    Yeah, I know if I start getting a lot of requests I'll probably start buying the official equipment, and things like that, but as for right now until I get a little more experience I'll probably hold off a little while before I start investing. Thanks!

    If you can get ahold of a X360 USB Pro v2 then you're all set.
    You can also use that kit to backup 360 games to your PC as well c:

    Edit:
    Almost forgot.
    If it's a Liteon drive, then you'll need a probe 3 as well.
    But I think already have one or at least knew it ;p

    Yes, I knew that, but didn't use it, I have a Lite-On, but you actually don't need a probe to flash a Lite-on although you do need another molex cable, but that is only a few dollars.

    You will need it for extracting keys.

    Actually no you don't I almost did buy it then did a little more research, and figured out you don't need the probe just a small tipped screwdriver, although yes it is more professional to use the probe, it is possible to get a successful flash without it, at least for a phatty lite-on.

    Flashing isn't needed indeed.
    However key retrieval does require the probe.

    The method you'd describe comes in the neighborhood of a homebrewed version of the Probe 3.
    The probe 3 is just a retail Pogo Mo Thoin.

    Ohh... I honestly don't know I pretty much jury-rigged my molex cable with a flipswitch, and used a grounded screwdriver as a probe, and by golly it worked, although I wouldn't recommend doing it. It is a lot safer just to by a probe and USB360

    Yeh that's the non capacitor PMT method ;p
    It works, but it's quicker to get a probe.

    I can strip an entire phatty from it's casing and pull out the DVD drive in like 3 minutes.
    Flashing takes another 2 minutes and reassembly takes what. 2/3 minutes?

    It's because I got dedicated equipment to flash the stuff that I'm incredibly quickly with it ;p
    Back in the old MRT days, It took me 30 min/45 min sometimes an hour to solder the Liteon/dump keys/flash/desolder/resolder the traces and reassemble the entire unit.
    And that's also with dedicated flashing gear.

    I never bothered with those kludge methods of using the Xbox power source as a power and splicing DVD cables and a dodgy motherboard that needs booting etc.
    It might also fail and then you'd need DOSFlash and what not.
    Far more time efficient to just get the proper gear I thought.
    And also quicker to flash drives for me mates.
    And since a while, flash/extract keys, European wide.
