nice one, homesick will be pleased i think :)
right, first question,
i found out my drive is a philips lite-on
my pc or lappy have no sata connection
i read that it could be possible to use a usb to sata through the laptop
or, get a pci card for pc with a sata connection
then there's the issue of chipset, does chipset really make that much of a difference or is it a compatability issue with the programs being used?
You will need both sata and usb connection for the liteon drive, also a connectivity kit with the ck3 probe on the r707 point of the drive to obtain the key and ids.
There is allot of information on the liteon in the jungleflsher guide, but be warned if using the via chipset you will either need to remove the drivers or use dosflash once you have your keys.
Any problems, feel free to pm me
Forgot to mention if you have no sata the the via 6421 pci card is the choice, connects all 360 drives, found on ebay for about £10
saw that homey, i think my stubby fingers will mess up soldering!
nice neat joints i have to say!
think a probe comes with the connectivity kit anyway?
there is another method i believe that only requires opening the xbox once to connect it and then all you have to do after that is connect it to your pc?
i cant remember what its called but would this be a better option to go for or is it just for certain type of drive do you know?
ah here it is xecuter blaster 360
