Pre-flashed hacked FW CC still not working on V12
I installed a CC on to my V12 PSTwo and could not flash it. I took it out and installed it in my friend's V4 and flashed it with hacked FW 1.5 and all originals and B/Us worked great. I also loaded BM1.6 on the Memory card. I took out the pre-flashed CC and put it back in the V12. The BM worked and boot up right away. The originals worked, but it just won't read the B/Us. FW upgrade disk, CDR, DVDR all not working.
I read there are many CC that is some what defected and will work only in V1 - V7, but not V9 - V13? I also heard if you pre-flash it on V4-V7 then put it in V12 and it will work OK? (appearantly not). Is there anyway to make the hack FirmWare pre-loaded CC work in the V12? or do I have to try to get a replacement? I hate replacement because 1) many won't replace it, 2) if they do it will take a super long time, 3) often you will get another defected one and start all over again.
How many CC, DMS4, Matrix Inf are having the same problem? I hard 1 of 10 or even 7 of 10 chips will not work on V12? Is this true? Which chip has the most success rate on V12? Does this mean we many have to throw away S40, $80, or more before we will get lucky and get the one CC that works on a V12? Is the CC team working on this problem?
Please share your experience as this is so frustrating.
