orginally i had my 360 sent away to be flashed - i didn't really count on having to update it again i'm considering flashing it myself to 1.6 (otherwise the postage cost to and back is going to start to really add up) is it possible to flash it without the orginal firmware? EDIT stratch that, the firmware was emailed to me can anyone give me a quick guide as to what i need to flash the Benq drive using a Vista computer? (i've got a PCI via sata controller on order) - here's as far as i've got so far 1. i've had a quick play with iprep 008.9 and just got a updated defination which recognises the new 1.6 Ixtreme firmware i downloaded 2. i've tried to make a boot drive, while it copies over 'DosFlash' 'DummyGen' 'FirmTool' etc i'm not sure it's copied any files which makes it bootable since i've already got my orginal firmware, presumably i can cut out a few steps and make a new one right? how? okay i've managed to use Firmtool to make my customised 1.6 firmware (using this guide http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/firmware-h...-firmtool.html) is all i need now a method of making a bootable drive and then flash using 'dosflash'?
