1233Re: turned my ls into a kurobrick
- Feb 1, 2005Hi Juan, and thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately, things are not so cheery for me. My hard drive is just
fine; I'm having problems with the flash (i.e., before my hard drive
even gets looked at, the system bonks out).
Right now I'm considering building a flash reader/programmer and
re-programming my flash using an image read off of a friend's LS120.
