Hitachi are one of the easiest to flash, if its a 79 you will need to make an unlock disk but the others don't need it, just follow the instructions in the Jungle Flasher manual - really is just a case of clicking buttons in jungle flasher, if its not working its most likely your SATA chipset isn't supported, i use a VIA SATA pci card with drivers removed and never had a problem with the 4 hitachis i've flashed

yeah it shows up in jungle flasher but i dont know how to get it in mode b.

i know u have to make a slax cd but i dont know how to do that.

open the drive with the eject button and power off the drive. click on the mode b button then power on. If it goes into mode b then the drive will close

A galaxy far far away....
from reading the OP and all his replies he is definetly NOT using the JF manual

try reading the manual in the JF/doc folder (more than once if you have too)

slax cd? seriously... read

There is actually video guides on how to do it in the forums but you need a ck3 lite or pro to power the drive it's a lot more work using the Xbox to power it. Also you need to look on the drive label to see which one you have too before you go any further
