MXIC is macronix, so at least you don’t have to worry about the kamikaze hack. yeah you can dump the firmware, but you need to unlock the spi, which will allow you to write to the drive. did it save you a file called dummy.bin? that is what you need. for other drives you can just save the key, but the slims need the whole firmware. the dummy contains all the information about that drive. it always will offer to load the latest firmware. to unlock you just need to make a cut next to the little red box in this picture and then connect the resistor at the points shown. they talk about using other programs to send the spi unlock to slims drives in some tutorials, but now jungleflasher has a button for that itself. it is the button in the bottom right corner that says 0x8C (when locked) and it will become 0×00 when unlocked. you press it again after writing the firmware to lock your drive back. you will also need to repair the cut in the board you made when you are done.
