    I just wanted to know if it was a phat or slim model, doesn't matter anyway nevermind :blush: . Well I never used the xtractor and maximus, rather the probe 3 with the ck3 to extract the dvd key and flash the lite-on drive. But yeah it looks like you have the hardware. But not sure if that sata to pci card will work or not. The one I was told to use is the VT6421A.

    Dang I guess I can't help you without doing some research on those parts. I don't want to mislead you and end up causing you to ruin your xbox. Did your friend use the same tools to mod the same xbox?

    should be all you need if it's not a lite-on since some of the lite-ons require the probe 3. never used the maximus so i can't tell you if it will work with the new lite-ons but you will know as soon as you try to dump your fw if it will work or not. if it doesn't dump, no harm done, just see if someone can reflash it for you or get whatever you may need to update your current kit to work with the new drive fw.

    Yeah man as caboose said you will need a Probe 3 if you have a lite-on, Thats the only drive that does need a Probe to flash. All the other equipment you have is good to use for flashing ;)

    Tremby I have a probe 3. You seem to be a younger guy so I'll flash your lite-on for free ok? Just pay for the shipping both ways.
