you need to see whether you have a winbond or mxic chip. if you take the drive apart and look at the board there should be a number printed on it. 03 is mxic, 05 is winbond. mxic is easy to unlock, you can use the “sputnik” switch or probe, or i believe you can just use a certain resistor if you don’t want to buy more expensive tools. winbond requires you to cut a wire inside of the chip itself so you have to do what is called the “kamikaze” hack. either method should be easy enough to find online. you should not have to buy a replacement circuit board unless the unlock method fails. if you know what you are doing this should not happen with mxic boards. however there is a much greater chance to fail using the “kamikaze” hack, hence the name.
