Well I went ahead and flashed my Samsung 616t with the 605b firmware. I hooked it up using the pc dvd drive method, and it worked!
It can read all media including ORIGINAL GAMES! I have not heard of anyone else accomplishing this, although I am not saying I am the first. If you have, post in here and let me know how it went.
However, I am not going to leave it like this, as it is a pain in the ass to eject it, and then force it to go back in, and then reboot the xbox everytime I want to play a game. So, what have you all experienced with this?
