    I have alot of friends with lite on drives and they want them flashed. So I have been looking at making or buying a spear to extract the key. I am looking at buying this Maximus spear

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Maximus-Spear-for-X ... %26ps%3D54

    But if I buy what cables are needed, I got two com ports on my computer and is the spear powered my the 360?

    Your link is broken, am I to assume http://cgi.ebay.com/Combo-Maximus-Xtractor...=item56364eabd9 is what you are looking at.

    If so yes it will work, that link includes the probe so be careful when buying things somewhere else as it may not include it.
    The probe is only half of the solution for the liteon 7 series (8 series up to the last few months could use SATA, newly manufactured 360s seem to not yet be flashable), to go with it you will need the xtractor base unit (the liteon probe is an addon).

    Com ports are not necessary once you have one of those devices as you can use USB. You can still use a com port mind and it will save you having to install portio drivers:

    Most people here probably including myself suggest jungleflasher instead of the xtractor software (the only thing that is up there with jungleflasher in my opinion is dosflash), remember to read the error messages fully (the later 7 series liteons did not include all the data, only the key is necessary and that will still dump fine but this lack of data can throw an error).
    A standard USB to miniUSB cable (like the PSP cable) is necessary.
    Power comes from a standard molex adapter (probably what powers a fan in your machine and anything that is not sata or a floppy drive), the whole point of the kit before the spear came along was that it avoids the need to use a 360 to power the drive.

    If you're flashing a lot of drives, it's really worth getting the kit. I got the CK3 Pro the other day and I've now got 10 xbox360s in my room that I'm working through (repairing, x-clamp fixing, and flashing when asked for) and it's really been so useful being able to do it all with such a simple little kit.
