I didn't loss anything, it went back to it were before BSY error (and I almost had a heart attack!).
This is a direct guide for BSY error, for details and more, check the 1st msg on this topic.
I received the stuff at 14:30h today as you can see here:
The one circled in red isn't necessary at all. In fact, is so tiny to connect those pins on Seagate, I was forced to give up on those plastics.
Here is the kit fully assembled it took me 20min, mounting those cables is really a pain:
With HDD connected (note I giving up on plastic connectores [circled in red on 1st photo):
The whole stuff complete to fire up:
And on this photo (above) is the TRICK here, see that little paper card (CR2032) ?
Yes! Just unscrew those around, and put a paper card or something to isolate the area (is the spin motor) like plastic, don't use anything that is an electric-conductor, after that you can turn ON everything.
You can work with just 1 screw, like on this photo (square in red):
On terminal you'll see nothing, just press CTRL+Z. And you'll get F3 T> prompt.
With PCB disconnected from HDA with a paper card (or similar), you'll see:
On terminal press CTRL+Z:
Spin Down Complete
Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs
Wait 5sec and remove the paper card, this will connect the PCB to HDA (spin motor), but since is in Spin Down state (from cmd), you'll feel nothing.
Now screw just enough to make a good contact between PCB and HDA (be real careful here, don't drop the screw, just be calm, relax!).
Then press CTRL+Z again:
Spin Up Complete
Elapsed Time 7.457 secs (if you get this msg you did everything fine until here)
F3 T> <<< At this step you'll need to POWER OFF your HD for 10sec, and then POWER ON again. By power off, remove the SATA power (not PCB!).
When done, press CTRL+Z.
F3 T>m0,2,2,,,,,22 <<< This command takes a little over a minute to complete!

You did it! Congratulations!
Just turn off everything, and put your HDD on your lovely PC.
Keep in mind TX and RX from Seagate are exactly like that, but on Seagate side.
Connect it this way:
PC (TX) > RX on Seagate
PC (RX) > TX on Seagate
The wires was inverted to me and I didn't get nothing, so I just reverted and finally got a terminal answer.
