    I don't think it matters anymore. A new iXtreme firmware came out and I think it's available for use to ANY drive...

    thanks for the replies
    i believe the new ixtreme does not work for hitachi 1.5 or something.

    another question, is there any soldering required to flash the drives?

    I think you should get either Wii or PS3.. 360 sucks to my opinion. I only like two games for 360 are Banjo Kazooie and Ninja Gaiden 2 but many games are rather bored.

    Check this sticky for all info you need on flashing!

    And no, no hard modifications like soldering required to flash!

    Does it matter? You won't get a hitachi

    Even with all the bullshit with RROD and stuff (which I have gotten) 360 is still the best console out there by miles in my opinion!

    Banjo Kazooie and NG2 are great but there are at least 10 other great XB360 titles like Fable 2, Fallout 3, Assasins Creed, Bioshock, and Left 4 Dead.
