About IsoMenu
----------------------
IsoMenu implements a MixedMedia style menu system. XKey generates a virtual ISO in memory that represents the USB Mass Storage devices attached to your XKey.

To Use
-Enable IsoMenu (see xkey.cfg below)
-Start your system as normal
-Once the Dash is on screen and HDD(s) have been recognised, eject the empty DVD drive. XKey will autoload the IsoMenu
-You may then use the XBox in Dash browser to navigate to the desired ISO. This is currently found under 'Video Library', 'Current Disc'.
-Once desired ISO is selected you will see 'ISO Selected, open tray to proceed'
-Eject the IsoMenu. XKey will autoload the desired ISO

Returning to the IsoMenu
-Eject the current game ISO. XKey will autoload the IsoMenu

Note:
You may select more than one game using the IsoMenu but it is the last game selected that will be autoloaded. XKey detects the user selections by observing which sectors are read from the IsoMenu by the XBox.The Xbox is caching data read from XKey the first time a directory is selected. The data is not reread if a directory is subsequently reselected.

This means that once a game has been selected it cannot be reselected. You can see this with a simple test:

Select Game A
Select Game B
Eject IsoMenu => Game B loads

Select Game A
Select Game B
Select Game A
Eject IsoMenu => Game B loads

Warning:
Unplugging USB Mass Storage devices while the IsoMenu is running or loading the IsoMenu while plugging Mass Storage devices may give unpredictable results

xkey.cfg
------------
The xkey.cfg file is used to configure current and future XK feature, it is copied from a USB Mass Storage device to internal SD in much the same way as updates are copied. An update and change in xkey.cfg can be combined by placing all three files in the root of a USB Mass Storage device.

The IsoMenu is controlled from xkey.cfg. To enable the IsoMenu create an xkey.cfg file in the root of your USB Mass Storage device, inside the xkey.cfg file add the line

MENUISO=Y

To enable the IsoMenu OR

MENUISO=N

To disable the IsoMenu.

Then plug the USB Mass Storage device into xkey and update XK as usual.

i'm loving it. i can now turn on my xbox. while sitting down in my chair, i hit the x button on my controller to open the disc tray. i then go to 'Video Library', 'Current Disc'. and there are all my games. i no longer need to be up by my xbox and use the remote. i choose the game. go back to where it said "disc tray is closed". hit the x button, it then says closing disc tray, and my game loads. i <3 Team xK3y

i would highly recommend buying it from here:
http://www.modchipsdirect.com/x360key-xbox-360-usb-loader.html
their still doing their deal so it's only $104
i've seen it on other sites selling for as much as $145
and their customer service is great. if you have any problems, they will help you back and reply to e-mails in a reasonable time period

and absolutely over flashing. with flashing, you have to buy the dvd's and always update. with this tool, it's extremely easy to update. and you can't brick it. bricking a dvd drive means your phucked. bricking this, you just have to re-format the sd card, and put the files back in. just a easy download will get you the files and your good to go. and as with this update, i can be across the room with a hdd full of games hooked up to my xbox. and i can start my xbox and have the whole library of games right there.

It's safer than an flashed drive (CFW) at the moment, because it is emulating original firmware (OFW) so the read speeds and checks are normal and not modified. Also MS I'm sure will add something, but the firmware of the xKey is always being updated. I love mine.

ISO menu was copied from Wasabi. Don't expect that feature to work for too long, as the Twist Control dash will ruin that setup.

More than likely it would be patched by then because of the new fall dashboard.
