So I got out of the Xbox scene because I started playing World of Warcraft, and lucky for me, I never logged on live over the summer, so my kernel is still 7371, or 7173 I forget which, but either way perfectly hackable. My motherboard is a Xenon, and quite old (so old in fact I believe the timing attack would still work) I understand I have to dump my NAND, but I need an LPT port on my PC, and I don't have an LPT port. However, a quick eBay search renders many USB to IDE adapters that are all very cheap, and also some more expensive (barely) PCI to LPT cards. I don't want to waste money, and I want to get this right, so I want to know what to get that will work with dumping my NAND.
From what I remember PCI to LPT cards do not work with nand pro.
Something to do with the address of the card (Mind you there have been updates to nandpro that I haven't been following).
But seriously, either get a cygnos chip and do everything over the built in usb.
Or get an Olimex LPC-H2148, either way, much easier/faster/better than any lpt method you will find.
Here's what you will need from sparkfun to get the Olimex up and running:http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=676
and something like this to flash the Olimex itself:http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=449
