Hi everyone I'm hoping someone can help me out here, I've modded a fair few xbox1's & 360's just not the fl's

Basically I've got an elite here with the passkey installed and a flashed 79fl.
I also have another 360 with a 79fl but no passkey that I want to flash. My question is:

Can I put the 79fl from the unflashed xbox into my elite (with passkey) dump,patch,flash the firmware and then swap the drive back to it's original box (without passkey) and be good to go?

I think I've figured out that the passkey just enables the reading of the key from the dvd-rom so the firmware can be patched appropriately and then isn't needed to play backups, my worry is that the dvd/key is somehow tied to the mainboard (which has the passkey installed) and if I swap dvdroms for patching I might brick the drive....

little help?

Use Podgers 79unlock.

No soldering / passkey required.
