    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.

    Unless you want to pay huge amounts of shipping, then yes.
    If you don't care about the costs, you can send it to me.

    It'll cost you around 20 USD to send it to me and ~20 USD to send it back.

    I'll get the actual shipping rate from the post office if you're willing to go through with it.

    Well the ~20 USD estimate is for the drive itself, the entire console would prolly be more expensive.

    No prob~

    Im in Europe and I want to use my xbox 360 for playing games while still collecting achievements(dont want to play online, just want to grind some achievements on random games from time to time). How much extra would it cost if I wanted an ODDE install? Also, whats the usual timeframe from you receiving my box to you shipping it out?

    Depends on when I receive the 360.
    It's usually the same day to 24 hours later or when the weekend is in between, I'll ship it on Monday, shipping time is ~1 week ish so you'll have to do without it for ~2 weeks.

    ODDE install for Phatties and Trinity Slims (glossy black) is 100 quid (includes ODDE + setup), shipping it back is maybe 25 quid, it includes tracked and insured shipping in the same box you sent me.
    I'll have to get exact shipping rates first ;p

    Eh, a bit expensive for my current situation, would have to go for a regular flash then I guess. Anyway, I don't have access to my box until summer, so I will hit you up when I get it. Thank you for doing this by the way, really awesome of you.
