Alright gurus...a little help if you would. I installed my xecuter 2.3ce..everything perfect. Flashed it with X2 bios. (the latest version). Everything perfect. I go to make a boot disk for Avalaunch and I cannot get my garbage Thompson drive to read ANY media. CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R...all different brands. I tried everything i know. I spent 6 hours trying to get it to read somthing. I did the POT tweak. I cleaned the laser and the mirror. NO LUCK. it plays x-box games. I did everything. .I have come to the conclusion that my dvd rom is shot but I do not want to buy a replacement considering after I load th dash, I will never use it ever again.

Please PLEASE PLEASE tell me an alternitive to loading a dashboad with using the dvd-rom. I know its possible I just dont know how. Any input would be greatly appriciated. God bless you.

I don't think you can unlock it without booting to a dash with an x2.3...

You could do it by hotswapping into XboxHDM.
