Hello coleagues,

i do need support for a SSD Verico Nighthawk - controller SM2258XT, NAND not marked.
It looks like FW panic/failure, and I want to ask if someone can load the resources in order to get access to the user data.

The drive is identifying correctly in ROM Mode and shows 1Gb as capacity .
Weite me in private if more comfortable with this.

Otherwise, I will appreciate any support

I am going to add some pictues. It is probalby very rare model and PCB version.
Anyway, two aspects are not nice.
1. the NAND chips are not marked other then T8 T9 U4 and U5
2. I can see some possible sign of damage on the chip U5 ( from how it looks a very dark spot)

What do you guys think about this?

Does anybody know for sure if this controller SM2258XT is using data encryption?
Is chip off method then a solution or “just”fixing the firmware, generating translator makes sense.

Thanks

Yes, you can't transfer chips to other board, it won't work.

Do you have PC-3000 SSD?

Not yet, i do not have yet PC3000. That is why I cannot purchase the SSD module separately.
I’m sure will be the easiest and fastest solution. Still, not sure if. This model will be supported.

Would you like to have a try?

I can certainly try, but you'd have to send me the drive.
