So I've got an adapter ordered, but it's currently backlogged. Have you guys ever seen someone use a Raspberry Pi to unlock an xbox HDD? I'm thinking something like this: https://github.com/manawyrm/pata-gpio. The write speeds appear to be atrocious (0.5 MB/s for that implementation), but it might be suitable for my very niche use case.

So this adapter (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004E ... UTF8&psc=1) only locks drives, but throws the following error message when attempting to unlock them. When I plug in my original xbox drive it doesn't show up in Beta4, even in safe mode, but does show up in Windows. Locking the drive, but being unable to unlock the drive is a *very* unfortunate failure mode. For my Google brethren, here's the searchable name of the adapter: "CoolGear SATA and IDE Hard Drive & Optical Drive USB Adapter Kit Combo"

Code: Select all
