I want to update my lt+ on my hitachi 79 drive but i don’t have access to an X360USB PRO/Lite. So i was wondering if i can connect my xbox to my computer using SATA. I found out that you would need a specific VIA chipset; specifically Via 6421.. well I have a Via VT6307.

My question is: can I flash my drive using this VIA chipset and the drivers from Via 6421?

yes many onboard sata chipsets work and with phat drives easy bro. have a go at it if you don’t already have a backup of the orig. firmware click dump drive first then when it completes flash it. remember if you already have cfw on the drive then you must return it to stock before updating it to lt+ 2.0 or is it 2.01 neway good luck

p.s no need to change drivers in most cases onboard will work no prob. cant use those 6421 unless u have 6421.

Yeah I have the board and probe now but, originally I used to just plug directly into a sata port. Just follow the guide make sure the port i/o driver is properly installed (it will not detect the drive without that driver installed). As said above most on board sata chips works. If you cant get it to recognize the drive then you’ll need a new sata card but, Try onboard first.

Also I have flashed numerous drives and I never revert to stock first. it is recommended to be safe so ymmv but, I have never personally had an issue. Download latest jungle flasher set and properly read instructions.
