    im thinking about flashing my "Slim Gears Of War 3 Limited Edition" but i can't find anything on what drive it is or if it can be flashed. i did find some pics & i think it's a liteon but thats all i know. is there a way to find out everything i need to know about if it can be flashed without opening the xbox. i looked at this but pics dont load How to Determine your Xbox360 dvd drive type. i typed my MFR Date (7-11-2011) in here 360drives but nothing showed. i do not want to open this if it can't be flashed

    If you remove the face plate and look under the Xbox 360 Logo on the DVD drives Front Bezel
    you will see an oval shaped hole

    look inside and you will see 1 of 4 things

    White Wires = BenQ

    Yellow Wires = LiteOn

    Red And Black Wires = Samsung

    No Wires/Black Plate = Hitachi

    Hope this helps ;)

    ok. remember this is a "Slim Gears Of War 3 Limited Edition" & from some pics i seen of drives it looks like a liteon. not sure what type of liteon it is. the reason i think its a liteon is because it has no holes or cuts/grooves in it. like i said i really dont want to open it just to find out it cant be flashed but it seems im gonna have to so i can find find out for sure

    it is almost guranteed to be a lite-on since most of those special edition boxes are. also it is probably the 1175 version which i still don't believe can be dumped or flashed but i could be wrong. haven't looked into it for some time.

    buy an unlocked pcb board if youre not gonna try drilling or soldering ironing the chip? i haven't seen any vids that have you do that. i thought that the "Xecuter X360USB PRO V2 Ultimate Bundle" would be enough & there would be no need for all that. guess i was wrong. thx



    thx but i really hope your wrong. i would really hate to open this & void the warranty for nothing

    the last time i remember reading anything they said they had managed to dump the key but then needed to decrypt the dump i guess but that was a long time ago and i haven't heard anything new about it since then.
