    I'm planning to mod it so I can play backups, but I can only play PAL and region free games...

    anyways, I'm planning to get my disc drive flashed with ixtreme 1.6. Is that good? Anyone here that uses it?

    lol hey popopola :3

    1.6 should be fine, but most people just stick with 1.51 since there might be glitches in 1.6, and many being lazy and see no point or dont know how to upgrade it

    haha hey joe!

    1.51? what is the difference between 1.6 and 1.51 anyways?

    EDIT: ah I see, I'm thinking of flashing it myself... but I'm not so confident haha.

    1.6 added the ability to dump games in a more simple manner than previously occurred other than that nothing special.

    Note though that 1.5 and 1.51 differ in that 1.5 lacks support for wave3 games (long story short the disc layout changed and it caused the error detection of the pre 1.51 firmwares to flag it as a bad disc) which all games from a few months back now use.

    @Joe88 I should probably look for myself but bugs?

    Just make sure before downloading game that it's either region-free or PAL version of the game.

    Even if you got a 360 from Canada, you'd still need to check if it works on NTSC/U so it's nothing special.
