SAMSUNG SE-S084F (Stuck in BOOT mode)

#1

I flashed this firmware http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=49908 (last post) using Tsdnwin.exe.

Restarted my computer but the drive remains in ‘BOOT’ mode and the green light remains on.

I’ve tried reflashing it again and restarting and it’s still the same.

Any ideas how to revive this?

It is detected in Windows at least.

Do a full shut down (not just a restart) and see if that helps. If it doesn’t then try downloading the original TB00 from Samsung and flash it to your drive. Maybe there’s something wrong with the patched file…

EDIT: Having had a quick look at the TS and TB firmwares, I think they are for different drives (i.e. Samsung might have used different drives in the enclosure for the two revisions), so it doesn’t look like the TS and TB firmwares are interchangeable.

SUCCESS!!! IT WORKS!!! ONLY TB00 WORKS WITH MY DRIVE! THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR!

Any region free firmware sir?

Great! I’m glad that you’ve managed to revive it.

Its a pity that the two TB and TS revisions are incompatible with each other and as such you can’t make use of the existing TS01 RPC1 patch …

Perhaps MCSE can do some magic?
