I have some money on my paypal I can donate I just need 1 because I'm goin to flash some slims today I just need to make sure I'm doing everything correct.i

The probe doesn't come with any PCB's, but maybe the new ones do come with the Sputnik Probe Switch (not the Sputnik Swich w/ probe built in)???

Anyway, they are cheap, $2 retail, and you don't have to re-solder the trace cut on every flash so it's worth the few bucks for sure!

There is the probe switch which is a small switch and you probe the spot, the switch in my picture is the Sputnik Switch, which basically is the same thing, with the probe built in.

Clean, scratch pen, clean, cut, test cut with multi meter, clean, solder switch with flux, probe/flash.

Clean = rubbing alcohol and qtip.

you say you are flashing a few slims today,the best thing you can do is read the tuts here and the tut that comes with jungleflasher,then you will need to find out what the ic chip is on the drive mxic can be unlocked sputnik switch are probe,winbond needs the kamikaze hack to unlock,are replace pcb with a tx pcb

there should be no reading if cut is correct , but if you use a fibreglass pen on the place were you cut the trace before you start you will see you have cut the trace cleanly
