I recently purchased a replacement DG-16D4S unlocked PCB. I accidentally wrote the incorrect firmware onto the board and then locked the SPI. I wrote a Phat 0251 instead of 0272. (That's what I get for trying to rush it) I locked it under the "Phat" option and now I can't unlock it to write the firmware. The chip on the board is MT1339E if that helps. I looked into it and I'm guessing I need to MRA in order to get it unlocked but this board is different from what others show so I'm scared to try it out.

I can intro the drive fine selecting "Phat" option and going from there but the SPI is locked. Yes, I have already tried clicking 0x8c and it does not unlock. But when I select "Slim" and press 0x8c it'll unlock but once I intro the drive it'll take me back to the 'Phat' option and say it's locked.

I can't unlock it using any other option like Ben Q unlock either.

Now I've asked around and I was told to try kamikazing it. But I don't want to try it until I'm certain it'll work.

And I mean I can always but another one for $25 but I mean if I can unlock it and get it going then that would be awesome.

Thanks guys.

It is a 4s. Because I wouldn't have been able to write anything to it or intro the drive. It was unlocked 9504.

It is MT1339E and I am sure it is from ebay, it is custom PCB layout.

It looks like there is MX25L2005MC. Try disconnect WP (pin 3) and solder wire from it to pin 7 or 8.

Can you explain a little more where those pins are so I can try this out please? Thanks.

Did you ever get this to work? I am having the same problem but wrote a good 4s firmware.

I got mine to unlock by removing pin 3 then jumping it to pin 8
