Hi guys,

I am totally new to the x-box 360 scene , i have not even got one yet , hopefully going to pick one up tonight or tomoorow . i only have two questions so forgive me if they are dumb ones.

1. Which 360 should i get? the one with the hard drive or the one without? what benefits will i get from having a hard drive.

2. Can anyone advise me where to send the 360 for modification ( i live in Surrey in the UK ) i was advised not to send it too far away.

Many thanks ( sorry for the dumbass questions )

Regards
Dog

Get a Premium package, as the Core is commonly referred to as the "retard" Package.

Send it to me to have it flashed, I will have it back to you in 48hrs. You should send me just the drive though as this will save you on P&P as well as give you the opportunity to check what drive is in the system.

If it is a Hitachi 0078fk, these are currently only flashable by external programmer which i dont do.
Drop me an email if you want any more advice

If the flashing service is free.. you can take Slim up on his offer but it is pretty easy to flash the DVD itself...

Anyone do this for anyone in the US States? Everyone says it is easy, but the tutorials dont look easy.

I am very offended by that comment. Even a retard would be smart enough to not buy the core package.

Flashing the drive is very easy, but you have to understand what you are doing. If you have a samsung and use x360sam, then it could not be more easy. this program does all the patching for you and saves your backup and everything. look into the 360sam.
