    If anyone can help and give me a process order to flash my dvd drive and mod my xbox I can research the parts I need to do my self.

    I have a

    slim Trinity xbox
    Philips & liteon DG-16D4S, FW: 0225, HW:A0A0
    Dashboard: not sure till I get home, probably 2 or 3 from the current one, has tiles.

    Slim proto v2 chip
    Slim post QSB v3
    Team xecuter replacement pcb v1.1 for the dvd drive,

    NANDX rgh edition
    X360usb pro v2

    And some other stuff I'm getting together to mod a different xbox if this one goes OK.

    I've read to get my drive key? From the dvd drive I must RGH my xbox, so would this be the order I take... Bare in mind the slim proto 2 comes pre flashed so I won't need NANDX or Jr runner 2.

    - Open up the xbox.
    - Fit the mod chip.
    - Extract the drive key for the dvd drive.
    - Swap out the drives pcb with the team executer one and flash my drive key back into it.
    - install custom dash etc...

    I understand with the cr4xl I have coming for the 2nd xbox will have to be programmed with my nandx, also do you have to make a Nand backup or anything like I would a 3ds?

    Any pointers would really help out.
    I work in the electronics industry so soldering and rework isn't a problem.

    My goal is to play my backups from an internal or external hard drive and have a custom dash, this will be for offline only.

    Thanks.

    flashing drives isn't needed for RGH, unless you want to play from backupped discs.
    I also advice to upgrade the internal HDD, it's quicker then external.

    You indeed need a CR4 XL and a NAND-X to hack it.
    The fake POST_OUT from TX is needed if yer 360 is a Corona.

    First thing you'll need to do is dump the NAND.
    Inject the XeLL NAND made by JRunner.
    Then install the CR4 and fake POST_OUT.
    Boot it, obtain the CPU key.
    Make a hacked NAND and flash it back.

    Then you can follow me tut on installing FSD

    Thanks, why wouldn't a slim proto 2 be suitable?

    Old chip.
    TX stopped supporting and developing it in favor for the CR4.

    Good luck with it, using JRunner and some install diagrams from the TX site, it's pretty easy to do.

    Have you written XeLL to yer NAND?
    It's required before obtaining the CPU key to decrypt the NAND and build a hacked one.

    Figured it out already, good job!

    I'd highly suggest yanking up the fan, 70c for the CPU is hot.

    That's what i was about to say, CPU is way too hot, as well as GPU, its too hot as well. Those should never be that high at idle

    75% ish.
    Try to keep the temps at least below the 60's
    It be a bit noisier but yer console will last longer.
    Even tho Slims (and Falcons/Jaspers) don't RROD as much, it still is a wise idea.
