    Alright guy's. I've just been Jammy and swapped my PHAT box for a 250GB slim :p
    Managed to get it open and my drive is a Lite-On 16D4S.

    1st question I have is am I right in saying I can Kamikaze the 164DS?

    2nd question is How?

    3rd question is how do I extract the key incase I f**k it up! (I have a USB PRO v2)...

    If u can link me to any tutorials that would be great. I don't have a template to drill. I do have a drill tho and if I can get the key I am willing to risk it if I know exactly where to drill. I have also seen ppl do it with a soldering iron which I am happy to do if it's going to be easier.

    Thanks for any help guy's ;)

    You can extract the key simple right now, slim key then choose not to try unlock it and it will dump, you just need the dummy.bin.

    What F/W Version is the drive?

    1071 can be done but you'll need to open the drive and check the chip on the PCB.

    03X needs a chip
    05X Can be drilled

    *Bottom line.

    ...you can buy the PCB unlocked already if you don't want to drill or trace cut/solder yours.

    Yea you have the key so your all good.

    Buy the X-bond tool: http://www.modchip-store.co.uk/X-Bond.html it's not very hard just take your time and the Jungle Flasher will beep at you when you have unlocked it.

    ...some people use a soldering iron to burn through but I've only used a 1mm drill for it.

    Good-Luck.

    mate do not use a soldering iron !! theres no need for the xbond tool what i use is a scalpel no need for reisistors and such put the tip of the scalpel on the point click unlock spi status wait for the dots turn scalpel slowly applying light pressure in most cases jungleflasher will beep some do some dont turn gently until you get status 0x00 .

    if you get status 0x3 stop its unlocked close jungleflasher load youre key into firmware tool autoload the lt firmare do not spoof then intro youre drive should see spi status now unlocked click write ..

    hope it goes well ..

    Right lads. I have started drilling and got status 0x00. Drive was unlocked but I have a dodgy probe and I knocked it! Had to re-intro the drive but now the drive is locked again! What do I do?

    do you have some rubbing alcohol if so rub a bit on the hole it should reunlock or just do the spi procces again but use whatever tool you used the first time to unlock but be very gentle ..

    or if you have no rubbing alcohol ive used nail varnish remover in the past and a tip of a needle.

    when you get status 0x00 assuming that you have got youre correct firmware loaded do not spoof it and all the flash chip properties are still present just click write slim liteons take longer to write the firmware than phats .

    i will usually hit outro around three times

    oh and what i do most people will lock the board back up straight away i test its working first then relock it saves the hassle of having to do it again

    hmm thats a strange one ill just do some research and get back to you .

    right just been looking on the net and some are saying that the problem is that youve not gone in enough with whatever method youre using youve just as they have wrote just tapped the desired point .

    hmmm id say relock it then spi clear it again but try and go a little further if thats at all possible but only if you think its safe enough for you to do so .

    tried to get the epoxy off...failed, so thought Flubber it ill guess :p

    Read, flashed an left unlocked for sale ;)

    And Dave, try putting some Alcohol on your thumb and keep it over the hole while you click write, had problems in the past with a PCB I paid to get unlocked.
