I recently bought a ms28 drive to replace my
360's original ms25 that wouldnt read disks
any longer - dvd movies, original xbox 360
games and xbox 360 backups.

About April 2008 I flashed the original drive (ms25)
from factory firmware to iextreme 1.4 as an ms25 drive.

I kept that firmware on it until the end of March
2009 when I flashed it to ixtreme 1.51 as an ms28.
It suddenly stopped reading disks this past week,
so I bought an ms28 from a local shop to replace it.

I am about to flash the new drive (ms28) with iextreme
1.6 but I dont know if I should flash it as an ms25 or ms28.

With the original drive (ms25) flashed with 1.4 as an ms25
the system made it through the bannings last fall unscathed.
On the other hand since it was flashed with 1.51 as an ms28
for the last month or so its been smooth sailing until it stopped
reading disks this past week.

My main concern here is staying unbanned on xbox live (the
drive was reading original games/backups fine whether flashed as
ms25 or ms28).

So should I flash my new ms28 with 1.6 as a ms25 or ms28 ?

If original was ms25 then spoof it as ms25.
