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.
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
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.
