    How to rip an XBOX 360 ISO and convert it to Games on Demand (GOD) format

    THE PROGRAMS MAY SHOW UP AS TROJANS, PLEASE DISREGARD THAT. ITS JUST THE CODING THEY USED!
    Programs used for this tutorial:


    Xbox Image Browser v1.0 Build 0002
    Create ISO
    Iso2God v1.33


    Here are some updated programs:


    Iso2God v1.35

    Iso2God v1.36

    Here is a new version of Xbox Image Browser that is compatible with xgd3 games.
    Xbox Image Browser v2.9 Build 0350

    Step 1: Extract Contents of Scene Release ISO using Xbox Image Browser

    To extract the contents of the .ISO, we will use Xbox Image Browser.

    Run Xbox Image Browser.exe and select File-->Open Image File

    Select your XBOX 360 .ISO file. For this tutorial, we will use Madden NFL 2010.

    Right Click on the name of the .ISO and select extract


    [​IMG]


    Create a new folder to place the extracted files in and click OK.

    [​IMG]

    Once the files are extracted, go to the folder and delete the $SystemUpdate folder.

    Step 2: Create a new ISO for ISO2GOD using Create ISO


    To create a new .ISO file to use with ISO2GOD, we will use Create ISO

    Run Crear iso.exe.

    [​IMG]


    Select the folder from Step 1 for the Source Folder and select a location to save
    the new .ISO.

    [​IMG]


    Click Create Iso [​IMG]




    Step 3: Convert ISO to Games on Demand format using Iso2God


    Now, we will use Iso2God to convert the .ISO to Games on Demand (GOD) format.

    Run Iso2God.exe and select Add ISO
    [​IMG]


    Select the .ISO from Step 2 as the Image Location and
    create a new folder for the Output Location. The title
    details will automatically be generated by the program.
    [​IMG]


    The .ISO will now be placed in queue. You may add more .ISO files created from Step 2 or convert just one .ISO for now. [​IMG]

    Click Convert. The program will now convert all of the .ISO files in your queue. [​IMG]

    You now have successfully converted a full game rip to Games on Demand format. [​IMG][​IMG]Now, to play the game, just copy the folder created in step 3 (in this case 454108C6) to the hard drive on your JTAG XBOX 360 at this location:

    Hdd1:\Content\0000000000000000\

    Madden NFL 2010 for example, will be located:
    Hdd1:\Content\0000000000000000\454108C6

    Or Rename the Folder (in this case Madden 2010) and drag to this folder in your JTAG.
    Hdd1:\Content\GAMES\(Insert game here)


    Congrats! You have successfully converted an .iso to a GOD!Have fun!

    Nice tut. Looks like you put lots of time into this.
    Was hoping it wasn't for jtags but still very nice

    I don't mean to be rude, but do you even know what topic or forum you're in? And no, you can't get "banned" for downloading a demo because that's what that's there for, it's signed by microsoft to be used on the "STOCK" xbox, this topic is for people who want to get rips of full games onto their JTAG/RGH consoles. If you don't know what a JTAG/RGH is, then you don't have to worry about getting banned lol. You're good, and yes, you do see those numbers because that's how the xbox in general reads them...folder by folder til it gets to the .xex.

    Like I said, the demo worked because it's signed by microsoft, no one wants to "unlock" a demo because the game demos don't have the FULL files in them anyway. The full game would be around 8.5GB and the demos are always around 2GB.

    Hope this helped.

    I'm pretty sure you can store them on any type of HDD as long as there is enough space but I could be wrong

    I would suggest extracting the iso with Xbox Image Browser that way you can modify the xex for mods and such but yes it will work.
