    I have the Hitachi 2120L drive v47DJ. I used Slax 2.1 with my on-board SATA (Asus P4B 800E) to get to mode b. That worked great. Then I rebooted to Windows (using Vista). I tried to use Maximus 360 Firmware Update, but that kept giving me read errors... so I went to the Maximus-Gayyopa_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_3_stealth_rev2. To see what was going to happen, i ran a restore and it worked great. I then ran flash23S. It looked like the backup succeeded then it started flashing. at step 3, it just hung there.

    Here is the output:

    ****************************************
    * *
    * Maximus-garyOPA: Xtreme v2.3 Stealth *
    * HITACHI ALL VERSIONS 8in1 *
    * *
    * BASED ON THE WORK BY garyOPA *

    Making BACKUP of your DRIVE KEY...



    Dumping CURRENT firmware...



    Detecting VERSION of drive...


    ---------- VER.BIN

    ---------- VER.BIN

    ---------- VER.BIN

    Making XTREME patch for v47...


    Flashing 1/9 sector 90003000 (Xtreme Custom Code)...

    done


    Is the flashing stable...


    Done.
    Done.

    Flashing 2/9 sector 9003e000 (Master Checksum)...


    Flashing 3/9 sector 90035000 (Security Sector Read)...


    Then it just hung there.. I waited about 20 minutes and nothing was happening...

    I rebooted and ran the restore. It worked and it looks like the 360 is back to working order.

    Does anyone know what I should do to update the firmware? I am pretty nervous about trying it again.

    Thanks!

    I got 360 Firmware Toolbox to read the firmware. I must not have gotten the disk in there right or something.

    When I go to smart hack patcher, only XTREME16_0078+ shows up. Is that the right one to apply?

    Thanks!

    I tried the flash23S.bat again from Maximus-Gayyopa_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_3_stealth_rev2...

    It stopped at the same point 3/9. Luckily the restore worked again.

    I ordered a new SATA card just in case that is it.... Seems odd to me that the restore succeeds, but the patch doesn't. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I heard Vista can be problematic for flashing too. I just have XP myself. There's no need for me to upgrade right now.

    Congrats on that! Just so you know, I've read around other forums, and they say that lots of people have had problems Flashing their Drive while in Vista. You may want to stay away from Vista, if Flashing your Drive.
