sup guys.

Well me mate wants me to do his hitachi and i've read the instructions and stuff and they seem quite clear..now as you all remember i tried to do the sammy but ran into problems, mainly as i think that i had the wrong chipset for the sata cable and also the way my pc was configured for the RAID array that i had set up....any wayyyyy....

Me mates got a hitachi and i fancy giving it a go, i'm just not sure about 2 things

A. shall i use the 2 wire trick to put it into mode B or should i use the disk that you can download ?

B. i don't see any one loading new downloaded firmware into 360fwtoolbox_30.rar..

Sory to be a pain guys......

( thanks to ViolentJ for doing mine, worked sweet ever since )

what hitachi drive is it . ie: 78k , DO NOT use the 2 wire trick to put into b mode to much of a risk

hey all, thanks for your help.

Ok managed to get into Mode B using the slax cd and when i go to do the 1st part of the instructions

1. Open 360 Firmware Toolbox v3.0
2. Tools > Direct Drive Dump (GDR Only)
3. Choose your DVD drive from the drop-down list (there should only be one)
4. Click the button labeled "RAW Dump Firmware As ..."

i try this and it tells me that i need to insert a game dvd and wait 20 seconds but the drive keeps spitting the disc back out

any one ?

Thanks

To get the disc tray to stay in press the eject button 3x instead of 2x
