Nice writeup of HDD Hacking and JTAG

May 8th, 2015, 11:14

While boning up on JTAG, I found this interesting 4 part series on HDD Hacking. Goes to show that just diving in and trying things can be rewarding. I am interested to see more at this blog as the author indicates more work to be done. Check it out:

I've read this when researching for some chip off reading, using one of those arduino boards (that works like a charm despite the transfer speeds).

Spildit must have some say on this matter, who knows NSA forces all companies to place a tiny piece of code that spy on all of us on the bootloader :shock: :shock:
