In a run of Xbox 360 related content I’ve been working on, I decided to try my hand at making a 16D5S drive flashing tutorial. I’ve done it once years ago, I can do it again now, right? Oh how that almost didn’t happen… This video is originally what was meant to be a tutorial, turned into a giant retrospective lovenote to my love for the Xbox 360 modding scene, and covering the hurdles I jumped through to finally get an unlocked board to take the firmware it desired. About one month has passed between recording this video and releasing it. More coming down the pipeline in terms of tutorial related content… Including coverage of this drive board so this lost art could hopefully be passed on!
