    You will need to buy the EXACT SAME hitachi drive. You put your LOGIC BOARD into the one you bought, then reinstall.

    If not, you got the BenQ, you must get the KEY from your hitachi, then flash the BenQ with it. You will be banned from Live.

    Yes, spoofed drives are detectable on the Kinect dashboard. In Addition, depending on the ROM version of the Hitachi, you won't be able to play games that require AP25.

    at the least, Pre 79 Hitachi and all Samsung drives are not effected by AP2.5! I was told ALL hitachi drives are unaffected by Ap2.5 measures. I just bought two banned units, they both play AP2.5 titles with the latest connect dashboards, and one is a Hitachi, the other is a Samsung.

    If you want a QUICK FIX, you must buy the drive you have, and swap the circuit board. That will be the main circuit board where the SATA and 12PIN connectors go into, nothing else.

    Pre v78 drives aren't affected by AP25. The v78/v79 are, that's why LT+ was released for the Hitachis in the first place.
