Right now I have a maximus xtractor pro and a vampire spear. I recently tried to flash a drive by doing the method of using that without a rebuild board that is featured in the JungleFlasher tutorial (that pdf file that's like 250 pages). I keep getting a 0x52 error and then it dawned on me that I'm not sure my maximus is hooked up to my computer right. It's hooked up via usb and I know I have my VIA card setup right. So I don't know if theres something special I should do with that. But moving on. I want to just forget the whole maximus and what I have because I'm not sure my trace cutting is okay. I want to do the solder free method that is also featured in the JungleFlasher tutorial. I know I will need a ck3 probe and some kind of connector. I think I will need the pro version. I don't wanna pay 60 for all that stuff but I guess I'll have to. Now the other thing I am confused about is how would I hook it to my computer. Like I said I have a VIA card that I will hook my drive to on the SATA side. I'm confused on if I will need to hook the CK3 Pro (or whatever I need) up through my usb port or whether I will need to hook something up differently. Pretty much I need to know what equiptment I will need and how I will need to hook it up. I can follow the tutorials I've seen once it's hooked up I just need some help in that department. Also if I can unload my maximus and vampire with some rebuild boards I would like to. I don't know if I can BST on this site but I'll just ask for the name of a site where people tend to buy these things. Thanks for any help in advance!
