    You can get your drive flashed. but it is a slim console then you need to unlock the disc chip board. Try to google for your slim cosole

    yes slim can also be flashed but first of all you warranty would be void as there is no way to open your slim box without voiding warranty. next you will need to replace PCB (http://www.ck3.co.uk/liteon-dg-16d4s-replacement_pcb.html) and then you can flash your liteon drive ( if you slim has liteon drive).....

    yes you would need to have all tools as i have mentioned above and some way to open your console easily/safely. but if you are drive is benq and not liteon, then you dont need " probe v3".

    if you have reasonable configuration in PC/Laptop then you don't need any card at all. Just buy tools as I have mentioned.

    Does this still work even with the newer Xbox consoles? Also how does one find out which kind of port their laptop has? I know these are probably retarded questions....

    Ok, so I bought a drive off ebay before knowing there were secret keys that match the xbox360 motherboard. Now my question is, I seen were people are buying the pcmia to perform the flash. However, I have an express card slot,, BUT, I also have a sata slot/socket. Does this mean I only need the sata wire that will connect to my sata port then connect to the drive Im wanting to flash with jungleflasher?

    Phillips & BenQ = original drive
    Toshiba/samsung = Replacement

    I cant do the JTAG, do to my dashboard being higher then the version allowed, and having the xenon M-board that HAS been connected to live after july of 2009. I dont know if that of any relevance, but I did read that the JTAG wont work if your dashboard version is above 7xxx or higher then 4 digits, mine is 5 digits, something like 2.0.15574.0 or another. I will check back frequently. My problem is that dvd's work, bujt the games wont load. I get a message saying. To play disc put it in a xbox 360. THANK YOU, in advance

    For people who do not have external sata ports on their laptops, you can go on ebay and search "usb to sata" or even "usb to sata or esata" < This option just has an esata port and a regular sata port, but they seem to be less expensive than one sata port alone for a reason I cannot see.

    EDIT: I found this as an example http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-To-Sata...967?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a193149b7


    EDIT 2: Do not do this, it will most likely not work.
