    Ok here is XEXTool with my little batch.

    This will remove all checks on the default.xex so the game will play on all media.

    I will not upload the Default.xex, it takes 2 seconds to patch your one.

    :tongue:lace your default.xex in the same directory you extracted the files to & run the Patch xex.bat, transfer over the new default.xex done.

    Download

    I would also suggest disabling Dashlaunch plugins & Fakelive, since the game doesn't need it & it has caused issues with other games.

    so we have to put both files in the folder where disc 1 (or 2?) is in? and than launch it?
    and do we have to do that on pc or on jtag?

    Ok, what I done was exactly this.

    Put the disc 1 content in the correct location, ie, 0000000000000000/
    Put disc 2 in my games folder, I extracted the ISO first obviously.
    Game kept crashing my xbox Jtag, (above supported dashboard version)
    Patched disc 2's default.xex with the above tool.
    Transferred over to my Jtag, overwrote the original disc 2 default.xex
    Stared the game & no more crashing.

    I think you peeps have been dooped, with some rips since the disc 2 default.xex shouldn't ask you to insert anything or install anything.

    Disc 2 loads the game, disc one installs stuff.

    I got mine from xbox360iso.com before all the links went dead, but if worst comes to worst you only have 4 days left to wait.

    The above posts worked for me & that's all I can help with sorry.

    Make sure when you patch your default.xex it says it removed all checks, in the batch window & that there is a backup in the same directory.

    You should make a video tut on how to do this. Explaining it better.

    Why are you guys patching the xex file?

    Use an iso extractor on dvd 1. Copy the files to your xbox hdd HDD:Content/0000000 etc etc

    Use iso2god on dvd 2 and transfer the folder it creates to your xbox hdd. Game works fine...

    OK update, may have found the culprit well for me anyways xbdm if this is loaded by dashlaunch it will crash GTAV I added it & it crashes just after the R logo intro like before, removed it from the launch.ini & no more crashing :smile:

    if you have that loading on your JTag RGH remove it or disable it.

    Just going to test an unpatched .xex

    Yeah, removing said plugin stops the crashing, no need to patch the xex (I thought the kernel patches didn't require it anyways)

    Hi everybody, if your game crashes after the intro you need to
    1) make sure you have a live profile
    2) enable fakelive in dashlaunch.
    This fixed it for me :smile:
    P.S Thanks for the batch file OP great help.
