So I need to make an LPT cable, I only have one 100 ohm resistor and a bunch of 150 ohm resistors, the diagram I have says that the resistors are only for protection and don't need to be there, will using the 150 ohm resistors work?

Maybe longer. Depends on his computer.
Don't need to read the nand, I just need to maybe re-flash xell and freeboot. will it still take 2-3 days? also do you know the answer to my original question? will 150 ohms resistors be ok to use? thanks.

you can try the 100ohm resistors but if it cant detect the xbox you will need to get 100ohm resistors. and good luck with dumping 512mb through lpt 1mb take 2.1875 mins so 512 mb will take roughly 1120 mins (18hours 40mins) and you have got to get identical dumps and the same to write, so yes it will take you quite a few days to get a good dump.

Good luck
