a mod saying noobness and not referring to a noob, wow
I guess the cable powers the drive...
Ok so i got the jungleflasher guide PDF and wow is it intense...
But i guess what im asking is how do you hook up the drive to the computer.... sata port or ?? and how you power the drive!!!!
Sry for the noobness.... just want to do this right!
The Drive is powered by the 360, and linked to pc via a sata, only not all onboard sata connections work I had to buy a card with sata ports on to get my drive recgonised. Just hope your drive isnt a liteon 9x like mine was its a (edit) to do!
Ok what about what I read about the drive being open or closed and half opened.... and is there any danger in it being powered by the 360????

I flashed a benq (power sourced via the XBox and used a SATA cable to my PC). I had to disconnect/reconnect the power line in quick fashion in order to get it recognized/into vendor mode (this is in the jungle flasher manual). I didn't have to do that screwy thing you mention.
Well I'm hoping it will be easy.....

There's a new tool to make all of this easier, apparently you won't even need to connect the drive to a computer, called the Lizard.

There's also a new one coming out that will allow you to cennect it to your computer via USB.

I know nothing about either of these tools, but hope they might be of interest.
yeah if you want to get serious about the flashing.... Those are $$$
i will try the other's first and then see if i get "into" flashing drives if they are worth it!!!
Thanks for the info!!!
Yeah well im going to try with my mobo on my computer and then try to use the sata / usb bridge adapter i have...
then if that does not work well idk...
