Im running Windows 7 ult x64. Using Motherboad SATA chipset Intel ICH7. Im using a phat BenQ VAd6038 drive on an old school xenon board. So I have flashed many drives before mainly phat benq and lite-on. I have not done so in about 2 years but nothing really seems like its changed method wise. I decided it was time to reflash when I put in a normally working version of backed up Devil May Cry 4 and it gave me the play DVD error. I then tried all of my backups all with same result. I assumed when I updated to dash 15574 (via USB, I got banhammered) that it reverted me back to stock. After battling to unlock said benq for hours yesterday I went to bed with no results. No matter what I just couldnt get it to Vendor mode. I could find the drive no prob but just couldnt unlock. Then I woke up this morning and decided to give it another go. And WTF do you know? it just maggicaly works with simple BenQ unlock first time. I changed absolutley nothing I still dont get how this is possible so I do an outro, turn off xbox, reboot, and I get that nice comforting solid NOT blinking green light that says my FW is A OK. I unlock again with out an Issue, Read FW, Save OFW with valid key, load the benq LT + V1.9 for post dash update I got from xbins into target FW, spoof the key over then hit write then BAM infamous JF BenQ freeze! I am now stuck in vendor mode and JF cant see the drive. I hit intro and drive reappears in vendor mode no prob. Then no matter what I press read, erase, or write it freezes every time. Then mystically out of the blue it decides to work again with out any issues. I write the OFW back to the flash write verifies just fine, I outro it displays back on the left side as proper lock status. However no matter how many times I power cycle or how long I leave everything disconnected Im stuck with flashing green light and no eject. JF has no problem finding the drive now, unlocking it, writing, ten when you do outro it gos back to normal status on left side. I do this in an endless cycle for 2 hours. I then try dos flash which also has no problems of any kind of any kind through the whole process either. SO no matter how many times I try these I am stuck with the same problem. Any suggestions guys? One more question if I update with the 15574 update file on USB again will it fix my drive back to working stock?
