I’m having a terrible time getting my ms25 to read a proper flash rom. First I had difficulties just getting the drive unlocked to vendor mode, turning off/on and trying half drive open. Finally I used the last method on Xecuter site using probe 3 to get into vendor. Problem is the flash name and size shows unknown and n/a.
If I try to read, it says Unknown flash type Read aborted.

All I’m trying to do is get my LT+ flashed back to stock fw

here’s my log, I’m using both usbpro, ck3i, and the probe 3 which at least got me into a vendor mode. thanks

ok I got it to work :-D weird.. I dumped out of vendor mode. Unplugged/plugged usb and recycled power, then started JF. Drive showed up and clicked sammy unlock. This time it processed proper flash rom. I found the drive was spoofed to a ms28 by the modder I used last year. Reflashed it back to stock.

I’m not sure why this worked now, since I replugged and recycled power numerous times, and tried the sammy unlock before but failed.
