I had a look and couldn't find the dump of the Q firmware/drive RAM, so someone will need to make a fresh copy, perhaps I will.

Ahhh okay then, that's a shame you couldn't find one, but all is not loss since you'll make a fresh copy.

How is it done anyway? Is it inherently difficult??

I was thinking the same thing, but I was thinking 1 week. Between Emu's and your posts though I think they know better now. I'll take that bet.

I do apologize if I did seem like a bit of an eager beaver, but I was just curious and somewhat excited for this happening.

I also thought it was something that wouldn't take long but I wasn't aware that his machine was in storage, had I known this I would've been more understanding.

Hi again guys, how are you all doing?

If you dont mind me this time round for asking, have you had any luck emu_kidid with the dumping? Or managed getting it out of storage perhaps? :D

Neither yet, Streetwalker is adding dumping support to Swiss and by the time that's done I'll get my Q out of storage.

Ahhh okay then, I know it's just been a week since then, have you had any luck with Streetwalker by any chance? And I do find that interesting, what is this project you two are doing by any chance?? :)

Oh, I've just been adding some features to Swiss, though it's emu's project, not mine. I'm pretty lazy these days so still nothing with regard to dumping the drive, sorry.

If you just want something to dump the IPL to SDGecko, the patch I provided should work (quickly and poorly written, intended only for one-time use; I'm sure Streetwalker could do this in a better manner).
Here's the issue tracker with the patch:
https://code.google.com/p/swiss-gc/issues/detail?id=121
Here's a link to a post with a pre-built copy I've linked to before:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=1375&p=28813#p28813

EDIT: It looks like Streetwalker has been checking in a better version.
EDIT2: Just reread. You need the drive firmware dumped, not the IPL. Ignore this post.

Yeah I already have the IPL dumper implemented, but not the DVD drive.

No thanks, I really want to see the XenoGC chip working on the Panasonic Q, and I'm waiting for the firmware to be dumped, unless I can be instructed on how to do so??

Most likely It won't work because A. No one cares about the Q and B. It's really rare
So if you want the Qoob works and it's a really good deal so let me know

Give it up Andre, he doesn't want to pay. Instead he wants us to do the hard work for free. Work for free takes time. A lot of time.

Thing is, you're grossly underestimating the "niche audience" part.
Almost anyone serious about Panasonic Q has the money and fandom status to want something with more features than a mere XenoGC.

Well to be honest I wasn't making nothing on the sale I would lose 30. But its used so he seemed like he was in a rush for homebrew on the Q which as of this moment IPL replacements are the only way. Sorry if I seemed like a salesman I was going to keep it.
