    Where is the best place to purchase an XBox 360, to insure that you get one with a dvd-rom that is capable of firmware patching? I just purchased and received my Xeno Top Gear. I am curious if anyone here uses this. I'd greatly appreciate some help.

    My AIM is "bmil cs". I am very good with computers, and have a good deal of technical expertise.

    It seems pretty impossible to mess up the installation of this chip. However, I cannot risk losing the money due to ruing a $400 console. Thanks. Also, should I purchase an Xbox 360 Platinum?

    I appreciate all feedback. Thanks guys.

    it's better to try it online or get it used on ebay.

    Alrighty. So, therefore buying a brand new XBox 360 from Walmart, EBGames, etc. would be pointless right now? Do all the new XBox 360's come with an incompatible DVD-Rom drives that cannot have its firmware updated?

    or you can spend an extra $100 and get a prefolashed model. That way you are 100% sure of what your getting. ($500 for a preflashed premium system) See Teammodders.com (or Xtreme-Source.com buy and trade section for more on theridges system)
