I just ordered the x360 usb pro from team x and I have a few questions related to modding so that I can have stuff set up before I actually start.

1. Can I install xex without a jtag?
2. Is it possible to load up xex onto an external to boot up games from that external drive?
3. If I can't is there an alternative way to boot up games from an external drive?

I ask this because I saw a youtube video from 3 months ago that shows someone booting xex and games from a HDD but I can't find a tutorial on how he did it so i'm skeptical...and decided to ask the experts.

1. No (yes if you have a devkit)
2. No, unless you have a jtag or devkit

Jtags and Devs allow the xbox to run unsigned XeX's

By Devkit you mean?
Also what about question #3?

By devkit he means Xbox Development Kit. It allows you to do all the things you can do on a jtag and more. You can't boot up standard xexs from any drive unless you convert the game to GoD (Games on Demand) which allows you to play the game without the disc. I wouldn't recommend getting a devkit for modding though, as its primary use is for developing games.

Either get a JTAG or an ODE. An ODE emulates the DVD Drive of an XBOX allowing you to boot ISOs straight from an HDD or something along those lines. They have recently become popular and people claim they are "live safe" but I wouldn't trust it yet.
