Hi Guys

I have this drive here, already messed up by the client as you can see in the photos.
After swaping PCB, reading ROM and writing into donor PCB, the only thing I get is this:
No Spins, only busy.

LOG:

Bridge PLL Enable Failed
Bridge PLL Enable Failed
Bridge PLL Enable Failed
Bridge PLL Enable Failed
ERROR: Flash Led 9C08 - ALF Hardware Initialization Process Failed
Flash HW Init Attempts = 0004

Clump Parametrics:
Clump = DE90
DataType =

Dead case???

Are you sure you are dealing with the native ROM. Check the serial number stored in it to confirm that before wasting too much time on it.

Yeah the serial is inside the ROM.

It's a SSHD.

Hi,
Any Change In The New PCB After a ROM Swap Or Same ?,Mostly The Flash IS Where the focus should be ,If you have same drive same firmware etc you can do a secure erase in the donor then that pcb's flash gets empty too and a board swap works otherwise it does not ,PC3K has also added some support in new version do not know how good bad it is

Amarbir, I think this is the most useful thing you've posted on here yet :D . I've yet to need to replace a failed PCB on a Seagate SSHD, and I keep hearing people on forums suggest "erasing the NAND", but you're the first person to actually describe how it's done. Kudos, and thanks!
