Well I'm VERY new to hacking/modding Xbox 360, and recently discovered I could download ISOs for the Xbox 360 and play them. However I have also learned that I require a jtag/flash/or some other type of mod to the Xbox. Well I was wondering if there's anyway I can get my Xbox to play an ISO off of a flash drive without having to actually open it up and disassembling/reassembling my Xbox 360 console (Preferably free if there's a way :tongue:). I already have the ISOs of the games I want, and a USB to put them on. I don't know what other information might be needed for this so if there's a way and you need more information please request it. I have the new black xbox slim (with the button you don't have to push). I haven't actually opened up the machine yet, but if that's needed I can. Thank you for any help :smile:.

Hate to be so blunt, but it's impossible. Completely impossible. Even with a JTAG or RGH you can't just throw an ISO on a flash drive and be like, Xbox, play this! There's more to it. But with the most basic of Xbox hacks, the flashed DVD drive, you can only use burned games, as in on DVDs you buy at a store and burn yourself. You're going to have to look into JTAGing or RGHing your console if you want to do something like this.

RGH stands for 'Rest Glitch Hack', it's the alternative to the JTAG hack. These hacks allow the console to run unsigned code, letting you run homebrew applications and more. It also allows you to play games off the hardrive. Both require hardware modifications and are not easy to perform for the average beginner. If you're only looking to played burnt ISO's, then I recommend you go with flashing the drive. Main reason is you will still be able to connect to LIVE and play online, whereas both the JTAG/RGH hack doesn't allow you online and will get you an instant ban.

Actually you can just put a ISO on a USB and tell your Xbox to play it. With a Xkey you can just plug the USB into the remote and play it.

What's an Xkey and how would that work? Does this also require modding to the motherboard/other **** of the Xbox? I'm looking for the easiest way and how you stated this this sounds like the easiest way. How could I get an Xkey? Thank you for any help.

Well, it's basically a device that you can put ISO games on and play them with out having to burn a disc. You would have to open your Xbox to install it though. If you are looking to mod games with ISO's you could just hotswap. Which is when you take a modded disc and swap it with a retail version of the disc during loading. This version of modding doesn't require any modifications to your Xbox. Just taking it apart and swapping the discs. If you are looking to burn or play games for free without buying the game then having your disc drive flashed or getting an Xkey would be the answer.

Depends on what country your in as to where to buy but shouldn't be hard to find a online store in your country with a google search as for installing I'm sure I've seen tuts on here and there are loads of vids on the net like youtube. Ill have a look for a tut on here and post if I find one shortly.
