    Hi guys, I want to buy an XBOX and pay someone to flash it. Can someone be so kind to link me to a bestbuy/newegg/amazon etc xbox that is compatible with latest "dashboard" and hack (ixtreme LT+ 3 from what I read)?

    I hacked my (and my friends) PS3, I know it just takes some time to read, but I don't want to buy a flasher, open up the console, flash, put it together, etc... when the guy that does the flashing where I live charges only $15.

    Thank you in advanced for your help.

    Ive had my arcade system for over 2 years now. Its been flashed and re-flashed whenever updated firmware came out. I have never had a problem with it and it has never overheated. I play online sometimes for hours at a time with no problems. I bought mine brand new. Did you maybe buy someones trade in or a refurbished unit?

    I can only find REFURBISHED Xbox Arcade on bestbuy. Is it alright if I buy one of those or does REFURBISHED mean it may come with an undesired un-flashable DVD drive?

    I don't even know what "Arcade" is, I've never even played with an XBOX before, only Play Stations.

    Get a Jasper model Xbox 360. It doesn't matter if arcade, Pro or elite. They are far much less hassle to flash than the slims and Jaspers won't over heat like older models. Basically look for Xboxes made after November 2008. Also these models take a 150w power supply.

    I had a Jasper, still got red ring. You just can't say that they won't overheat. I personally would get a slim, they don't overheat (red ring) that often. And if you pay someone to flash it - who cares about the hassle?
