Is there any way to extract a drive key from a dead "logic board" from a samsung/toshiba ms25 xbox360 drive?

The board will not power up. Already tried swapping the logic board into another same model drive that works with no avail. This board is dead and the xbox is fine. Boots up and everything. I heard of a way where it can be retrieved from a chip from the board. maybe? hate to see this go to waste due to this. Thanks

have you hooked it up and tried to read it in JF?

Yes, Jungleflasher shows no drive detected. It is dead. No sound of activity. Connected a good replacement drive and JF detects it. Unfortunately, I am not proficient in circut board tracing to bypass to get power. A shame that a simple key is all i need. Maybe a reliable service site that has an expertise in this?

This is way late, very sorry, but if you're still looking for an answer the best option would be to RGH or JTAG the motherboard to retrieve the key. RGH if your dashboard is newer...there are many ways to do this these days...lots of info posted on the forum as well as in other places across the web.
"All drives should be updated to Lite Touch + (LT+) firmware if playing on XBOX live. Samsung drives and pre-78/79 Hitachi drives do not utilize AP 2.5. All other drives are considered to be detectable by Microsoft (YMMV). Make sure all rips are ABGX verified, contain SSv2, and patched AP2.5 (where needed). XGD3 must currently be burned on new drive with PC Burner Max firmware for 100% rip. All modded consoles can be potentially unsafe for use on XBOX live."
