Looking to get a 360 this week and have a few questions before diving in:

1) Apart from the HD size and colours is there any other reason to opt for the elite?

2) Can the DVD Rom be flashed on all 360's?

3) Are there any simple guides to flashing them?

3) Console only prices (ie not bundles) I am looking at £180 for the premium and £225 for elite, are there any better prices out there?

and no I dont want to hear that the ps3 is better, thanks.

Rep for all HELPFUL replies.

you get extra 100gb space on HDD - whoops 4got ur post there is nothing different otherwise

yes all dries, hitachi79 needs extra worke, you need to solder on a passkey but i have never tried it or read up on it. there has been reports of a new dvd drive which cant be flashed but that is found in 2008 mfd console and was reported in australia. you will most likely have a benq and have a falcon 2007 mfctd console

it si pretyy straightforward, i done mine. i got lots of ebooks if you want

Check out instore, Game, Gamestation, Woolworths. Gamestation normally give you a game for a tenner, which you have an option, if the guy is nice he would most likely change it to any you want. the guy in mine offered to for my cousin

(1). There's no significant difference between the Premium and Elite. It really is down to colour preference and HDD capacity. If you're looking to buy colour co-ordinated accessories, there's probably less to choose from with the Elite right now.

(2). Samsung, Hitachi and BenQ drives can all be flashed with Xtreme firmware. A new Philips Lite-on drive (Model:DG-16D2S FW:74850C) has been found in consoles coming back from repair centres, but it doesn't appear to be in retail circulation just yet. Odds are you'll get one of the familiar BenQ drives.

(3). There's plenty of flashing tutorials on the net. Here is a good place to find up-to-date and reliable information.

(4). There's probably nowhere better than this site than to find the best deal for what you're looking for!

If you're after a Xbox 360 Premium with iXtreme 1.4, click here. If you've got any other questions, I'll be happy to help.

the elite also comes with an official hdmi cable AND the audio adapter that allows you to have optical out.

Thanks guys (and you too sass) helpful info, may as well plump for the elite looked at info for flashing and so long as my sata card in my pc is the right type Really dont feel like investigating and having to set the computer up at mo) it should be a breeze if not the via cards are cheap enough anyway and once ive done mine i know others wanting it done so will pay for itself.


Now can anyone recommend any brands of d/l discs for errm backup purposes?

first install iprep and check that your sata is compattibale. the hard bit is taking the case off without damaging it, i found the back clips hard, then again i was just using a small piece of metal

I got so angry I damn near ripped off the case....no warranty for me then :whistling:

Here's a good guide I used when flashing:

If you have trouble removing the case, you can buy a special tool - I'm sure it was posted on here as a deal....

Here it is - was £1.90

Comet at £249, without games it was £259!! Not the best games but for a tenner more than the best online price I could find (shopto) then not bad as its from a bricks and mortar store rather than having to wait for delivery, if im buying something I like it asap.
Got the hd drive a couple of weeks back too, all i need now is a hdtv! Talk about doing everything in reverse! Most people would get HDTV>360>HD DVD drive Ive done it in reverse!
