so what should i do
all working fine, he burn me some games too all fine ???
#7
What you should do is learn just how easy it is to do your own modding

How much did you pay him?
#8
so if its my 360 should have all profiles etc or they can be transered easy ???

i dont have a pc so it impossible for my to flash :(
#9
Profile is on the hdd/memory card so isn't affected

Is it a hdmi model yes? whats the manufacturing date?

Sounds like he's swapped your insides (brand-new) for his (old)
[mod]#10
Your profiles are stored on the HDD not the 360 itself. :)
#11
Sounds like you no longer have a falcon mobo but now have a zephyr which is way more prone to the 3RROD,

You should have flashed it yourself.
Its v.easy even for a n00b!

yes hdmi, same as before just power brick, i check drive same benq drive
he said he been doing it for a while and had a problem before with this errors etc so he asked some people and they said that if u change power thiny it will be fine ???

Thats completely made-up
#16
so u all think that he got my 360 and give me something else !!!!
Why what he would have from it ???

Yes.

Because he now has a more reliable 360 and you now have one that's more likely to RROD.

The newest revision of the motherboard is the best to date, less prone to failure, which is why he would have been keen to steal it

He sounds like a complete amateur

he would get an xbox360 that is less likely to get the red ring of death unlike the one he gave you.

As your original Power Brick didn't fit then that's all the proof you need.........he must have changed the innards to a older one. :thumbsup:

Depends on your current setup. You'll need a case opening tool (about £1 drom DX)

I think the latest version of Jungleflasher works with all onboard sata ports

You might need this - http://www.mrmodchips.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=553

If you've got a new drive

You only need tools if you have a liteon drive or if your sata port on your mobo is not VIA compatible (iprep software will tell you).

Case opening tool will help to prevent case from getting scratched. Otherwise use a screwdriver, You'll also need a special torx screwdriver (t9 I think)

He's telling big porky pies.........the 175w power brick you had would have been ideal and the most reliable as it was a falcon. He's nicked your falcon chipset and given you the an oldie.

He could have easily kept your drive in it but nicked your falcon mobo as well i'm afraid.
#34
if you remove the plastic shell of the 360, I believe there is a sticker on the bottom of the 360 which should have the corresponding serial to the case (plastic shell)
#35
You should be able to check your serial number in the system blade on your 360.

If it doesn't match the one on your case and your system was unopened before he took it to flash you have a way of proving to him that he has switched the insides.

so if he done it only difference is that now i have not Falcon mobo, and i get 3ring sooner ???
#37
system blade on your 360 do i need to open my 360 then ???
banned#38
no you dont need to open your xbox
im pretty sure its in the system info part of your system blade on the dashboard

and if they dont match demand your 360 back or your reporting him for modding systems,theft and copying games

he should soon cough it up
