The cable will only be pulled out slightly. It's unnoticeable until you actually push on it.
I just tried it again, i pushed on the cord and nothing. Sorry bro.
Just buy a warranty from walmart if thats where you got your slim, they'll give you like a paper thing and all you have to do is give them that with the receipt.
so can i do this with a laptop or no?
You can, but you will need the X360USB Pro. They are $60 or so. I have one. If you dont want to spend that, i have a flashing service with BMTH. You can check it out if you want to...
Hello to everyone
I own a xbox 360 slim with a lite on 0225 F/W as i can see in jungle flasher (the label on the drive says F/W 9504 A0A) but JF recognize it as a 0225 F/W)
I was looking around how to flash the lt+ on my drive (as they say is not yet possible in the 0225FW)
First i was trying to dump the key from JF with the DVD32 - slimkey button, without using any ck3 pro or x360usb pro.(i powered the drive from the xbox and connected sata cable with motheboard). I was using the half-tray method to put the drive in vendor mode.
All my efforts were bad as i got Slim Un-lock command returned an error - Unlock failed - Slimkey failed
After 1 day efforts i tried the same precedure on a different pc and this time everything went ok and i got the dummy.bin , identify.bin , serial.bin.
The first problem is that this happened only once in the new pc, when i tried to slim unlock my drive again i got the same -old pc - errors.
As i can understand from a little reading the problem is that i have to put the drive in vendor mode, (MTK flash 32 gives status 0x 51)
Q1: As i was lucky only once i thinking of buying a team xecuter tool. The question is do i need the ck3 pro or x360pro in order to get my drive in vendor mode. ??
Because i had a benq dvd drive from an old broken fat xbox 360 i tried to swap the drive. Through the JF program i use as target the dummy.bin file that i extracted from the slim and as source file the lt+ for the benq- i spoof to target and save the file. I write the saved file to benq drive with dosflash. But when i connect the benq to my xbox slim and insert a backed up game, it only says playing DVD.
Q2: Any help about this.
Thanks in advance
Your first problem starts with, how does the case say 9504 and jungleflasher says 0225? Something doesnt add up. Check the case to make sure first.
Second, you dont do the trey half open for liteons. Make sure it is all the way closed.
Dont buy any tools yet. And if you want more detailed help, explain your problems to the jungleflasher support.
Thanks for your reply
As far concerning to the wrong labelled drive,its something that a lot of people have face up, and its propably an MS fault.
Anyway i can't get it again in vendor mode.
I post it my question in the general forum if someone has face something similar.
Sorry, i can't help you. i have never done an 0225.
Firmware for the 0225 drive isn't released yet...? Also, there have been many cases where drives have been labeled incorrectly, such as the case with you komatianaginei.
few things guys..
I was unable to get the dvd drive to be detected on my pc using just the Xbox to power it. Had to use CK3 lite like some others have posted. Also make sure if you are running win 7 64bit to check out http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/96229-how-to-firmware-mod-your-xbox-360-using-windows-7-64-bit/ for some reason even though I had the "latest" version of jungleflasher I still had to use the steps and get the 64bit unsigned driver.
Aside from that EVErything works great!!!
My only question is, when I start LA Noire for example and its a burned copy, is it normal for your xbox live profile to lose its avatar and all gamescore points? And that will only come back once u sign out and sign back in? If this is normal then ok I was hoping to be able to log achievements though
When I had that problem, I just deleted the profile and recovered it. It works great now. Xbox did come out with their update and they will continue having updates until the 30th. I don't know if that means flagging and banning or just not to have your drive flashed online. Either way I would unflash it get all the updates until the 30th and then wait for C4Eva to release the new fw. I will make another video if it is any different.
dude whats the ck3 thing i need that or can i just use the sata ports on my computer and is it true that we cant play flashed games no more because of that xbox dvd seal plz help im new to this!!
You will not need the ck3, I only bought it because it was easier. You can play flashed games but on the slim you need to buy a replacement PCB. Costing about $60 for a no solder one. Or like $20-$40 for a professional soldering one.
i was wondering if you actually need the ck3 connectivity kit to flash the drive or can you just use the xbox to power it and use the ck3 probe
Try reading through all the pages. The answer is right above your question.
What drive do you have because the CK3 probe is only for the phat xboxes.
I tried doing it on my 0225 without the CK3 lite but coulnt do the power cycle part.
Also not sure if your aware or not but fw 9504 gets updated to 0225 with the newest update, thats why they are labled differntly to JF.
Actually, with the newest dash the 9504 is now 0272. The mislabel was with a lot of 9504. Im not sure why, but it happaned. For the newest dashboard you need to but one of 3 things.
"This version is for dashboard version 2.0.13599.0 – It is based on the latest firmware as updated by the recent dashboard update. The stock firmware version should now be 0272 and the SPI will be locked so you will require an Xecuter Sputnik360 Switch or Xecuter Sputnik360 Probe if you have an MXIC SPI flash or if you have a Winbond flash then you’d have to use the dangerous Kamikaze drill hack if you want to flash your drives. Naturally you can also use the Xecuter DG-16D4S Unlocked PCB and the Xecuter Unlocked Pro Kit also (however, they are now very hard to get hold of). It supports XGD3 originals, but not XGD3 backups. It also supports the new AP2.6 checks however there is no longer any protection against bad/incorrect burns with older patches so MAKE SURE your burns are patched with the latest ABGX. If they are then there is no need to re-burn."
I relised i'd misread the 0272 as 0225 when i read through the JF tut.
Just to summerise what youve put to help me incase ive got my wires crossed somewhere.
0272/0225 MXIC = Xecuter Sputnik360 Switch or Xecuter Sputnik360 Probe
0272/0225 Winbond = Kamikaze drill hack or new unlocked PCB
Correct. Dont do the drill hack, not a great idea. If you have MXIC id go with the the switch beause you only solder. The probe you have to cut traces. Thats just my personal opinion though.
Separate names with a comma.
