There are 3 different ways you can mod your 360:

  • x360key USB loading (best option in our opinion)
  • Drive Flashing
  • JTAG hack  and Reset Glitch Hack (RGH)

Please read below for more details

x360Key - USB loading:

An awesome product from the lead developer of the WODE is the x360key, aka xk3y. It will allow you to play ISOs from a USB hard drive, instead of disc. The advantages are:

  • There is no wear and tear on the DVD drive, as you are bypassing it
  • Your whole collection in one spot, No changing discs, no nothing (think of an iPod for your 360)
  • No DVD drive modification keeps your DVD drive in original condition.
  • You can update the device yourself, no need to pay someone to update the device for you! <-- This is a BIG advantage over other type of modifications. It means no ongoing costs
  • Super fast software support for any new issues that arise.

You can read about it here, It is compatible with ALL fat models, and the Slim models list on the product page.

 

Ways to get a xk3y in your 360

  • In Melbourne? Come into our store and get it done on the spot! (please check stock status on website)
  • Elsewhere? Post in your console to us, we will mod it within 24 hours and post it back to you! You can choose this option on the xk3y product page
  • You can install it yourself, but keep in mind you do need your DVD drive key, and i you do not have the tools to extract that it can cost up to $130 or so of tools. So unless you are going to do a lot of machines, its cheaper for us to do it for you!

 

 

Drive Flashing:

There is a hardware chip on the Xbox DVD drive, that controls if you can play backup games or not. To enable a xbox 360 to play backups you need to flash your DVD drive, which involves the modder opening up your 360 and changing the software on the drive.

All Fat consoles are moddable. Since Slims are still being made not all Slim models are. Its not super easy to tell which DVD drive you have inside your slim, but a couple of factors can help. Most of the drives are Liteons, there is one type of Hitachi Click here to see how to check by ejecting the DVD drive tray). Australia is behind with stock types, so as of August 2011 all stock is still 9504/2702, 0225 or 0401. Unfortunately the slim drives are all WRITE protected. So we have to do some crazy stuff to write to it (see video here). Considering the price of flashing a Slim 360, and the fact that you need to consistantly update your flash, its cheaper and better to get a x360Key!

Disadvantages: DVD drive flashing is NOT a once off. Everytime Microsoft changes special protection etc, you have to flash the DVD drive again. Opening the console everytime. A soltution like the x360Key allows the user to update the device without opening the console at all, which means all updates are free and easy. Drive flashing = cheaper initially, but annoying and more costly in the long run.

 

Ways to get your Drive Flashed by us

  • In Melbourne? Come into our store and get it done on the spot!
  • Elsewhere? Post in your console to us, we will mod it the day we get it, and post it back for free!
  • You can buy tools like the x360 USB Pro, or the Maximus Lizard, and you can flash them, and update yourself. Please keep in mind the limitation of writing with Slim xboxs!

 

 

JTAG / RGH - Homebrew hack:

Some would argue that this is best solution for offline play. It allows full access to the consoles hardware and software.

Both hacks have identical results for the end user. JTAG hacks have instant boot times, like a normal console. RGH boot times vary from 5 seconds to 1 minute. We try our best to optimise these times and can usually get every Phat console to boot under 10 seconds, and every slim under 20 seconds. There are some consnoles that are fussy, and long boot times cannot be avoided

You can ONLY do the JTAG hack if you have a fat original model console that was made on or BEFORE June 15, 2009. AND if the dashboard version is 2.0.7371 (you can check in the settings) or less. This means you haven't updated the console through a game or through xbox live since late 2009.

The Reset Glitch Hack (RGH) is compatible with a LOT more consoles. It is not compatible with XENONs (see this picture for the best indication of your motherboard type) which are the oldest 360s. It is also not compatible with Corona motherbaords on slims, just Trinity! The latest slims made around September 2011 and after are Corona, you can check for sure by looking at the back of the console and checking the amount of Amps the motherboard uses. 10.83A is Trinity, this is good! 9.6A is Corona, and this is not doable. The dashboard version currently does not matter, but might in the future. If your dashboard is over 2.0.14599 please let us know.

 

Advantages:

  • Running anyone program someone creates. i.e. Custom dashboards, emulators, media players etc
  • Region Free gaming. 360 discs and games from Harddrive ignore the BS region locks that exist in retail consoles
  • Running games from external harddrives
  • Ripping games from your 360, no extra hardware needed
  • Any protection from Microsoft is disabled from a software level, which means these consoles are pretty much untouchable

Disadvantages:

 

  • No xbox live, at all
  • With the RGH, console boot times can vary from 5 seconds to 1.5 minutes. We try out hardest to optimise these times, however we have a time limit of how many hours we will spend on the console to try an get it to boot fast. Some consoles are just fussy and won't consistantly boot quickly.
  • This hack is NOT for noobs -- because...
  • The custom dashboard that runs unsigned code is specific to YOUR console. This means you CANNOT do normal upgrades via disc/internet anymore. A normal update will screw the console up. So when you want to update (and you WILL need to update atleast twice a year for compatiblity with new games) you will need to compile a dashboard using CPU key and your NAND (you can extract these 2 files from your console) and then flash it onto your console. If you mess up this process the NAND will be corrupt and someone (probably us right?) will need to manually solder into your consnole again to reflash it. Updating is not a super hard process if you like readng a lot but the bottom line is, unless you want to freeze your console on the dashboard we hack it on, and not play any newer games -  THIS HACK IS NOT FOR MAINSTREAM CUSTOMERS, enthusiasts only. We are happy to update consoles for people at a cost...but if you are not in Melbourne this becomes very annoying for you!

 

Ways to get your console JTAG / RGH by us

  • In Melbourne? Come into our store and get it done! The hack is not easy for us to do, so you will most likely need to leave your console overnight. 
  • Elsewhere? Post in your console to us, we will mod it and post it back
  • You can buy tools  to do it yourself if you want. like the Nand-X and the Coolrunner. The Nand-X is a 1 for many device. The Coolrunner is needed for every consnole you glitch! Please note that limited support is provided due to how hard the hack is, if you want to DIY, that includes you doing your own research.
