Hello!
I have received the drive in topic (WD5000BMVW-11S5XS0 - FireBird - 2060-771801-002) with completely fried ROM and 2 missing legs. :)

I have connected ROM IC to programmer but unfortunately, all I get in hex is (FF).
I have tried several ROM's and LDR's but no luck. No access to SA to determine the correct version of original ROM.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Firebird have unique data in ROM in module 4F, so you'll need the original ROM.

Maybe someone can access the damaged ROM. I very much doubt it's "fried", more like someone tried to switch it to another PCB and broke it :-(

I suggest you contact Allan in Denmark - user "digisupport"

Better to contact user Spildit, it is not a problem for him at all.

It is a problem.

Firebird have unique data in ROM in module 4F as stated.

Also if you have external ROM then there are no copy of ROM modules and 4F on platter.

You may want to try "hot swap" but most likely it will not work as well ...

Maybe you should try some more combinations of ROM/Module 11 and pray ?

Post a picture of your damaged rom chip. Many "slaughtered" chips can still be accessed.

And that kids, is why you never use a flamethrower to remove a ROM chip :lol:

This is exactly what's wrong with people doing DIY recovery.

I don't know if the customer did it by himself or someone else really did it. :)

Could you upload your collection of ROMs or 4F modules? I'm curious as to how they differ from other families.
