Hi oliver.

Check this link if you have acces to Ace blog - https://blog.acelaboratory.com/boot-rom ... rives.html

There is also a way to reprogram the ROM on newer (sata pcb) WD drives 2.5" when pcb is in busy mode. Need to solder two pins and use MX-safe adapter and follow the regular boot code procedure.


Good luck!

Assuming the PCB does have an extrenal ROM chip you can use an extrenal ROM programmer as well ...
