thanks for the link, dave, i hadn't seen that!
where is it linked to?
it's not on the forum main page. it's not on rpc1.org's main page.
it's not in the Firmware flashing help
OK found this: http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?t=20504
but really you shout put it up somewhere visible!
i'll read it over.
i haven't have much experience with flashing drives at all.
hence part of the reason i want to flash my Toshiba.
what i mean to do is:
is the procedure i outlined in my post:
1. flash the drive back to firmware 1004 from rpc1.org. first setting the drive as master alone on its IDE channel. then flash 1004 fw from a FAT32 partition.
2. after i've flashed the 1004 the drive should be RPC 2, with no zone selected yet and 4 changes remaining (Nero InfoTool for example).
3. after it's back to 1004, i should play a DVD disc just so that it sets the zone.
4. now flash it with the hacked firmware from http://hijacker.rpc1.org/toshiba_nolimit
and the instructions there.
does that sound OK to you? with some help from Han i think i've got everything figured out and i think i understand what i need to do etc.
any special warnings or tips?
what do you mean by "Toshiba drives are not as safe to mess around with as some drives that you might be used to" ?
