    I have a slim Xbox 360 (the MW3 edition one) as well as the gear needed to flash all xboxes. My plan was to buy a preowned xbox 360 and use that to flash, but looking at the prices for xboxes and a large hard drive, I don't think I can really afford it.

    So can I flash my slim 360 and still use it online to play things like Halo 3?

    Yes, and yes. Just be wary of playing games before their intended release date. If M$ finds you online it'll be a potential ban. It's recommended to play those games offline, on a different profile until release.

    Oh yes, play games with different profile! I didn't think of that. Thanks guys. I'll disable automatic updates and flash my slim.

    Don't play pre-release games.
    Just don't.

    Also, patch EVERY backup with ABGX and do go on XBL and spread around that your 360 is hacked.
    Just stay low and keep alert for updates.
