    I want to swap A non-working drive for a working one (both samsungs).
    My plan is to overwrite the new drive with the old ones OFW & key.
    Then, flash it with LT+ 1.9...The dashboard is the latest.
    Ive only flashed a drive twice, successful once. I dont want to brick
    the new drive so im hesitant. Does this sound right to u guys?
    Do i flash it with junglflasher the same way as i did the first one?

    Thanks

    well as long as you are on latest dashboard, there isn't any need to flash it twice. Just load your original dump and lt1.9 in jungle flasher spoof and just use that to flash. Read the jungleflasher pdf if you need help on how to flash, but should be same as before.

    Thanks for saving me a step. I will definitely read the
    PDF for exact instructions. I wonder if i should save
    the FW & key of the new drive, even though i know it
    wont help with the swap.

    You don't need the new drive's original key as long as you don't have the motherboard that originally was connected to that drive. With a Samsung drive I assume the original board is RROD?

    I feel your pain. I had a guy bring me a a 360 to flash. It was a Lite-On 7xxxx so I had to open the drive...... filled with roach waste. STANK!!!! Quickly put it back together and told him it was a no-go. If it were a BenQ, I might have done it right quick. But the Lite-On, you have to touch.

    I had a roach shit box once, sent it back to M$ like that too. I laughed at the thought of the poor guy or gal who had to open that and work on it.
