As you can see by my status I am a newbie. This also applies to my intelligence. I have an xbox 360 and i am thinking about buying a blaster 360. I have no questions on the drive of the xbox 360 or on how to install the blaster 360. My question is once properly attached, what do you do with the blaster 360. How do you flash your firmware? What is the point of this? How does this tie into home brewed games? How does the blaster 360 function with xbox live? How do you make home brews work on xbox 360? (if u cannot answer this, excuse my stupidity). Do you need any wire or cables to properly use the blaster 360? (i.e. wires to attached the xbox 360 to the computer) Thanks.
