Default Confused over programs to use - 12-21-2010, 06:23 PM

I'm confused over which programs to use to flash my BIOS and to fix a "bricked" MINI 9. I have

- FlashBIOSv1.5.1.exe to program a UFD to update my BIOS.

- crdisk-A05 to program a UFD to fix a bricked MINI 9.

Am I using the correct/latest programs for my MINI 9 Windows system?

I think I have read most of the relevant posts. I am now at A05 BIOS so I don't think that FlashBIOS (by somms) is an issue. My problem is that there seems to be different program names/versions for the fix brick program.

I am just trying to verify which is the latest program to fix a bricked MINI 9 Windows system using a UFD.
