    Ive been reading all over the net for about 6 hours and I want to reflash my drive back to the orignal bin but when I run the mtkflash command to my Primary drive (xbox 360 drive) just gets stuck nothing happens. What im trying to say, does the drive have to be in mode B using the 2 wire mode or slax cd in order for the Flash to go through because when I first flashed my drive I didn't do that and it flashed

    if so could someone post up a diagram with numbered pins for the SATA cable becuse I saw one online but wasn't clear enough to try

    I came acorss this one but I couldn't tell which way the was looking at it
    ___________
    I 4 3 2 1 0
    I 9 8 7 6 5

    Do the two I's represent that turn on the sata clable that it looks like an L if I'm wrong please correct me

    if you have a hitachi (which modeB is about) then mtkflash won't work. MTKFlash is for samsung drives. ModeB is what you need to get a Hitachi drive into before windows assigns it a drive letter. After you get a hitachi in modeB and want to restore your original firmware, run the restore.bat file included in the firmware.

    I bet you have firmguard installed (anything over xtreme 4) You have to burn the enable 0800 disc to a DVD+R DL (if you anything other than xtreme 5) or to a DVD+R (xtreme 5) and insert it into your 360 to unlock firmguard. Boot your 360 with the enable 0800 disc in it, wait 15 seconds and eject the disc. Then boot your PC and flash away.

    No problem, you can find the enable 0800 image with xtreme 3.3
    I think it's included in 4.0 as well

    thnks for that I was able to flash my dirve back to the original but its a little worse I put the original xbox 360 game in and it spins like its reading it then it says "open tray" could be a bad bin I still have my drive key so Im just going to try another bin and hopefully it will work

    could be the last question I have is it better to use
    "KEY DRIVE XTRACTOR/PATCHER" or
    "Heykey editor" I think
    they should do the same thing right??
