Replied as well bro! Keep me posted and look forward to helpin ya out!

Quick Note:
========

For the meantime, I'm going to have to request that those sending me a Hitachi 78fk jobs to please plan on shipping the core console as I have been having trouble with my VIA card on 78fk drives and won't be able to test out your drive on my system with my key to verify my work. An issue has arised in which i might not be able to reflash your drive once i test it out with my key and the problem lays with getting it back into mode B after i'd spoofed it to my ms25 system and injected my key into the Hitachi for a thorogh testing of a successful dump and flash to your drive's chip.

To avoid any delays until i get my new PC in and tested for 78fk flashing, this will be necessary to guarantee a working job on your system as i would originally test them out on my system to ensure the ensuing flash with your key and upgraded firmware will work (as you will just pop in your drive and rock n roll when you get it). Just so you know, the service is still $10 for the backup, firmware upgrade, and testing, then assured reflash to your system. I can easily backup and reflash a Hitachi 78fk to work on your system, but that would mean that i will have to ship it out back to you without testing and I wouldn't feel right to offer half assed service like that since i guarantee my work 100%.

I figure the extra $10 to cover the overnight shipping and weight of your 360 console is better than getting back a flashed but untested dive from me. Either way, if you wanna save the $10, I'll still accept just the drive but keep in mind that it will be shipped back without testing. I just wanna save ya all time and take that extra measure to make sure your Hitachi 78fk drive and system are working together in harmony. Either way, all Toshiba Samsung and initial Hitachi drive flash jobs are unaffected; this is ONLY for those who have a Hitachi drive that has the 0078fk firmware. Thank you all for your interest and feedback so far! Peace out!

Hell yeah! Glad to be able to help you guys out, thanks for the feedback! Thank you all so much!

Just to clarify on the Hitachi's with 0078fk firmwares, I can still just do it for $20 if you decide to just send me the DVD drive. I will verify the original firmware dump and the reflash of course, it's just that i won't have any console to test it out with before i ship it back to you (ever since my VIA PCI card setup won't reflash the Hitachi or get into mode B once i insert my key and spoof it to test on my system). So only if you want that extra assurance of a tested drive, then I ask that you ship me the core console so i can verify before i ship you back your setup. Remember, this does include overnight shipping via FedEx as always! Any other questions or concerns, just let me know thru PM or email me at xtreme_360fw@hotmail.com! BUMPERS!

just got my 08/2006 (mfr) 360 today. dvd tray has the single hole at the bottom i believe means its a samsung. im gonna use it for a few weeks to see if it dies on me. i cant afford to replace it. then i plan on shipping it to you.

a few questions if you dont mind

-so only the dvd drive right?
-can i do newest live dashboard update now and still have you mod firmware later?
-after firmware flash can i still use live?
- will i be able to backup my own 60 f'in dollar games?
(im plenty familiair with bitsetting and clonecd)
-if not what are the limitations on images i pal/ntsc?
-this definetly voids my warranty right? even to an inattentive target employee?

sorry to be bothersome heck knows 30$ doesnt cover badgering questions.

Actually bro, all questions are welcome and i'll answer them as best as i can! Only the DVD drive is necessary. Again, only the Hitachi 78fk drives are the only ones i'll need the core console if you want a 100% tested drive but i can still do them without the console if you choose.

-Seeing as you have a Samsung, then just the DVD drive is needed.
-Feel free to do the live dashboard update now as well as the XBox 1 backwards compatability update since the new Xtreme 5.2 firmware allows single layer XBox 1 backup use in ISO mode (no dual layers needed anymore)!
-You'll still be able to use XBox Live! but only do so at your own risk and I would suggest you use your original 360 Live game title when you play online for assurance and safety as we don't know what M$ plans on doing about the firmware hacks (so just be safe and use the original when playing Live!).
-Seeing again as you have a Samsung drive, yes... you will be able to backup your own $60 investments like we all are doing now (I just damaged my 2nd original of Gears of War already!!! arghhh! )
-As long as the games are Region Free, then you can use them on your NTSC/U console with no problems. Region locked games and backups of those original games won't play due to the region restrictions.
-Warranty is voided as you will open up the system in order to remove the DVD drive to send my way to upgrade. There are techniques in properly removing the MICROSOFT warranty sticker without damaging it if in case you feel it's necessary to do so. It involves a hair dryer (or heat gun), exacto knife, a steady hand and some time.

All questions are welcome bro and i thank you for posting them here on the thread, that way, others looking in who might have similar questions will be able to read as well and find out the answers. If you plan on shipping the core console (so i can remove the warranty sticker properly and do my thing on it), then it will be $30. If you open it up yourself and just ship me the drive, then it will only be $20! Hope that answers your questions bro! Let me know what you wanna do! Peace!

That's what I'm here for bro! Glad i was able to answer your questions! If your console was manufactored in 2006 and you aren't using a Nyko fan add-on, you shouldn't have any problems as a lot of heat issues were resolved from the original launch systems (I haven't had any problems with my launch system to date. Either way, it's a good thing to stress test your system out. Best game to test it with is Gears of War of course! Let me know how it goes for you! Peace out!

Sorry bro, I don't sell games as it is against the rules of these forums and local laws. This site has excellent forums and tutorials in backing up your own original 360 titles yourself. All I am offering is a firmware backup, flash, and return shipping and nothing else! If you need a flash and live about 20 mins away, i'll be glad to help you out. I have damaged my 2nd copy of Gears of War so if you have that game to trade, I'll flash your drive for it. Let me know what you wanna do, peace!
