    I am new to this scene and hence the seemingly retoric questions.
    But here it goes..
    I have just bought myself a pal version of a year old xbox 360 on ebay with possibly an year old xtreme firmware on it.
    Am i right in beliveing that i cannot play region locked games?
    Also are patched vesions of newer games or just backups compatible with older (hacked) firmwares or am i ment to update my firmware to its latest spec?
    Also to update your firmware are you meant to open up the xbox and start do the whole flashing thing all over again!.
    thanks in advance for your answers!

    -You can only play pal games, so yes it is region locked.
    -Newer games/backups are fully compatible with the older firmware
    -Updating the firmware is near enough to flashing the entire thing again, methods vary with different drives. For example, if you have a hitachi drive in ur 360, then you will have to flash back the original firmware, then flash the updated hacked fw to it. With samsung drives you dont have to put the original firmware back on the drive before updating the firmware, depends what tutorial/method you follow on how to flash the drive.
