    Hey guys, I need to re-flash my 360 for 1.51, problem is, I dunno where the fook I stand as fas as flashing goes.

    I have an elite flashed with the latest 1.5ix i think - it was flashed before the liteon drives could be done so I ended up paying a guy to flash the liteon key into a BENQ dvd drive.

    SO now I have a BENQ dvd drive spoofed as the original lite on. I still have the lite on drive sitting on my desk (covered in dust)

    So my question is :- How do I go about updating to the latest FW? As i see it i have a few options....

    1: Put the liteon back i nthe 360 & flash it to the lastest FW - I assume I'd need to buy a probe & connectivity kit for this?
    2: Update the spoofed BENQ to 1.51 - is this possible? Im thinking I can get the liteon key out of the BENQ & flash the BENQ up to 1.51, still spoofed as Liteon?
    3: Could I get the key from the BENQ & put itinto the liteon and flash the liteon without a connectivity kit?

    Im blagged, its so fricken complicated!!

    Any advice would be greatm thanks. I posted these questions at xboxscene but the answere i got were to compex. I need noob language!

    Should be as simple as if you had a stock firmware on the BenQ to update it to 1.51, just follow the JungleFlasher User Guide.

    Does it matter that the BENQ drive is spoofed as a liteon?

    It shouldn't. Everything about the BenQ drive is in its firmware, and JungleFlasher should notice from your dump.

    Worst case scenario: You dump your drive firmware, find out that for some reason you're not going to 1.51, reflash to your original ix1.5 dump.
