Hitachi V41 Tutorial Help *unclear Part* (noobie)

Hitachi Flashing with Hitachi-LG Firmware v2.1:
The autoflasher is the best way to flash the Hitachi as it does not require you to copy the key across using KDX or hex editor. It patches the firmware around the key.
Also everything is in one auto-detecting batch control, no more bricked drives, due to flashing the wrong FW to the wrong version of drive, and updating does not start unless a BACKUP has been correctly stored and checked and it will reflash automatically until it is correct!
Even better, you can get to modeb easily by turning the 360 on with the drive tray open.
Also, if when booting a backup game and the dashboard displays OPEN TRAY, you just need to press the EJECT button, the tray will stay CLOSED, but the dashboard will "auto-trick" into reading the game!
Extract the files and from a cmd prompt in the right folder run FLASH21.BAT <Hitachi drive letter> <unique 4 digit number[/u]> batch file from a dos prompt specifying drive letter:
How am I suppose to get the unique 4 digit number? Did I miss something? Thanks in advance.

that's great . So once I finnished that whole section, is my 360 considered flashed? I really am not interested in patching it for stealth.

Another problem, my hitachi dvd drive is connected to my computer and I am doing the slax boot disc way. But when I turn on my computer and turn my 360 on I get the 4 red lights. Does this mean my hd cables have to be connected at tv for the whole process? What time of my computer booting do I need turn on my 360?
With the 4 flashing lights, connect your AV cable. I think it's best to leave all the cables connected until you're 360 %100 flashed. Best to be sure. Leave the hitachi on as well, that's how it's worked in my experiance. Open the 360 dvd tray if windows hangs on the winXP splash screen on boot up as well.

1.- make sure the drive is recognized by Windows
2.- open a command prompt window (start->Run->type in: CMD)
3.- go to the location of the flasher file
4.- type "flash21 <drive letter assigned to your H-LG drive> <Any 4 digit number>
Example: "C:\360>flash21 g 2687"
5.- let the flasher do its thing xD
6.- if everything went ok u should see:
PASS: Flashing of XTREME firmware is 100
DONE: You can now shut-down your system!
7.- now u can start to backup your games
For making backups see this post
