    hello im looking to buy a spare pcb in-case when unlocking my friend pcb i screw one up! (havent but would like to have a spare)

    in searching ebay i have found many unlcoked pcb but when asking questions about what chipsets they have i cant get straight forwards answer (im asking so i know what unlock i need to do in the future to reunlock the drive after it has been locked)

    i am starting to think that these drive are pemanent unlocked drive meaning simply lock and unlcok via jungle flasher is this TRUE

    another eg is this is what the sent me the chipset doesnt have 03 or 05 so niether winbond or mxic?????


    eg one item says The Unlocked PCB board that you will receive will have EITHER the Mediatek 1339E or 1335E chip


    ive been google but i cant seem to find any info on these unlocked chipsets can anyone make sense of this?

    i remember long ago that u could buy unlocked chipset and install them but was a toon of work and they came otu with work around so nobody bought them are these those chipsets just coming preinstalled on pcb now ?

    Get a TX replacement PCB.
    They got switches that can unlock/lock drives.

    Or make your friend pay more and install an Xkey, which is infinitely more easier.

    Why discard ease?

    A replacement board is extremely easy as the only thing you have to do is flash a firmware to it and lock it.
    Besides, it's yer mate who pays you for the job, not you for yer own.

    Or you'll screw another one up and you'll have to get a second board, netting you almost as much as the replacement board Dinoh's suggesting. It's a plug-and-play, no hassle, readily available solution - I don't know why you're so adamant against it. Welp, there's always eBay - you'll find all sorts of boards there.

    Yer quite thick headed lad.

    Again, It's easier for you to get a TX replacement board.
    It's not your money as yer mate pays for it.

    Unlocking drives require a risky hack or a less risky hack, depending on yer chipset.
    This risky hack can kill your DVD PCB permanently.

    Again, it's EASIER and less of a hassle to get a replacement PCB.
    We all know yer mate uses this to pirate games.
    Pirating games for free and not wanting to spend a little extra on quality hardware.

    TX replacement board or an Xkey are 2 extremely easy to use options.
    If you want to go ahead and potentially kill your drive and deal with a lot of frustration then go ahead.
