When did I ever say it does? All I said was.

I guess I was just confused my Michael's comment about the terminal connections also working for MRT.

MRT does definitely support Boot ROM code now, although it's nearly impossible to figure out how to use it. Took me an hour yesterday helping someone remotely to just do something PC-3000 takes two seconds to accomplish.

I tried this method to no avail on a 2060-800041-000 REV P1, was unable to enter BOOT ROM mode. I'm not an expert at soldering but pretty sure I soldered the connections right. I notice my PC USB TERMINAL board says 3.3v instead of 5v so maybe that's the issue. Any suggestions? What is a good Windows tool to just monitor the terminal, that could help me debug it.

Case 1: sometimes this also happens to me. For instance, during the imaging a head can become weaker and cannot read anymore if you stop and start.
Try to load FW from head 1 for instance, instead of head 0.

Case 2: Usually I use Toshiba terminal. Try it.

On some passport boards this method doesn't work for me. I have a 800041-000 REV P1 (3TB) in front of me right now. What does work is adding a third connection from the next available pin on the HDD.
