    You can always change out the DVD drive (it's not a CD player) for a new one.

    Or you could install an Xkey (which is more expensive but it does takes advantage of an external HDD.


    Anyway you'll need to dump your DVD keys so you'll need an X360 USBPro v2 and Jungleflasher to do that.
    Flash the DVD keys back to the new DVD drive (or place them on the microSD of the Xkey) and reassemble everything.

    You can also Reset Glitch Hack the console, to boot unsigned software and boot without a dvd drive attached

    You don't need the x360 USBPro unless you only have a laptop to work with. If you have a desktop with SATA, you can just run a cable from 360 drive to PC and use 360 as power. This will allow you to get your drive key and either A) replace the drive with a working drive, patching in hacked firmware and your old drive key, or B) like stated above use the drive key with the Xkey.

    You are right, he can't unless he has the CPU key, which i doesn't expect

    Only possible with the DGX for Phat which isn't released right now.
    If it was released, he'll lose XBLive access if he kept it in RGH mode.

    That's only valid for Phatty boxes atm.

    DGX 1.0 for Phat is coming soon.

    That's not recommended.
    A lot of things can go wrong, and if they do go wrong they go wrong badly.

    Best is to just fork out some cash.
