I have a Philips-LiteOn 16D4S drive.
Could someone tell me exactly what I need to flash it please?

Depends on the chipset. Winbond kamikaze hack or MXIC sputnik hack.

Hooking the drive up in jungleflasher and sending the vendor intro to the drive, or by opening the drive case and looking for 03 (MXIC) or 05 (Winbond) as the first 2 numbers of the chip.
Sorry I'm a noob, could you explain that easier?
It's going to be too difficult for you to do. If you haven't done any research of it by yourself, you most likely don't even have the basic flashing parts.

You can either look at the chip

or load up Jungleflasher and put the drive into vendor mode.

If you are not sure how to do that you are going to have problems performing a kamikaze hack or installing a switch. Safest bet may be to send it out for flashing or buy an unlocked pcb.

Didn't tag you or whatever this is (responding perhaps?) so maybe you didn't see my reply above. Nevertheless, as I just said, and I quote "The chips a pain in the a## to spot, but I have a "WINBOND." Can you offer any (further) assistance?" Thanks!

The winbond will require a kamikaze hack.


This dude uses a soldering iron. I use a dremel bit.

It's not for everyone :biggrin:

If you'd like more info you can pm me.
