Xbox 360 Modding: Useful Information


Hey and welcome to my thread with important links/information on Xbox 360 Modding! This thread is designed for people both new and experienced, and is hopefully a good place to find what you may need in your journey through 360 modding. The goal of this thread is simple: To provide a good number of links to things you may find handy such as guides, files/programs, tutorials, pictures, etc. I tried to set it up so that the things here are what you might call "essential".


Here you can find things like the latest version of dashlaunch, xeBuildGUI, etc, and references like the Team Xecuter forums directions on installing the Coolrunners. Just take a look under the section of mods you are interested in and you may find something you need. I will try and keep this as updated as possible and add more links as I think of them! Feel free to report downed links or outdated info, or suggest links!

Note: If a program does not have a version next to it that is because its link is to a download page so the link will always be to the latest version as the site updates their downloads.

How to Update A JTAG or RGH Console - A great guide on how to update your NAND modded console to the latest dash.

Xecuter R-JTAG Support - The official TX sub-forum for general R-JTAG information.

Programs/Tools/Files:
Dashlaunch (3.10) - A fantastic plugin for JTAG/RGH/R-JTAG consoles that is pretty much standard these days. It allows you to boot right to an .xex (i.e. FSD) and has some other pretty useful features.

Freestyle Dash 3 (Rev 775) - A great dashboard replacement that is organized, cool looking, and customizable. Also pretty standard.
Simple 360 NAND Flasher - An incredibly useful tool that allows you to write/read your 360s NAND from the console itself.
List of Emulators for the 360
[Click here to view this link]
- A simple file explorer with a few additional features. Was mainly used before FSD became popular. Comes in LIVE container and ISO forms.
360MPGUI - A multi-tool program with many features. Great for extracting ISOs.
[Click here to view this link] - A tool that automatically connects you to the xbins FTP. A great resource for programs, emulators, etc.
xeBuildGUI (2.091) - A tool that allows you to create NAND images for your console (JTAG/RGH/R-JTAG and retail). It is used a lot and very easy to use.
J-Runner (Beta 3 Build 1) - Another tool that allows you to create NAND images for your console (JTAG/RGH/R-JTAG and retail), but also works directly with Team Xecuter hardware such as the NAND-X and the DemoN. Also very popular and easy to use. It also can self update.

360 Flash Tool (0.97) - A great tool for working with NAND images, KVs, etc.

DVD Drive Mods

Guides/Tutorials/References:
Team Xecuter JungleFlasher Tutorials - The official TX sub-forum that has a tutorial on how to flash every single drive. The only negative is that it assumes you are using their equipment which might not be the case. Still very helpful though because it shows the process of using JungleFlasher, and is by far the best at doing so.
How to Easily Identify Your Xbox 360 DVD Drive - This only covers phat drives.

Programs/Tools/Files:
Jungle Flasher - Pretty much the sole program used for flashing drives.
Kprobe (2.5.2) - A program that is used to test the quality of your burns. Only works with Liteon Drives.
agbx360 - The program that stealth patches your games. Used all the time.
ImgBurn - A common program that pull use to burn their games.

Xbox 360 Backup Creator (2.9) - A decent program with many ISO/Disk tools.
C4E’s BurnerMAX Payload Tool (0.15) - A program that allows drives other than an iHas 124B to burn XGD3 Games.
k3y Forums - The offical xk3y forums. Useful for getting firmware updates and support.
iXtreme LT+ 3.0 Download - The latest iXtreme modded firmware.


USB/HDD Transfer/Save Game Mods

Guides/Tutorials/References/Files:
The Possibilities of USB/Transfer Cable Modding - An overview of USB/HDD Transfer modding.

Programs/Tools:
[Click here to view this link] - A good simple program that can browse FATX partitions (i.e. Xbox 360 Hard Drives, MU, and USB MU).
Modio - A well known USB modding program. You can browse HDDs and USB MUs with it, easily move and resign/rehash saves, and download pre-modded save games.
[Click here to view this link] - Similar to Modio but with some better functionality. However the better parts costs money in the form of a membership.
HxD - A pretty good free HEX editor.

Never tried to Mod my Xbox and I Know risk are are present, but is it like the PS3 Jailbreak where there is sort of a restart. You can go back and fully take off the jailbreak on the PS3 and Then sign back to PlayStation Network can I do it on my Xbox offline then when I'm finished playing a lot of games restart and take the jailbreak off without any error to conflict my Main Xbox Account....

The reason I'm picking up jail-breaking my Xbox now to be honest I want to play the somewhat newer Xbox 360 Games for uploading on my YouTube gaming channel. Don't Judge ! Will doing this brick my Xbox offline? Can I restart and not lose my account? and if caught will I be punished on Next-Gen.

There is no "jailbreak" for the xbox 306 its called an SMC hack also known and jtag/rjtag & rgh.

If you do the SM|C hack and use it OFFLINE you will not be banned and yes it is reverse-able
(as long as you install everything correctly and don't mess up)

OR you could install a "demon" kit which will let your choose if the xbox will boot up SMC hacked OR normal i.e not modded and live safe

As for your account there is ALWAYS a risk when modding it, however you can use your main account on a SMC hacked xbox 360 but you have to use it in a certain way i.e load up a game with a different account signed in then when the game is loaded sign in with your main account, the reason for this is that both the Xex menu and Freestyle dash modify you account in a way which Microsoft will detect.

Been doing this for a long time and haven't been banned yet!

If you still want to do the SMC hack i really suggest you read oblivioncth's tut on it here, its what i used to do mine :smile:

If anyone could guide me to a step by step guide to what to do after modding. I mean once you have downloaded a torrent from the internet what do you do. I need to save it to my USB hard disk dedicated for XBOX.
