You only need to do the MRA method ONCE! Once you have your firmware dump and drive key all future updates are done with software only and never need to take the drive apart again.
Those so called "chips" are NOT mod chips and in more than most cases ends up with a bricked console that ends up needing one of us professionals to repair for you if you are lucky and they can be repaired at all.
If you insist on spending your money on something then get THIS
with the vampire spear addon
. You will of course still need to cut traces and solder just like with anything but will make it a little easier all be it with the cost of some money.
Oh ok, see i thought i needed to undo the solder point to drop the switch and reflash the original firmware before i do a dashboard update. BTW do i really need to use dosflash? Im new to using dosflash, I have more experiance with JF.
The MRA and cheaper than buying the lt switches or vampire. Mra takes a bit more works, but its pretty easy. unless you believe you can do it, then you buy a device.
well i really didnt need the CK3 Xecuter Connectivity Kit when i flashed my BenQ. I really dont see why i need it at all. But since i have a lite-on thats original to the xbox360 i saw that i needed to probe and cut a trace out i was wondering if there is a more cleaner look. Surfing google, i saw those chips and thought why not buy one and do some small soldering. But then i saw multi chips that can be bought but some that needs the probe and others that just need JF.It got all confusing, So i though of asking proffesional opions before i waste money. But more and more i see people are not buy any chip but doing the trace cut instead. so i will do the same
Like i said i do not fear doing the work but why work hard if i can work smart and having a small chip that does the work for me sounded smart before. Now with the results of brinking a discdrive it doesnt sound all to smart but more of a risk. I reather do the trace cutting thanks guys This post has been edited by pepito01226: Jan 6 2011, 07:07 PM
