, Indeed, Slow Responding Fix is not recommended to apply for SpyGlass and Palmer drives because of new 02 module structure.
ACELab developers are working on it.
But, the new version allows to get SA access, edit head map in RAM, build head map in DE, it's a very useful features, isn't it?
In Reality While Working On Palmer And Charger These Are My Observations .
1 : If Drive Has Bad Sectors " Converstion To SATA Or Shifting ROM To a SATA Board " Locked MCU/Unlocked MCU Is All What It Takes For a Complete Data Recovery ,Absolutely No Need For Headmap
2 : If The Drive is Clicking And Headswap is done and after that it Works Then I Would Say You Can Use Same Method As Statement 1 , Headmap Again Is Not a Issue
3 : If The Drive is Slow Responding And You Did a Headswap And Even After That Same Condition ,Then No Point In Working On Drive Locked/Unlocked PCB Does Not Matter
Unlocked PCB Usage
1 : Getting a Kick That You Now Have Access To Firmware
2 : Headmap Creation Were You See One Platter/Head Degradation And You Wanna Clone Your Drive " or Multiple Places of Platter Degradation " , But The Issue is That Such a Drive Enters Slow Responding Stage And Then Solution is PITA Then
PS : So Unless There is No Solution For Palmer/Charger Slow Responding ,Unlocked PCB Or Locked PCB Does Not Make a Difference ,I Get One Of The Most Worst Cases In North Of India FRom Entire India Plus People Abroad ,I Am Yet To See a Case Were Unlocked PCB Would Be Worth It ,So Please Try And Get a Solution To Solve This in Palmer / Charger Issue ,I Was Told Acelab Utility Can Do Slow Fix In RAM But If Developer Is Not Sure Of The Structure Of Mod 02 How Will They Do This in RAM So According To Me It Was a Story Released By Someone Thats Wrong Atleast Till Today .I Would Appreciate If We Can Know The Development / Progress In Western Digital Palmer , Charger , Pebbleb And Spyglass And Anticipated Road map of solution release ,I would be happy to share my experience if any of you guys need
