Question about modding an old 360
i was thinking about upgrading my current xbox to one of the new ones and modding my old launch day 20GB 360. anyway ive read a lot on the subject and it appears that the only way to do it is to flash the drive using a SATA port on a pc. since i only have a laptop and a Hp touchsmart PC (set up pretty much the same was as a laptop) this isnt really an option for me. i was wondering if there is a chip or something else i could buy(prefer sodderless) to avoid this step or am i pretty much stuck looking for an older PC?
Edit: with some research i found out i can use a PCMIA VIA card with VIA VT6421 Chipset to flash the drive now i just need to know exactly what tools i need to do all this i hate a lite-on drive. any chance someone could help me out with that?

First if you have an old dash xbox 360 you might be able to Jtagg it
jtagging has the most features and can download dlc for free
Modding a lite-on is one of the hardest
Xecuter CK3 Probe V2 for Liteon 74850 83850 93450 (No-Solder Addon) - Team Xecuter - $17.99
your going to need a probe you can buy one or make one
The easiest way would be to check craigslist to see if theres any local modders
and ask them a bunch of questions to see if there legit
personally i will never try to mod another drive (i lost the drive key and now it plays dvds).
