Hi, I have a slim 0225 Winbond on 12431 dash which I would like to play backups on, I would like to check what my options are.
I have got the drive key and dummy file saved with JF.
As it's a winbond I think my choices are kamikaze or replacement pcb, does it make any difference being on an older dash?
Thanks

That PCB is locked anyway so you are just as well updating to the latest dash, the older dash doesn't give you any benefit just stops you playing newer games. You will have to either get an unlocked PCB or Kamikazae your existing one as you suggested.

Okay, thanks. So if I try a kamikazae and cock it up I can just get a replacement pcb? Just update to latest dash 1st and use the dummy file I already have?

Yes, that's correct. So don't worry, but if you are careful and take your time I'm sure you will succeed.

Whereabouts are you in the world?
Uk. I am happy to give it a try, I've done some reading and will make sure the volume is up on my pc and just take my time. Thanks

If you need any help let me know, take a good close up pic of the chip, count the legs and mark the chip to make sure you are in the correct place.
