Just in case you didn't know.
Geebee's method was done by using making 2 holes in the back of the 360 with SATA female ports and looping a SATA cable (male on both ends) to both. Then just remove one end of the cable and connect it to a PC to flash. http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=513798
Sniperkilla's method was done by using a SATA male to female adapter and cutting a hole in the sheilding under the HD. Thus all you would need to do is remove the HD, take the under grill off, then just plug a cable into the end going to the DVD drive.
First I realized when I got my cables I had enough lenght on them to make it to the bottom grill, so I started thinking and found a way, I'll describe it throughout the pics. Here is the extension cable that I used, you will need 2 of these http://www.newegg.co...N82E16812198009
First I used a dremmel with a drill bit and some wire cutters (lol, best tools laying around to make do with) to cut 2 holes+4 screw holes in the sheilding to mount the ports.
Next I put some electrical tape on both sides of the sheilding to avoid any electrical shorts (I don't know if it would short, but 5 extra minutes is worth not frying my 360).
As you can see now my ports are mounted.
You will need the stock cable for the grill to fit on, make sure you cut the holes with enough room for the cable to reach both ports.
This is an overview of how the cables run inside the 360 *Note ignore the bent cable in the pic. Do try to make the straight SATA extension cable a right angle (I ruined one, it will not work) Run the cable up the side and on top of the drive, not under it.
This is about how it will look when it's all done. *Note as above, do not run the cable under the drive. Run the cable on the left side of the drive (left of how drive is in pic) and on top of the drive.
As you can see, there is very little room under the grill for the cable
*Note you probably could bend the cable right angle and work. I bent mine to the wrong side first, then back over, so I probably stressed it too much. The cable isn't expensive, but it's a bitch waiting 3 days for one. Also if you do bend the cable, don't do it while it's connected, you'll break the SATA connection on the 360 mobo and then you'd be fuxored.
Good luck and I hope some of you find this useful.
