I'm modding my console as soon as my X360 USB kit arrives; it has a Hitachi drive and was manufactured in August 2005. Can I assume, therefore, that it is one of the very first models of Xbox 360?

Anyhow, I'm trying to get my head around the whole 'firmware upgrade' process. It seems a lot more complex than modding my old Xbox! Is there only a certain firmware which will work with my drive/console? Or can I use any one? And if so, which one is best? Do some offer 'stealth' capabilities, or am I likely to be banned from XBL however I mod my console?

Apologies if this all sounds very obvious; I HAVE read many forum posts and tutorials, but they mostly seem geared towards people who know a little about what they're doing, unlike me! smile.gif

Always check the pinned topics if you are unsure whether or not you are asking legit questions. I mean, to me, it doesn't really matter because I think the whole point of the newbie forums is for questions exactly like that. Last time I looked there is an entire step by step guide on flashing firmware in the pinned topics tho.

Oh...Are you sure it's the iXtreme? because I read another page here on Xbox-Scene which suggested the Commodore4Eva firmware was the best to use for Hitatchi drives?

I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY

I feel retarded now. Yeah okay, hah hah, the iXtreme firmware IS the Commodore4Eva firmware.

Sorry guys! biggrin.gif In my defense, it's late here in the UK!
