    This is the first time i have ever tried to mod a console

    If i flash it do i need to buy any kit to do it i have a sata hard drive and cable so do i need anything else?

    my 360 is a hitachi

    sorry i bet you get this question all the time i mod on many forums it can be annoying

    i have read several tutorials but cannot help but think i am missing something

    your input will be greatly appreciated

    For a good guide you should look at text books guide to modding 360's which can be found on HERE
    I wouldn't flash a Hitachi drive just yet, a new firmware is on the way for those drives so i'd wait a few days until it comes out, unless you don't use xbox live.

    You don't need a sata hard drive but you will need a compatible sata card or motherboard that will pick up your drive in windows. I believe the Sil 3112 /3114 chipsets work for Hitachi's. there are others but I think they are the most compatible. (this is listed in text books guide)

    You may also want a connectivity kit to power the drive but this is not essential as you could use the console itself for power.

    I weould suggest just reading up on it and when you think you are ready, read a bit more just to make certain then go for it :)

    well if you're sure about not using live then you can flash it with the current firmware thats out (C4EVA_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_4_Stealth) and then you will be able to play backups with out a problem.
