    Hello everyone,

    I have found a working way to mod with the NXE.


    Requirements:
    2 XBOX 360s (1 with NXE and 1 without)
    Memory Card.

    First step, Fire up the 360 without the NXE, change the map in forge and mod it like you normally would . Put the map back onto the 360 with out the update, start up Halo 3 and change the mod's description and name. Copy it to the memory card and then to the NXE xbox. This should work, it did for me.

    Yep that would work, you could always use your hdd to, and remove the update, than put it back on when you use your nxe 360.

    You can't remove the update.

    The update is in the firmware.
    My original tutorial was going to just involve an other hard drive, but that won't work.

    No, I just tried. I thought it was a soft upgrade too.

    He means remove the update before moving it to the xbox without the new dash so it won't upgrade it.

    how did you "find" this? you should be able to use your head, oh, the KVs are banned on the NXE? what can i do... oh maybe have it resigned with a non banned one, where am i going to get that... oh right, another xbox! who hasnt thought of that the day of NXE detail were released,it should be common knowledge, plus who wants a second xbox just to do pointless Halp CON mods? not the majority of the community ill tell you that... :/

    Did you bother to dump your firmware? No, most of us don't want to.
    I posted what I found, if someone else found it, fine, whatever.

    The box I use for resigning has the RRoD and I did the Xclamp mod to it.
    It still freezes occasionally, and I have to share my power brick and VGA cable, but it cost $35, whatever.

    True that.

    Anyway, this method does work, as the files get resigned using that other xbox's keys, however, if you don't have another xbox, this method is kinda eh. $200 for another box ain't worth it in my opinion.

    A 360 with the RRoD costs less then $75 on ebay. The xclamp mod or blow-torching the CPU and GPU clears up the problem.
