Right then everyone, got a selection of questions for you. You probably get this a lot, and for that I apologise. . Right to kick off; I have an Xbox 360 Elite console, it's about 2 years old and from what research I have gathered has a BenQ Liteon drive and is running dashboard 2.0.16202.0, the main question is can this be flashed? from the research I have done there isn't much chance of me being able to Jtag it, but I only want to play backups anyway. If it is possible to flash it, how difficult is it? Is it possible for a complete novice like myself? The other questions I have is; Is flashing my 360 "Safe"? I had someone flash my console before and it got the RROD a couple of weeks later, can this lead to the RROD or was it just at the end of it's lifespan? The other possible problem I have is the fact that my disc drive sometimes makes a "noise" when there isn't a disc in it, an almost grinding noise, it can also take a little while before starting to install games. My worry is that if I flash it the copied games wont play due to my drive being crap. Cheers in advance everyone, and sorry again for the silly noobish questions.
