what i did with this drive is
1. connected to sata 0 with mrt equalizer after that read, unlock and write back the rom, copied sa,
2. sector access ok
3. logical scan with lots of yellows
4. then i did translator regeneration for p-list
5. Now the real magic happened, now logical scan all greens but all sectors shows zero
6. then rebuild t2 and get sector access
7. tried to view data in D.E. to see the folder structure but failed
8. Then again wrote SA back to the drive from the original backup along with 190
9. from then showing this garbage

Hopefully this is a practice drive and not a real customer's. It is always best to seek assistance before running destructive commands.

yeah, the above procedure is crazy. Btw, did you check if you got correct data before all the mess happened?

- if drive has encryption tied to MCU and you are using a SATA replacement
- maybe it is not encrypted, simply scrambled due to T2 corruption, or defrag. so you get wrong data in lba0

So happy the killing of data was for practice and not a client case.
