Also what's the point of spending $300 on the elite when you're just going to hack it? Don't really need all that storage...
Didn't see that you posted that, oops. I bought the Elite because it could be easily flashed (it was a BenQ drive and I knew it) and it had HDMI.

Yeah I think I did everything correctly. Jungleflasher went smooth besides a few pc freezes. I went to walmart to try and find some Verbatim DVD+R DL but they didn't have any so looks like I have to wait for newegg to ship me a spindle.

I'm excited to give it a go. I'm reading up on ABGX and trying to understand all of this security talk, it's like chinese to me.

Is it safe to play single player burned games while being connected to xbox live? Or should I just not connect the ethernet cable at all?

I don't quite understand what they mean when they say it's risky playing online. Do they mean like in a MP game or like being connected to xbox live at all?

I lucked out and had a Hitachi drive. All i had to do was open up the 360, connect the drive to my old computers mobo (my old dell 4600 has a compatible mobo for flashing so no need to buy a PCI card) then flash it. Took me about 1-2 hours total and can play backup games now.
Sad thing is I got xbox live banned for playing MoW 2 before it came out. I don't really care though, the 360 is mainly for single player gaming, i play multiplayer more on the Ps3

There's a site where they tell you if your Sata bus is compatible or not. Google it.

My understanding is that if you use the ABGX program to verify the "stealth mode" or whatever it's called then you should be good to go on Live. Otherwise, the console records the fake disc and reports it when you connect.

You can play burned games on Live as well as long as they are stealthed properly.

You really shouldn't put your modded Xbox 360 online anymore at all. You're waiting for a ban to happen.

The truth is - no one knows for sure what checks Microsoft does against the 360 to see if it has a modded firmware drive. People *THINK* they know some of the checks - but the safest thing to do is to keep a modded Xbox 360 offline, and an unmodded one online.

I'm in the same boat. Ordered a spindle from newegg because I didn't feel like paying $40 for 20 of them at best buy.

You're going to want to read up on abgx in great detail if you want to avoid the ban hammer as long as possible. There's a lot more to do than just burning the game and playing.

I won't be going online with my xbox so I'm guessing I won't be banned I hope

and do they ban your xbox (aka you won't be able to play games anymore) or just ban your life account ?
