    Hi guys,
    I have the connectivity kit and want to flash my Samsung drive.

    1) Can I flash it while in Windows running the CMD? I have read some tutorials which says so.

    2) How do I restore the drive? Do I need to keep a copy of the original firmware? Does the new Xtreme 5.3 omit the need of the original firmware?

    As quoted: "The new RESTORE does not need any backup, it will 100% restore your drive back to "ORIGINAL" state as long as it is visible in Windows!"

    If I require the original firmware, can I just get another one and change the drive key to mine? How do I do it?

    Any tips or links to guides would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    1 - the samsung has to be flashed in dos before windows boots up. there are a few ways of doing this but i would suggest the Mtkflash command. (with the appropriate disk)

    2 - You will need to keep a copy of your orig firmware. To restore a drive, if in dos and using mtkflash you will have the orig file on a floppy / USB and can type mtkflash w /m /sata orig.bin at the command promptand that will put it back to how it was

    the restore that you are talking about i would guess is for hitachi's as sammys are not visable in windows. They all have to be flashed from dos before booting into windows.

    Update: YES! it read my Gears of War backup straight on the first try.
