    I need to have my "fat" 360 flashed to the latest firmware (Lt+2.0) but lack the knowledge and tools to do so. It has been flashed previously but I want to be able to play my XDG3 games. Are there any extremely noob friendly tutorials I can follow? Or can someone talk me through it? Is there anyone in West Sussex, UK (the nearer to Crawley the better) who can do it for me? I don't mind paying a little bit.

    I've also heard that you can use specialist USB's to flash an Xbox.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the link, I've already looked at the Jungle Flasher tutorial but I still don't get the whole SATA/USB thing, as it's not mentioned in great detail.

    I've just done mine, so while it's fresh in my mind here's how i did it:

    get a copy of the lite on stock firmware (there's about 7 versions but any of them will do)
    get a copy of the new LTplus2 firmware
    get a copy of your 360 drive's firmware (or at least the drive key)

    using jungleflasher under the "firmware tool 32" tab load up your 360's drive firmware (as the source) and then load up the stock firmware in the target and 'spoof source to target' this inserts your drive key into the firmware making it usable on your 360, name the new file something like 'custom stock.bin'. Repeat for the LTplus2 firmware and call it some like 'custom LT2.bin'.

    next we need to flash your 360 with the stock firmware (the newest dash update checks your 360's firmware during installation and will error if it doesn't see a stock firmware)

    Most people use jungleflasher to write the firmware but i personally have always used dosflash32...

    run dosflash32 as admin - note if you get a "can't install portio.sys driver" error... open a command prompt and enter the following "bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS"
    Press enter and reboot the PC and try again

    open up your 360 ensure a video cable is plugged in and power it up

    swap the 360's DVD sata cable with one connected to your pc's to find out which drive port it's on. NOTE you'll only get basic info on the read (you can't dump the firmware without extra tools, don't worry this is normal). The drive is such that writing to it is easier than reading from it.

    get the 360's drive in vendor mode - open it, pull out DVD power cable, half close the tray, reattach power.

    restart dosflash32

    do liteon erase

    write the liteon 'custom stock' firmware

    Next you need to update your 360's dash - i personally downloaded the update and stuck it on a micro SD card and attached a reader to the 360. The 360 will update and flash a new firmware into your DVD drive.

    Next we need to rewrite the firmware again, this time with 'custom LT2'

    open up your 360 ensure a video cable is plugged in and power it up

    swap the 360's DVD sata cable with one connected to your pc's to find out which drive port it's on.

    get the 360's drive in vendor mode - open it, pull out DVD power cable, half close the tray, reattach power.

    restart dosflash32

    do liteon erase

    write the liteon 'custom LT2' firmware

    test a game

    hope that helps :-)

    PS thanks to Fast, wouldn't have been able to do this stuff without him spoon feeding this kind of info
