    Just wondering if the firmware on the console matters when flashing the drive or if it will work on any firmware, mine hasn't been updated in ages so I hope it's ok lol

    Yes.

    13146 reflashes your DVD drive to a new firmware so you'll have to update past that.
    However I recommend waiting since 14717 updates the bootloaders, preventing the RGH.

    If you ever want a "jTAG" 360 you should wait with updating to 14717.
    Other then that you can download the 14699 update and update your console to that and flashing your DVD Drive to LT+ 3.0.
