    So, I just got my xbox 360 elite, which is a December 2009 lite-on. And I'm wondering since this pretty much broke up every plan I had (I was expecting a BenQ).

    So I got my eSATA to SATA cable, my computer's chipset is ICH9 and now I have no idea what to do.

    I've been looking around and apparently I either need to solder or buy some probe thing to be able to flash my lite-on.

    I would like if anyone could help me out in knowing what exactly to do since I've already wasted a good amount of money and do not wish to make another error.

    December 2009 will be a 93450c. You need to cut tracks to dump it.

    See here

    That's the most basic way and cheapest way of doing.

    Then there is stuff like the lt switch

    Same deal, still need to cut tracks and solder, just don't have to remove everything and repair traces after you are done (just flick switch to normal mode).

    If that's still too much then you can go along with something like this

    http://team-xecuter.com/ck3-probe-v2/
    (used with the connectivity kit v3)

    Still have to cut the tracks and repair them, but just have to prod the board instead of soldering a switch to it.There's a tutorial for using that here http://team-xecuter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53897 , just to give you an idea of what you do with it.

    Which ever method you go with, you are going to have to cut tracks.

    Thanks for the response, I'm still deciding what to do since I am not very tech-savvy and don't really want to end up messing it all up.
