How to manually open your Xbox 360 DVD Drive

The halfway open tray method is used in flashing tutorials when entering vendor mode. Requires the tray to be halfway open with a drive status of closed. This is how to open it halfway and keep the closed drive status.


The Red box shows the part you will be pushing.
The Red arrow show which way to push it.

I bought a 5 broken 360's for $100. Was an incredible deal so i had to take it. Repairing them all. Then in the next week or so is when i will start selling them.

Eclipse,

If you have a second, could you check out this link? It turns out that I have a lite-on dvd drive, and I need to purchase more parts. Would this work? In a previous post, you said that this would work? Are these 2 the same, but $15 bucks cheaper? If I can save some money, it'd be helpful. Unemployment sucks.

Thanks,
-Kyle

Yes, they will both work with flashing your lite-on. You can buy either one of them.

If I just have the pcb board is that okay? since the drive needs to be half opened and I have nothing to connect it to.. can I still dump the key from it?

That's Insane You Want To Tell Me Who You Bought The Xbox's From? Who Has Just 5 Broken Xbox's Laying Around Though. Seriously!

Nice tutorial but when do you have to do it manually?
