Thx man the timing trick helped a lot and also your tip to wait 20 sec's. The 10 sec's mentioned doesn't work for me. I always got a "usb device not recognized" message.
So here we go... finally i got something It's not working at all cause the dump procedure stops on 4-6% and or i get verification errors with diff settings. I need to play around a bit more and also to give a try on Ubuntu 11.10 with YASkeet.
But main thing it finally dumps something. A lot of FF's and here and there some strange bytes.
I've read that it would also be a good idea to solder more GND's to make the Dump/Write process more stable. We'll see if i cant get a full dump with or without verification errors i will open up the black beast and solder more GND's.
I then will do some pics with the crappy web cam. Just for sharing so others maybe get inspired.
I have found that 2-3 grounds really is about all you need. Also what windows format are you using. I had alot of problems with windows 7 and windows xp service pack 3. It works really well on xp sp2. Thanks.
racer I would like some info on your downgrading services. I have a cecha01 60 gb, sitting at a 4.11 ofw. The only thing I did was swap the 60 gb hard drive for a 500 gb. would this be something you would be interested in completing for me?
Just picked it up yesterday and I would like to unlock some potential in it.

Ok now with more GND's soldered i get the same result as before. But i have buyed a new slim yesterday and will downgrade it so i can't start work again and give a look on the bricked one a bit latter.
Sorry going to be running a late on the installs or downgrades. My kids grandma has passed away and have a lot to do this week. But I will still get them down and back to everyone in a good time. Also finished 8 of them yesterday so I will be sending them off today. Will post pics of the one that was the biggest pain in my butt.
The 40gig phat nor, with the Dia-001 mother board. Thanks and gotten lots of business. Also a lot of the people that sign up and send theirs said that they signed up because of the downgrade service that we offer here. So great job mushy! And me as well. Lol.
