2060-771737-000 rev A
I had a Helios in, which used a 512KB ROM. Most of these use 256KB ROM, as do the SATA equivalent PCB. Consequently, I decided to transplant the chip as I could not find any matching boards with a 512KB ROM to write via COM port. I found that using the 2060-771692-005 rev A resulted in no spin up and the HDD just entering BSY. I thought it was bad soldering at first, but I tried on a couple of different boards and got the same result.
Then I thought perhaps only the 2060-771692-006 Rev P1 support 512KB ROM. This was correct and the with ROM transplant the HDD spins up normally to RDY.

Luke did some testing and found PCBs from 3Tb and 4Tb ones with the exact same PCB number right down to the REV and they still weren't cross-compatible with each other. So there seem to be some inconsistencies with their manufacturing and numbering. If you get one from a 4Tb it'll work for a 3Tb, I believe, but not the opposite way.
I do know that the -002 board works for the 4Tb ones though.
