    i heard if you do it without the video cable plugged into the 360 it won't log anything and your safe. but you have to do it in under 5 minutes, which is more then enough!

    is it 100% safe?

    GaryOPA said it could banned because of no DVD drive connected while on, but latter debunked it himself. Still I always flash with a separate power source, because I have that thought in my head now. Plus I have a bricked/banned motherboard laying around anyway so that's what I use.

    in order to externally power it, short of having an xbox 360 motherboard lying around like you, i would have to buy either the xeno or team xecuter connectivity kit correct?

    I can't find the exact discussion when he says it, but as you see here tells people to connect to the Xbox 360 to power the DVD drive and this is long after the bannings and the idea of the non DVD drive connecting logs were discussed.

    No problem. And there's no need to buy anything other than a PCI SATA card if you need one for flashing unless you have a 0079fk.
