Hi,[quote=zerocool_;2065401]I just downloadad SB04 firmware from samsungodd.com
somehow inside the file there is sb07 firmware for S182d.[/quote]I can confirm that. For some reason, they lost overview and published 182D firmware as 203 on samsungodd.com/eng
The download from the [I]korean [/I]location (samsungodd.com/kor) was good. At least when I checked recently.
I didn;t notice that and forceflashed it.
This wasn’t a good idea at all. Don’t ignore the warnings unless you know what you’re doing.
the drive is now showing a constant green light and firmware revision shows as Boot. no matter how many times I flash it it’s still the same. The green light even flashes while writing firmware, is there anything I can do to revive it.
If the drive shows as Boot, then it isn’t finally dead. Have you tried forceflashing original 203B firmware?
Depending on your Sata controller, you might also try flashing under real DOS. Instructions are given in the [B]Read First[/B] about flashing Samsung ODD firmware.
Additionally, I would contact Samsung support. Don’t expect them to replace your drive since you did override the hardware check built in the flasher.
