Hi,

If like me you like to keep your consoles in a virgin state then you'll no-doubt be interest in this method of opening the clips on the back of the xbox 360 without scuffing it up!

There's pics and info here:

http://www.clevermod....php?article=24

Basically, use a CD/DVD spindle/tub plastic to make an xbox 360 case opening key that presses in all the tabs at the same time.

It takes about 5 mins to make up the keys, the plastic can be cut with regular scissors. Any chunk of thin but stiff plastic will do. If you've not got a CD/DVD tub lying around then you could try using an old plastic store card or something similar.

If anyone finds this useful please let me know!

I was the one who closed your last post. This is exactly what I was looking for you to do. Good job and thank you for not posting the same post as last time.
