
You might be able to RGH your system if you dont use live, then you can just play off USB hard drive, but you need to make sure you have a trinity motherboard first and not a corona, also same thing, starting in late July and then in August 2011, they changed to using Corona boards and 1175 and hitachis more, so if you can RGH without worries of live, that would be your best bet. Just need to confirm your mobo type is all.
