except i usually see the status: 0x51 error - but once I saw a status: 0x80I cant get it to read, i power on and off and it never works.
it will have something like 0x52
then i turn my xbox on and it will go to 0xD2 and just keep changing from 0x52 to 0xD2
over and over powered on and off 15 times.
any help eclipse?
This is after i type DosFlash
then it says the MTKFLASH error, then i type Y
but that didn't work for me either.Have the Benq on when you turn the PC on. Then turn it off before you type dosflash. The type y and turn it back on.
but I still can't get my benq into vendor modeThis is how I got it to read my BenQ with dosflash 1.8 with a HP Pavilion Elite HPE-112Y practically out of the box PC. Here is my method.
Make sure you set the SATA Mode to IDE in BIOS (As mine is defaulted to RAID. Windows 7 crashes (Blue screen of death) if it's set to IDE, but you are booting DOS, so it's good.)
Assuming you followed the guide to setup your bootable flash drive:
Unplug all SATA cords from the SATA ports of your PC. This is to protect against accidental flashing of the firmware of your innocent hardware.
Connect a SATA cord to your PC and XBox 360 BenQ DVD Drive
Boot into DOS with flash drive
Power on XBox 360
Type DOSFLASH and press enter
It will most likely fail this try
If you are using dosflash 1.8 it will show you additional techniques, the next one being Magic something, do not continue yet.
While the XBox 360 is still powered on, unplug the SATA cord from the XBox 360.
Wait until the XBox 360 loads the dashboard (THE XBOX 360 SHOULD BE POWERED ON THE WHOLE TIME FROM WHEN YOU BOOT DOS).
Once at the dashboard reconnect the SATA cord to your XBox 360 BenQ DVD Drive.
Now continue by typing Y and press enter.
