I'm going to buy an XBox 360 - most likely one of the slim versions. I'd like to flash the DVD drive, if I can find a version that accepts it (i.e. Slim LiteOn 9504, 0272 , 0225 , 0401 , 1071). My question is; does the XBox console firmware/dashboard update version matter? For instance, would it only work on version 2.0.14**** and prior versions or would version 18.104.22.168***** also work? I ask because I know mod chips (or at least the chip the electronics market near me uses) only work on earlier versions than 2.0.14. Can it be flashed with just a Sata cable, or do I need to buy anything else? Can I play original XBox games of a different region than the console on Live?
