Whats the major differences between the Connectivity Kit v1 and v2? Since I haven't heard whether I won or not yet, I figured it might be wortwhile to spend the $55 for a v2 connectivity kit. Do you have to open your box with v2? Is there a tutorial on how to flash your firmware with each of the connectivity kits?
The only difference between the connectivity kits (afaik) is that the second version has a ring of leds and has a power switch so you can turn it on and off. I don't even think it can be purchased separately. It comes with the X360USB. This can be used to flash Hitachi drives using USB. It can't be used to flash Samsung drives right now.
There is a tutorial for flashing a Hitachi using the X360. Adamscybot wrote it.
