    Its bricked. but since you should have the original firmware file you could just buy a new drive and flash that to your keys. as MS will not fix it since the warranty is broken.

    yeah the original firmware was lost when the thing crashed unless im searching for the wrong thing? what would it be saved as? also i saved the sticker and it doesn not seam like it was tampered with, and i read that they do not really check so would they still repair it or not?

    The original file would be Org_ then the brand of drive you have. you should still have it or at least the hacked one since they make you save both. And yes, MS will take it as long as the sticker looks fine.

    alright thanks for the positives comments and my sticker looks decent so i hope they fix it. also would the hacked version be benq-OfW.bin or Benq-CFW.bin? because i have both of those and im not sure wich is wich? and wich is a cheap drive i can buy and flash as a replacement for the bricked one?

    OFW = Original Firmware. CFW = hacked

    can't you still flash a benq even if there's no firmware on the drive? I'm not sure where I read that, but it seems like they were pretty much unbrickable by anything short of tampering with the hardware.
