1st time 360owner,just got slim,need advice –
hey guys does notone here follow the latest 360 scene news? cause i just got a black slim model#1439 4gb i think it is anyways i got it from a friend for really cheap and there is no hdd in it but i see a sata connector in the drive bay ,so im not sure if it had a 250gb hdd and someone took it out or what,also there is no drive caddy,should there be one?
anyways its a black slim and it was refurbished,and i was wondering how i can tell if i have a moddable drive,hopefully without opening it,but the guide i found for that says to check the sticker on the box,which i dont have,plus it was refurb,
then i found a drive tray id guide but it doesnt say if those drives in the guide are only in fats or if they are in slims too
i read that there is a 9540(whatever that is, a fw version i think)and if you have it you can flash your drive,but what if you dont?can you buy another drive that is flashable and put it in a slim?
and i also read about a drive motherboard,that has a write protect switch so you prevent anyone else from reflashing the drive
and i read something about the new dash reflashing drives,
so what should i do? if i have a 9504 should i still get a pre unlocked dvd drive motherboard?and will i still need a flasher/ a ck3pro?
or will it not be needed if i have a 9504?
and is connecting the drive to a pc the only way to tell if it a 9504?
and is there a fw for the slim that is compatible with the new dash that is safe for xbl that i can use on my slim,how can i find out?
or will i be able to mod my slim no matter what if i get one of these new dvd drive boards that are pre unlocked,i know i will need to reflashit myself with the console id or the onlt dvd drive id or key or something right
please forgive me i am sort of clueless when it comes to the 360 scene,especially when it comes to slims,i never even owned a xbox 1
The glossy finished ones are 250gb model.
On xbox360drives.com you find a list about drives but it is not always correct.
thanks ,yea mine is more of a matte finish and it was refurbished,and i dont think it was a 250gig ,there is no drive but there is a deive bay and i can see a sata connector in there ,but there is no drive caddy,so i dont know if it had one or is supposed to and someone removed it?
and i was reading about those new drive boards that have a manual write protect switch on them ,
so if i get one does that mean i can mod my slim, no matter what it has?
and is there a net iextere lt+ fw for the new dash? that can work on my slim if i have one of the new boards?
and do all the slims have a drive that i can use those boards with? or will i need to but a new drive if its not the right one?or is that not even possible?
here is some info for ya on the dvd rom bit:
Total Guide To Xbox 360 Firmware, Xbox DVD Drives & Xecuter CK3 Kits - Team Xecuter
here is some info on the hdd:
XECUTER X360USB PRO HDD Hacker Tool Released ! - Team Xecuter
i usually use TX gear with my 360 moding they have a large array of things in the 360 moding department
as far as knowing what DVD rom you have if i recall correctly you have to connect the DVD rom to jungle flasher to even know whats going on with that and as that first thread says the 0225 (i think thats the model # any how) are not currently writable but some thing is in the works for this all tho no ETA has been announced for it
all in all for the hard drive just buy a 3erd party WD hdd that is able to be mod'd and used on the 360 and snag up one of thos 3erd party drive caddy's on that link up there and all should be well no real need to buy the HDD hacker tool as every thing is available to do this without it
searching the TX site for there guide on how to ID the DVD rom with the serial # and lot # right now will post once i find it how ever its not always 100% accurate
i dunno man i hear a lot of bad talk about the maximus tgeams support and what not as far as that lizzard is concerned but to each there own i suppose the X360USB pro seems to be a really nice gadget also and jungle flasher and team jungle also works really closely with TX so all TX gear and what not is all compatable with JF

like i said im kinda bias toward TX products i have used them for 5 years and never really had so much has 1 problem with there products tho i will admit the lizzard is very apealing as it dosent even need a computer to flash but i think i will stick with a brand name i know and trust
I always trust and use Maximus products , used them for years ... started off with the 360 then went onto my maximus avr board for my ps3 now the lizard ...never had any problems and they are always updating the lizard
yea but i dont think a lizzard will work on the slim , and i think that the slims have different drives in them than the fats
no i dont know if my drive is 0225 or or 0227 or whatever it might be the moddable 9540 ,but i hear that even is it is that MS could use the new das to lock it down so it cant be flashed again , but they have these new boards for the slms drives ,but not sure if they are for all slims or if you need a certain drive or what ,
but they have a manual write protect switch on them so that after you flash it you can lock it so ms cant relash their fw to is and so you can flip the switch when you want to re flash it and ms cantlock your drive so it cant be updated
so i am thinking that even if i have a 9540 fw on my drive and it is possible for me to get one , that i should get one of the new dvd drive boards ,
i just dont know if there is a iextreme lt+ fw available for the slims and or my drive that is compatible with the new .13xx dash version 'does anyone know?
does anyone know about slims specifically , because they are totally different than the fats from what i understand
i just want to know if i can mod the drive to play backupd and go on xbl safely , and what is the beast way that someone with experience would recomend for me to do that
yes i have seen videos of slims being flashed with a ck3pro and then i read other stuff that says you need a 360usbpro to flash slims ,so i am confused about which flasher ,and if i should cet the new unlocked dvd drive board for my slim ,or if i can even use it ,cause i dosnt say if they are for all slims or only ones with certain drives
plus i dont even know if there is up to date fw for the slim or if matters if you have a board or not like is there an up to date fw for the slim but only if you have the board?
no there is no latest lt+ for the slims yet , the lt+ 1.9 is not out yet ,but does anyone here have a slim that knows what they are talking about?
i mean i know that if i have the 9504 fw (and dash version .12xxx) on the drive in my slim that i can flash it now with the lt+ 1.1 version ,but that i wont be able to go on xbl
but i dont know about the new dash update , i mean i know there are these new pre unlocked dvd drive boards fo the slims that you need to flash your drive if you have a drive that has the 0225 fw or any fw other than the 9504 fw on it , but i also hear that once you update the dash on a slim to the new .13xxx that it will automatically reflash your drive to the stock 0225 fw and then it will be locked so that you cant reflash it wthout buying a new unlocked motherboard for you drive , so is this correct? and what if you update the drive fw to the new lt+ 1.9 before you do the new dash update ? will it still reflash it to stock fw and lock the drive ?or does it leave the lt+1.9 on there and just lock down the drive o it cant be updated again wothout buying the board? and isnt that risky? i mean arent you supposed to not update your dash if you have lt+ flashed on your drive? ,arent you supposed to reflash your drive to stock fw before you do the dash update?
so does this mean that anyone with a slim that wants to be on the latest dash and to be able to play backups on xbl and not be flagged for a ban will have to buy one of these new pre unlocked dvd drive motherboards , the ones from team xecuter with the write protect switch on them?even people with a slim that has a 9504 drive in it and are on dash .12xxx will have to buy a board if they want to update to .13xx and use lt+ .13xx and be able to use xbl safely ?
also wouldnt it be safe if i have a slim on dash .12xxxx and a drive with 9504 fw on it to flash the drive now with lt+1.1 just so i can play backups for now offline? or will flag me for a ban if i do that? or will it be safe if i reflash my drive back to a stock fw then update the dash and then flash to lt+1.9 and then be safe playing backups on xbl?
