    sata cable, via onboard 6421 sata controller (sata port) or sperate pci controller card. ck3 probe, 360 opening tool, flash any size flash disk (if you decides to use iprep) torx 8 screwdriver, jungleflasher software. not sure of the prices in the usa. umm cant think of anything else

    15 bucks for the pci card and the sata cable, screwdriver prob $2 might have it lying around, disc, use some old one lying around, so prob $20 (the shipping from the card)

    you will need a via 6421 pci to sata card, which runs for about ($15)
    you will need something to extract lite-on keys, like a ck3 ($60)
    you will need a torx screwdriver set ($15)
    you will need sata cables ($2)

    which adds up to: $92

    the pci card comes with the sata cable, and i never heard of the lite on keys, i have a samsung, i guess it depends on which drive you have (i didnt flash mine yet, my pci card blew out on me)

    yes a lite0on is a certain drive. you wont need the ck3 if you wont be flashing lite-ons. the way you worded your first post it sounded like you would start a flashing service, so i thouhgt i would tell you everything you needed for that.

    Well you can do all that everyone else stated or try out the Xecuter xDrive 360
    and not mod your own drive:smile::thumbup:
    seems easier and less of a pain.

    right but it seems like you still need to flash that external drive all the time with standard flashing methods
    well if you want to start a good one just buy the ck3 with probe. it gets kinda frustrating to have to flash 300 lite-ons without a probe.
