Hello guys,

i just got my Slim flashed today and when i was trying to play a burned game it told me that it was unable to do so until i update the system…

Right now the Dashboard in my slim is 2.0.12625.0

My question is, if i update to the latest one, will it still play burned games??

my slim is from october 2010… can it be reflashed?

if not, how can i play burned games with that dashboard?

Any comment is most welcome…

Thanks in advance…

if you update your dashboard it will reflash the dvd drive to update your stock fw and that will overwrite LT so you won’t be able to play backups. plus it will lock the spi. which means your drive may not be able to be flashed again back to LT very easily. whoever flashed your drive should have told you all about this. it was irresponsible to flash someone’s drive and not mention that there would be an issue updating. they should have been able to tell right away that you had an outdated firmware, and let you know that new games would not work, and that you can’t go online without it asking you to update. i would go back to whoever helped you out and tell them your situation and see if they can do an updated drive. until then you can only play offline 11th wave games or older, or retail discs.

Can you please explain me how the unlocked PCB for the dvd drive works?

would it be easier if i buy one of those and install it on my slim’s drive?

you would need equipment to be able to read the firmware from your original drive and write to the unlocked pcb. if you buy that you should be able to take it to the person who flashed your drive before. otherwise you need to buy something else to do it yourself.
