May I ask what's wrong with it, I was about to try it, but if you say it's not working correct, I shouldn't bother trying

QUOTE("SeventhSon")
WARNING: If you are going to connect your 360 and PC together in *any* way, then you *must* provide the 360 with a path to true earth ground. This is because the 360 has a floating ground and horrible things happen if all connected systems do not agree on the reference voltage. I used a couple of croc clips from the chassis of the 360 to the chassis of my PC to achieve this.


There do not seem to be any warnings like the one above in the tutorial, is this "earthing" no longer deemed necessary?

I found I only needed a T10 screwdriver. I went out and bought a T8, but it was never needed.

thanks, i used it today to flash my drive.

I already disassembled the xbox with another tut, but i used this to flash the drive. I ran into some minor PC specific problems but I solved them by searching the forum
