You can , but you have to change over the drive key and spoof the drive. Unless they are the same drives , then you can just switch the pcb if you want.
Although the one that can't read games , why not?. Does it not read any discs? or just games?. As if it's just games it can't read , then there is a high chance some one screwed up trying to flash it and lost the drive key , in which case , it's a useless console , so don't buy it.
How do I spoof the drive?
I'll ask him if it can't read anything or just games.
Firmware toolbox has a drive spoof option. Load firmware , then you can pick a drive to spoof as. There's a few tutorials around as well that will cover in more detail , but can't remember where so you'll have to search.
I know you're gonna ask , but I'd really be careful of the one that can't read games. Selling it off for $50 makes no sense to me unless the drive key was lost and they're just trying to make quick money. As a laser for a 360 drive is cheap and even if the whole drive was broke , they aint that expensive either. Certainly not a costly enough repair to make someone get rid of it for $50.
The guy said it sort-of play games, it's very hard to get it to read games (putting the disk in-and-out-in-and-out...).
I have a SATA port, will all of them work or only some?
EDIT: Could you rehost Firmware toolbox for me? Thanks.
No , not all SATA ports work. Nforce sata and via have the best compatibility and can flash all the drives easily , but depending what drive the 360 has , you can get away with using others. The old hitachis and samsung ms25 can be done with pretty much any sata chipset.
No idea how much a modded box goes for , never looked into it (I do mine myself).
I don't have a copy of firmware toolbox on this pc. Is there something wrong with the download here http://team-xecuter.com/ck3/downloads.htm
You know, on the other hand, ebay (and Divineo.com) for that matter both have RRoD repair kits for less than $20.00. You might want to consider that as an option as well.
Good point. Does it work well? Is it easy?
How long have the LiteOn drives been out for? Any step-by-step guides for modding?
EDIT: Sorry, double post.
You have to wait until iXtreme for Lite-On is released to flash it.
The release date is a day before Christmas.
Do the RRoD repair kits work or not really?
If it's x-clamp replacement, then yes.
If it's a eraser fix, no.
How much do they cost? Know of a good site to buy from?
The one with RRoD is going to be unfixable, the guy ripped it apart! But the DVD drive still looks good. The one that can't read games has the locking thing in drive not working, but can't I use paper or something to fix it(it thinks the drive is open all the time)?
I'm going to open the one that can't read games when I get my opening tool.
EDIT: So if the drives are the same I can just swap them without doing anything?
EDIT2: If the 360 is banned can I still download demos? If not, how do I unban it again?
If they are the same drives , then you can switch the pcb instead of having to change key and spoof. You can't just swap the drives , it's either switch pcb (if they are the same drives) or change key and spoof if they are not.
If it's banned , no demos from marketplace. Can still download from elsewhere and burn to disc.
1. Which PCB? Do you mean the motherboard?
2. Does it need to be flashed for that?
1)The pcb inside the drive.
How do I get at it (after opening the 360)?
