What is POGO MO THOIN Probe?

The previous probe requires you to cut the pcb in order to obtain the key, especially 8 and 9 series dvd drive.

Thanks to POGO MO THOIN probe, the latest addition to the probe family, with this tool, you no longer require to cut or solder on your PCB, which makes everyone can do this at home!

So, let me show you how to use this little tool to extract the key.


As always, before you disassemble your console, you better make sure you have all the tools ready:

  1. A PC with SATA port (a USB to SATA won't work). If your don't have SATA port on your PC, check our store at http://www.diygadget.com for PCI to SATA card or PCMCIA SATA card.
  2. Of course your console
  3. The POGO MO THOIN (PMT) Probe and CK3
  4. Jungle Flasher 1.79 or later

That's all!

Connect POGO MO THOIN Probe with TIAO DVD Adapter

We need to supply the power to the PMT probe, so, use the bundled alligator clip wire to make the connections.

Use the black alligator clip wire to connect the GND pad on the TIAO DVD adapter to the GND pad on the PMT probe Use the red alligator clip wire to connect the 3.3V pad on the TIAO DVD adapter to the J1 pad on the other side of the PMT probe PCB.

Connect the DVD drive to your PC

Make sure your PC is turned off, and DVD adapter's power switch is OFF.

Carefully check the above connections, make sure no short circuit (RED alligator should NOT touch BLACK alligator), otherwise you may kill your DVD adapter!

Connect the DVD adapter to your dvd drive via the supplied DVD power cable, connect the PC's Molex adapter to DVD adapter's Molex connector, and connect the DVD driver to your SATA port.

Connect all parts together

Then carefully check all connections, if you are 100% sure, then continue to next step.

Turn on PC and launch Jungle Flasher

Turn on your PC. Then turn on the DVD power adapter by sliding the power switch to ON position. If the connections are good, the BLUE LED on the PMT probe will be turned on, indicating DVD 3 adapter is charging the PMT probe. Let it charge the PMT probe for a few minutes.

Click DVDKey32 tab, select the correct SATA port and click on the button next to SATA address to detect your device. Your dvd drive should be detected by JF, if not, check your connection and make sure the port is correct.

Once your DVD drive is identified, click on PhatKey button as indicated in the above picture, you will see this dialog:
