Posted 22 October 2010 - 05:35 AM

So what do we do while we patiently wait for some iXtreme firmware for the new Lite-on DG-16D4S 360 Slim?
Well from the moment I heard we could get the key I had figured we could install a old lite-on 74850, 8xxxx or 9xxxx board.
What I didnít know was how much work it was to make it fit. So after hours of playing around I did my first conversion and took some great pictures to share with all.

Many thanks to Geremia for his work on the Tarablinda drive firmware dump program. Thanks to anyone else that might have helped him write this code.

Required materials:

1) Original Xbox 360 Lite-on or Benq Laser
2) Lite-on drive circuit board form original Xbox 360. Any version
3) Lite-on laser ribbon cable
4) Original Xbox 360 Drive power cable. (or extend the 360 slim cable, yay)
5) Electrical tape and Packing tape
6) A small screw. Take one out of a old Samsung drive if you got it
7) Thermal pads. Re use the ones that came with the lite-on or cut some out from the memory chip pads found under most 360 motherboards

Required tools:

1) Soldering iron
2) Hot glue gun
3) High speed rotary tool with cutter
4) Side Cutters

Steps not shown in this tutorial. (if you canít figure them out then this probably isnít for you.

1) 360 Slim disassembly (have fun!! Be patient)
2) How to dump your key using Tarablida
3) How to make custom firmware.
4) How to swap 360 slim laser to benq/original lite-on laser

Damn....it's like trying to fit an RB26 engine in a suzuki swift hatchback vehicle... biggrin.gif
But I have a question that no one has answered, how to spoof the liteon board (any version) to the 9504 drive version?

that is a one of the metod to flash the xbox360 slim, beter is when we change the drive , only to cut some plastic and metal, in that boxxdr metod you cut a one part from the xbox360 on the first foto,in tehe change drive metod you can back install the oryginal drive and make a soft mod.

When a hack comes out for the slim drive it is very much possible to reinstall the original slim original dvd drive board.

Anyone that does my method or simply uses a differnt drive is bound to set off flags in the 360 that will probably result in a ban down the road. I had considered dumping the motherboard nand before i did this hack and then when a slim firmware came out i would have restored the nand first and removed any flags. I just didn't feel like spending the extra time because i know alot of people that would be happy to use this offline only.

One more question here....the pic with the finish product, the part where there is a big gaping hole on the case that have clear tape covering it, can it be like pounded flat instead of cutting it?
