that adapter will work fine, you can either use the MAX232 or MAX3232 chips or any equivalent TTL converter. only difference between MAX232 and MAX3232 is the 3232 was made to work at 3.3v although the 232 will do the same it was designed to work at 5v

Can someone clarify the following for me?

1-"You must power on PC without sata cable connected to drive."
So therefore boot LiteOn Drive in the xbox360 with both the SATA and other Connector attached to it?

2-"You must poweron the drive with tray half opened and eject switch in open state."
How exatcly do I power-on the drive so the tray is half way opened and the eject switch is in open state?

3-Can this be done under windows, or will I have to create a bootable so I'm in pure DOS mode?

Is there a tutorial without using the connectivity kit?

It says to open the drawer halfway with a paperclip, but when i turn my 360 on the drive closes itself again. When i open it halfway with a paperclip when the power is on the drive knows i eject it and so it wont work.

Can anyone confirm for me that if i solder 2 bits of kynar wire from the bottom 2 solder points on the liteon board, then solder the correct wire to TX and one to RX on the board that it will do the same job as re-soldering the 2 contact points. Im a bit heavy handed and those solder points are a bit on the small side for me....

Get a connectivity kit and you wont' have to do any soldering.

I think you are missing what im saying. the 2 points on the liteon board that need to be re-soldered are the problem for my heavy handed soldering, those 2 are re-soldered for the rx and tx to operate, if i solder some wire from the positive of both points directly to the rx and tx points, will that do the same job as resoldering the 2 points. Then just solder the vcc, tx, rx, gnd to the board ready for reading.

Yes. You can solder the TX and RX to the 2 small solder points, or you can reconnect the 2 solder points and use the 2 bigger solder points under the power connector.
