please help me flash my 360........ Lite-on FW 0225
please help me flash my 360........ Lite-on FW 0225 –
okay so i just ordered a replacement pcb board. and have a few questions.
can i use my xbox360 to power the drive???? ( im already planning on taking out the wifi card so it cant phone home)
so im gonna hook up to JF an extract my original "drive key". then i will install my pcb board. then i re-hook up to JF and do the flash....correct?
im using my laptop to flash i have a PCMCIA series I/O card. and im planning on using the console to power the drive and ofcourse take out the wifi card before i do anything.
im just soo worried about getting my console banned. and i dont want to mess anything up. there is sooooo many tuts out there most out dated so i wanted to hear from some tenured flashers.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
I would not recommend using the 360 to power the drive as the 360 will log the error (regardless of the missing wifi adapter) and may result in a ban. It's better and more convenient to use a power dongle like the new CK3i. Yes it does cost money but it will be a lot easier and safer to flash your drive.
Besides the 360 never phones home unless you try to connect to xbox LIVE (as far as I know) so don't quote me on that.
Plus you need a special SATA interface as 99% of SATA interfaces are incompatible with flashing software especially the new slim drives.
It may be cheaper to send your console off to a pro. Most will flash the drive for $30-$50 depending on what model the drive is and what is required to flash the new PCB.
Did you make sure the new PCB is unlocked or a MXIC flash chip? Winbond chips are a nightmare to unlock unless you know exactly what you are doing.
I am not by any means trying to force you to send it to a pro like me, I am simply showing you what flashing your new PCB may entail.
What you choose to do is up to you.
damn i was afraid of that. so i have to buy a connectivity kit to power the drive so i dont get banned. so is it fact if i use my 360 for power i will be banned??? just wondering cause the pcb board is 70$

PCMIA VIA card with VIA VT6421 Chipset is what i bought awhile ago.
its a thread called "How to Flash any Xbox 360 Drive with a Laptop" its on se7ensins website
sorry this place wont allow me to post links
i really appreciate your help
When flashing a 360 drive there are no guarantees that you will or will not be banned regardless of what you do. You can use you 360 to power the drive, just make sure to put the A/V cable in (if using HDMI, the other end must be plugged in to the TV) otherwise the console will power itself off in around 5 minutes.
The SATA card you have should work. Keep in mind that these new Lite-On drives can be flaky with the VIA VT6421 chipset. I know the 9405 drives work fine with it. I don't have any 0225 drives to test. Try it out.
Don't constantly turn on and off the xbox while the DVD drive is not fully hooked in to the xbox as that would really get MS' attention (unless the PCB is starting to fail).
Just download the JungleFlasher 1.4.4 Tutorial and you should be fine. Goto Jungleflasher.net to download the tutorial and Jungleflasher itself. Follow the guide.
Keep in mind that the unlocked PCB may get relocked while being used in the 360, this is only a real problem if the flash chip on the PCB is a Winbond. MXIC Flash chips can easily be unlocked and locked very cheaply and pretty safely.
Your best bet would have been to try to purchase the Team-Xecuter custom slim PCB which can be locked and unlock with a flip of the switch. It is around $75 and you wouldn't have to solder the power cable back in, unless you don't mind doing that.
Let me know if you need any more help.
