    I must sound like a retard, but were did you get instructions for the eeprom reader. Also: What IC chips were their? (skylite)

    (Time to check instructables)

    I used the same design as the xbox eeprom reader (because I had to use it on my xbox anyways)
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/357863
    just 2 4k resistors, a serial port and 2 zener diodes

    I used pin 8 or at least the eigth pin from the left on the cf card reader as a ground and put it in my ds and turned it on to supply power.

    as for what ICs... other than the eeprom there is one major ic thing on there but it's mostly faded out on the front but heres what I can make out.

    QY7C683008 56PVXC
    B 04PRI 0619
    CYP 634051

    thats probably not completely right but close.



    Edit: judging by my google results its probably a CY7C68300B-56PVXC

    I had made my own eeprom one for my 360. It's called a unicorn.
    If you don't mind could you please take a picture of the guts?

    that is a usb to PATA chip , I guess the MMD uses it to communicate with the CF card.

    so is there anything useful to be done with this dumped eeprom? perhaps enable the max media dock to run in gba mode and use gba homebrew? please dont flame me if thats stupid, im not too good with this kind of thing

    useless... maybe

    but it's not a sav file. when put in a hex editor you can make out a few words like datel and some others I can't remember. I don't know where they show up. Probably when you plug it into your pc via usb.

    that means this is probably the mmd firmware.

    well, I guess you need to run it through a disassembler, maybe an ARM disassembler.

    OK I'll look into that... although I'm not sure why I would want to.
