I am not a big poster on these forums but have been modding my xbox/xbox 360 since the xecuter 1 days! (I know I am getting on a bit!)
I just wanted to express my thanks and delight with the information I have found on these forums. Believe me when I say it has been hard going at times as there is so much to digest!
Today I sucessfully modified my Toshiba drive using the slax method with Maximus-Garyopa_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_3_Stealth_Rev2
I then used xbox backup creator to create my first backup using My samsung SH-D162C with KREON 0.81 burning a Verbulam DVD on the pioneer 111D which also worked first time.
As I was on a high I grabbed my brothers XBOX 360 with Samsung 25 drive and flashed that too with Xtreme42B
using xtremebootmaker and X360SAM.
All I have left to say is a big thanks to you all, I could not have done it without YOU.
Now I must go play........
