Hi All,

Im stuck with a flashed drive which only gives me a "Play DVD" error (both originals and backups)

1) When i opened the drive it has a sticker stating 16d4s FW 1071. But when i used JF to dump key it populates as FW 0225.

2) I used a replacement PCB (non TX) and flashed a LT 3.0 0225 on the pcb (as suggested by JF)... Everything on JF is fine such and wrtie verified and stuff...

3) but when i soldered the replacement pcb on the drive i only get play dvd error...

4) I thought of reflashing but now the replacement pcb is locked and wont unlock (doesnt have the W0 - W1 switches)

5) I have placed the OG pcb back and everything works fine....


Please help me as to what went wrong and why the games dont work when JF confirmed the flash was fine....

I believe you need 0225e fw. Go to #JungleFlasher on efnet irc and ask for it.

Or maybe it is another 0225 (0225i maybe?), I'll find it for you one way or the other.

In the case of a spelling error, I blame Tapatalk.

Well if it was me and it indeed stated in jungle flashed that its a 0225"I would kamikaze it to unlock it and flash it. I wouldn't waste a replacement PCB

Ok, if you jump onto IRC on #jungleflasher, someone will be able to help you out. I was correct the first time, it is 0225e fw. A very rare occurrence, so not many people have it.

When you said "non TX", were you referring to a stock PCB or one made by another manufacturer?

alright guys the issue has been resolved... the guy who sold the pcb to me was kind enough to give me a new pcb... post flashing FW 0225e to it everything is just fine...

hence 164ds FW 1071 needs LT 3.0 FW 0225E...
