    I wanted to buy some second hand xbox 360 games which are not stealth and thus my drive will not read them, I think I have two choices here:

    A- Downgrading to a non-Ixtreme firmware such as old Xtreme ones, and how bad is being at non-Ixtreme firmware (since I dont use live)


    B- Do you recommend upgrading to iXtreme 12x (which reads non-iXtreme discs and seems to be available only on 12x).
    what are consequences of having my drive at 12x (which is currently at 8x)

    Which one do you recommend.
