Hey guys, i just recently flashed a 79 and ran into a couple problems along the way, all is well and thought i might jot down the steps i took to successfully flash the 79. Tools Needed FW Toolbox 4.8 79 Unlock tools both can be located HERE 1. Boot up PC with slax 2.1(always works best by turning on PC then 360 after PC is powered, when the screen says "spinning up disc", press eject, press eject 3 times to get the drive to stay closed, get into modeB or CK(Connectivity Kit) 2. goto my computer and eject the dvd drives until you find which one is truely the drive letter of 79. 3. Once correct drive is ejected, insert unlock tool(disc with wav file) 4. play wav file until it stops, once stopped, press play again and then pause right after pressing play. 5. Close windows media player(or whatever program you used to play and pause wav file. 6. Eject disc from 360 by using the eject button on the console itself, and leave the disc tray open. 7. copy 79 unlock tool folder to c:\ 8. open command prompt(Xp users, start, run, cmd, Vista users, start, go down to search field, type cmd, click to open) 9. if you didn't change folder name of unlock tool, type the following in the command prompt. a. c:\ b. cd "type the name of the folder where the 79 unlock files are located" c. 79unlock g(NOTE:"g" is going to be the drive letter of the 79 drive") 10. once completed it will say "done!" 11. close command prompt window 12. now insert game or dvd movie into 79 dvd tray and press eject button 3 times to keep the drive closed. 13. open firmware toolbox 4.8 14. Click "tools", "Direct Drive Dump" 15. choose where to save file and save as original.bin, when it is done creating original it will ask you if you want to perform checksum select ok, and then when done it will ask you to open, click yes again. 16. click "tools", smart hack patcher, press ok to the upcoming message, then select where you want to save hacked firmware and press generate. then it will say hack firmware has been created, select yes to open the file. 17. goto tools, direct drive flash, differential flash(PATCH), select dvd drive, then press read and detect differences, once completed, press start flashing, and your all done, enjoy!!!
