    I'm sorry if there's already an answers for this somewhere around here but still here I go:

    I'm planing to get rid of my PS3 in favor of a 360 but I don't know anything about it... So if I buy a used 360slim do I have to look out for anything special to ensure that it is moddable?

    I would appreciate any help, since as I said I don't know anything about the 360-scene and everything I read so far was very confusing!

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    In short.

    If you want to Reset Glitch it (being able to play backups from the HDD + playing homebrew etc) then you CANNOT acess XBLive.

    If you want to flash your DVD drive (being able to play backups from DVD only) then you can acess XBLive.

    A Slim 360 requires their drives to be unlocked.
    So you'll have to do the Kamikaze hack or the Sputnik 360 on the drive.

    At the moment only Liteon drives can be flashed from 360's Slim.

    So I have to find a 360s with a Liteon Drive and I'm good to go. Do you know any way to find out if a 360s has such a drive!

    Partly true, not all Liteon Drives can be flashed (yet). Liteon drives for the Phats (AKA Liteon Model Number DG-16D2S), came with a asortment of firmware versions 74850C, 83850Cv1,83850Cv2, 93450C, all of which can be easly flashed. Then M$ came out with a dashboard update (dash 13146) that took all those drives and reflashed them to firmware version 02510, of which is the latest Original FW for the phats, (and is still flashable).


    Then M$ changed drives when they released the Slims . The Slim Liteon Drives come in different models (please take note I said models not firmware). The first model was the DG-16D4S this came in firmware versions 9504, 0225, 0401, and 1071. M$ again released a dashboard update to address the 9504 firmware (dash 13146) that took the 9504 firmware to version 0272. Them M$ released another dashboard update (dash 13599), this dash "locked" the drives, which requires one of the unlock methods that was described above. I might also add that buing a new PBC is also a methoid that is used to unlock.

    The other liteon model for the slim, and I might add the newest; is the DG-16D5S, this has firmware version 1175, and at current time is not flashable.

    A good website to start your journey is C4eva speaks.com, it will list all the drives and the most current CFW for your drive. Another website that is very good is team-xecuter.com, they have very strict fourm rules so read through everything prior to posting, but you can read through all the tuts without starting a membership. Also cruse over to jungleflasher.net and take a look as well.

    Happy Flashing Sir!

    Having said this, you run the risk of being caught and banned. If this happens, your xbox will NEVER be allowed on xboxlive again, and you will have to buy a new one if you wish to play online.

    There are ways to stay safe(-ish) from this fate, and as previously said c4evaspeaks.com etc are the best places for info on that!)

    Don't think that flashing your drive is a one-off-deal though...... be prepared to do it every time M$ come up with some new fangled antipiracy checks etc.

    Get a 360 Phat (old 120 GB model Elite from 2009/2010)
    Then it will be 100% flashable.


    Iirc c4eva was working on it....
