Hello to everybody
i have an XB Slim with LTPlus-9504.bin and Dash 2.0.12611.
Can I update to dashboard 14699? Around the web i read that new dashboard, write-lock the drive ( so, i could not upgrade
my drive anymore), and remove LTPlus-9504.bin.
Thanks.

drive is not locked until update 13146 dash so ur drive is still a unlocked 9504 if u update it will turn ur drive into a 0272 and sum turn to 0225. both will be locked . so in short u need to flash to lt+3.0 but there is know 3.0 for 9504′s not sure if updating from usb will lock and flash to stock . read up and u might beable to get around it if u use the usb method but as i said read up might not be the case. good luck

it will flash the drive to stock so you can’t just put 3.0 and do the update hoping it will lock 3.0 on there. you need to find out whether your drive is a winbond or mcix because after the update you will need to either do the kamikaze hack or use a sputnik unlocker depending on your drive. the other option is for you to borrow another modded slim drive, put your 9504 fw onto it and use it in your xbox for the update. then afterwards you can just flash your 9504 to the newest 3.0 and then lock it yourself. since the other drive would be hacked already you can just unlock it again and put it back where it came from with the firmware it had. saves you the trouble of having to hack your current drive if you know someone who already has.

Thanks for your help.
what do you think about xkey360? Can i avoid to do all the things suggested above with it?
I don’t know if my drive is a winbond or mxic, but for sure i don’t want do the kamikaze hack….. :-)
It’s really KAMIKAZE way!!!! :-) , so i should just pray that my drive is mxic.

even if you can’t hack your drive you can buy a replacement circuit board and it would still be cheaper than the xkey.

Hi QuickMythril, thanks for your answer.
What is a replacement circuit board?? Are you talking about a new MB?? I don’t think so….
…Let me know, because, now with my XB i can use just a few titles, but i would like to use the newest, and i don’t know how can put a new dashboard e flash again the drive, without “destroy”, my XB.

not the xbox motherboard, just the circuit board for the dvd drive. again if you have a mxic then the hack is a lot easier than trying to do some precision drilling into a 1 cm x 1 cm chip. as long as you can do some basic soldering it shouldn’t be too bad. if you have a winbond, it’s worth trying unless you want to just sell the original board. you have to check out the chip when you take apart the dvd drive, it will say Mediatek and have either an 03 for mxic or an 05 for winbond at the beginning of the bottom line.

are you talking about MATRIX PCB BOARD or XECUTER PCB BOARD?
maybe it’s a great alternative!!! Do you know these board? reading aroung the forum i understood that with this board i ‘ll don’t need to open anymore the XB for next update? Is it true?
How can i do that? Is there some cable (maybe usb) that come out from the board?
Thanks for your help and for your patience

i believe the matrix and xecuter boards are basically the same thing: a replacement for slim drives. i think the matrix has an extra piece that you attach to the outside of the drive. this just allows you to lock/unlock the spi for reflashing without opening the dvd drive, but you still have to open the xbox. the dvd drive only has 4 phillips screws so it doesn’t really seem worth the extra convenience, plus i doubt we’ll have to reflash again too often now after LT+ 3.0. i think the xecuter board is about $70, a microsoft stock unlocked 9504 is $90, but you can get an MCIX board that can be unlocked with just a resistor if you have some basic soldering skills for $55.
