    Question.
    Does it ban your account, or does it ban your console. Or both?

    I'm so new at this. I've never had a Xbox 360 before and I just got one yesterday. It's the Slim, how do I get it modded? What should I do? How do I find out what version it is? I'm so new I don't even know where to start.

    Alright scratch that both of those questions more or less answered after some more searching.

    What powers the connectivity kit though? One of the cables that comes with it to connect it to my computer? Or do I need to buy one of these molex adapters?

    Hi, Great Post Carson!! I didn't read through all 14 pages, But I read through 6-7 of them.. I was wondering if I bought a broken Xbox off ebay, That I would be able to Flash it and the Xbox would be fixed.. Like if it had a HDD problem. Or would I buy a cheap working one? I really want to Flash an Xbox, But I dont want to hurt my Baby :wink:

    Thanks ahead

    I noticed that it comes with something that resembles one of those printer cords. Am I required to have the port so that it may plug into my computer because I do not have one of those ports.

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm about ready to flash my box, cracked it open today and I have the Lite-on DVD drive (DG-16D2s-09C). I want to make sure I have everything I need on my "to get" list, so I appreciate the help if you can let me know if I'm missing anything:
    - Xecuter CK3i
    - Probe 3
    - *** Xecuter 360 USB --- (is this just so I wont have to open up my computer and plug the Lite-On drive in to flash?)
    - Ripping drive: here is a cloudy area, can I use any DVD ROM flashed wiht Kreon (or other) firmware or do I need to buy a Kreaon DVD ROM???
    - Burning drive: another cloudy area... can any DVD +R DL burner be used here?
    - Verbatim +DL disks

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi,
    I have the Lite-on 93450c drive and i was wondering if i could flash my box using my laptop with only the CK3 mini, Probe3 and some USB to SATA adaptor that i have (i don't know what chipset it has)?
    im asking this since in the tutorial it says "LiteOn= Xecuter Connectivity Kit with Probe (No SATA Card)"
    or do i still need the X360USB Pro or anything else that has the VIA VT6421 chipset?
    this is the USB to SATA/PATA adaptor i have:

    Allo,
    I am very new at playing around with the xbox - I was wondering if I needed the probe to recover my key from my dg-16d2s? I do have a x360usb pro v2? Am I able to do it straight from the usb or will I need to probe it to recover the key for the first time?

    Thank you in advance!
