Firmware Mod Old Shape Consoles (PHAT Consoles)

All makes and models of X360 drives can be modified. The firmware on the drive is replaced with a modified version which enables the console to recognise your backed-up games. This does not affect or alter the region code of the console, therefore region-specific still applies.

How to check which drive is in your console.

The faceplate must be removed from your console. Look into the oval shaped hole on the front of the drive to check the colour of the tray switch wires. Each model has different coloured wires and this is how we can tell the drives apart.
