Bad/blown ROM chip on HTS545050B9A300 drive...

I asked them and they couldn't locate one. Seems like after they started doing data recovery, they are much less helpful than before. Thanks for checking Jared.

Move Module 01 Location

I always thought 01 couldn't be moved. Did you successfully move it? If so, can you explain how?
