I was repasting my xbox 360 and upon reassembly I accidentally inserted the dvd power connector upside down. The console it's self still works but now the dvd board is fried as seen in the image below. Is there anyway I can extract the key? or perhaps repair the board?

hmm... not sure why you removed the cable from the board. if it's a phat (don't know what a slim looks like as I've never owned one), you can just detach the sata cables from the drive, leaving them intact on the board, and still repaste. I'm surprised that it let you put the cable in upside down. usually electronics won't allow that for this reason. iirc, the dvd cable is a 5V (on phats at least). @brickmii82 or @DinohScene might have a suggestion. I'm not sure. it's been years since I've opened up my system.

another way would be if you have a NAND dump. someone on temp showed me this a few months ago, but it's called keyvault modder. it can use encrypted or decrypted kv from nand dump along with cpu key. it will show the dvd key in there. I can't recall how you extract the kv directly, but a google search should do it. I already had encrypted and decrypted versions of it on my pc.

Iirc Jungleflasher has stock firmware so as long as you get the same drive board you should be able to Rgh the console and get the keys, revert back to stock, and program the DVD key and FW to the new board and just swap the boards but there’s a few wires you’ll have to solder

imo, it really depends on the board if it's worth doing any of this stuff. it'd be a definitely no if that's a xenon or perhaps any phat model really. 360s are so cheap now anyway. plus, you'd probably be spending almost as much just to get a working board as a working unit. the cheap ones usually have something wrong with them, so it would be like replacing a broken board with another broken board. if it were me, I'd just buy a new system. I strongly recommend an rgh if you're using a phat though, because you can manipulate the fan speeds or even create temp thresholds. my phat 360 actually runs cooler than my slim ps3.

It's fucking keyed and I still managed to plug it in upside down.

a jasper is pretty good. I might keep that, so if you can rgh it, you can get the key. you need the cpu key and nand backup to get at the kv (where the dvd key will be). here's what that one app looks like:

Don't feel bad, that is how I fried my xkey. It slid right in upside down like it belonged there. I saw the smoking and quickly disconnected it. Nothing looked burned but when I put it right the functions weren't there anymore.
