    Hi All,

    I currently have an xbox 360 with ixtreme firmware 1.5 (i think) and was wanting to know how i would go in upgrading it when 1.6 comes out?
    I had the xbox 360 flashed by someone else and really didnt want to go back to the other side of town when the new firmware is released.
    I have found a guide but it is very complex.
    I have a new tower pc (Asus motherboard) which has spare sata ports on board and was wondering can i plug a lead from there direct to the xbox 360 drive or do i need to buy a "SATA VIA VT6421A PCI Raid Card For Vista Xbox 360 PC" card from ebay?
    The guide also says something about via chipsets,well how do i know if my motherboard has this or not?
    Also can i just install 1.6 over 1.5?
    Sorry to ask so many questions but i would really like to know how to do it myself.

    Grab CPUZ, it will be able to tell what you have

    For lite-on you do really need the via chipset (I forget the onboard numbers but I think it was 8421

    1.6 over 1.5, there have been rumblings of similar things happening at some point for the lite-on but I would not count on it.
    Diagram for the lite-on key:

    I know I already gave you the link but in case others are reading:
