    look on the sticker at the bottom of your drive, requiring you to open the 360 and void your warranty, and it will read firmware=MS25 or MS28 depending...

    Ok thanks. It has ms25. Oh yeah I'm thinking about flashing it and have some questions. Does it kill your laser? Do you gotta keep on flashing it or you can just use that xtreme 52 and not flash it ever again. Cause I don't play on live. Also I have sata slot on my comp. How do I find out if its compatible cuz i lost all of my manuals. Also I don't know my whats my mobo. Thanks.

    ok it doesnt kill your laser, you may need to update again when new games come out that have to be patched and ran a different way, and you need to check in "msinfo32.exe" to see what your sata chipset is, and see if its compatible with the flash

    you have the Intel ICH6 SATA controller, it may work for flashing, but i dont know, you may want to try and get the VIA sata card

    no, it just wont flash, when you get ready to prepare you usb or floppy for formating pick the chipset from the drop down box and pick make custom mtkflash and then try it, it might work

    How do I make a custom mtkflash and do I have to hex it?

    Oh never mind. I tried Xtreme Boot Maker and seleted my sata port and it worked. Does that mean I can go on with flashing my drive without needing to buy that via pci thing? Oh yeah. I seen people talking about stelth and non stealth. Whats that all about?

    patches, for games i think, im not sure, i dont have a hitachi, but you should be able to flash if it detected, just do the hitachi flash method

    How can I do the hitachi way? I have a samsung ms28.

    sorry, i dont know what i was talking about, it was really early in the morning when i posted that lol, just use the 10 second method to flash your drive, google "textb00ks MS28 drive flash" and im sure you will get a good tutorial, it can be vague at some points but overall its a good walk through on what to do

    Oh thanks so much. But I still have one question that is still bothering me. Oh my god, do you really have to.... open up your computer and the 360 everytime a new xtreme firmware version is out? And oh yeah. I'm going to flash it by a usb. Does that mean I have to have an empty usb to put the files in?

    From what I heard, you can't flash via USB (i.e. connectivity kits)
    you can BOOT from USB and use mtkflash from USB stick but not flash with a USB to SATA adapter. I don't know but you can try.

    Lol I mean put the files onto the usb instead of a floppy. Oh yeah can you help me on the sata cable? I see so many, some for 5-20 bucks. And they don't even look alike. Some has a straight connector while another has one straight connector and a bent connector on the other end.
