    So.
    I'm getting a "broken" 360 tomorrow.

    The guy who was willing to sell it to me told me that it has the "Open tray" error.
    He also told me that the box never suffered overheating etc.
    He always kept it in an open space.

    I'm planning on fixing the drive so that I can use the 360 myself.


    So my question to you all!

    Should I fix the box and hardware hack it.
    Playing homebrew games etc.

    or

    Fix the box.
    Keeping it stock and using it as my main Live box and hardware hack my other 360 (wich is a flashed box)

    I'd fix it and keep it as stock and hardware hack the other one since you have its dvd drive flashed already.

    Dreamland.
    I'd go with stock as well. It's good to have one for backups and one for live.

    If it is jtag able I would jtag it rather than updating the dashboard. Probably unlike tho.

    If not I'd keep it stock also.

    I can put a glitch chip in both of them so it won't really matter which one gets hardware hacked ;p

    My flashed box is an 360 Elite.
    The broken one is probably a 360 Pro box (based upon the 60 gig hard drive)

    Anyway I'll get the 360 in an hour or 6ish......

    Right.

    I've got the 360.
    It has a Falcon mobo as I suspected.

    If I can't fix the Open Tray error without replacing it with an other DVD drive I'll hardware hack this one.
