    Hopefully someone can help me out with a question, my 360 is LT flashed BUT I don't have the drive keys to reflash to the newest version...

    Now - I know it's not easy to recover these keys now without a mod beyond my abilities.... BUT what happens if I update my dashboard to the new version which as I understand will overwrite the LT firmware. If I am then essentially back to stock, does this make it easier for me to re extract the keys to then get the newest CFW?

    Or am I still screwed?

    DO NOT UPDATE.

    Since your drive is hacked just dump the keys with the latest Jungleflasher.
    When you have a dump of your keys store it somewhere (make 3 backup copies)
    Then flash it to stock with the provided firmware file for your drive.
    Update it via USB.
    Flash it back to LT 2.0.
    Reassemble your 360.
    Boot it up and enjoy XBLive and your pirated/backup games.

    Thanks - so the latest Jungleflasher can dump my keys - again? This must be new as I thought the method involved cutting traces etc, as per below...

    Thanks for any help. Also - out of interest, what would happen if I did update? been thinking about going legit anyway, presumably my 360 would still work ok (though maybe banned?)

    Cheers again.

    MRA isn't needed.
    Not entirely sure but you do need to use a Pogo mo Thoin. (kind of homebrewed probe)
    (Haven't dumped 360 drive keys in a long time so my memory on that is a bit vague ;p)

    If you where to update from XBLive you risk getting flagged for a hacked firmware wich leads to a future ban.
    Same goes for USB updating.

    It's always better to flash back to stock before updating.
    Better safe then sorry.

    If you prefer instead you can do the glitch mod to grab the CPU keys and extract the DVD keys from that. The glitch attack is pretty good and now has a hacked dash bringing it into line with JTAG (give or take).

    Depending on what drive you have extracting your key isn't too hard. Phat liteons will need a probe to extract the key, but all other drives are straight forward.
