all depends on if you want to burn and run backup discs or if you want to run iso files off an external hard drive. both run the same risks for online play. if you want to run discs you need to have your drive flashed with custom firmware. if you want to run iso files then you need should get an xkey. ive done both and the best in my opinion is the xkey. check the link.

xk3y

You'd have to buy the xkey first.

Xbox 360: Slim untouched with a faked 320 GB harddrive for XBL, phat with LT 3.0, played Halo early, so going on live would be an instand ban, also with a faked 320 GB harddrive
PS3: Untouched 160 GB Slim, 60 GB Fat with latest Rogero and 160 GB internal harddrive.
PSVita: hardly ever play it
GameCube: Black with a Viper chip installed. With gameboy player. Trying to get a Wavebird controller.

i know that but i was wanting to know what all it intells before i drop alot of money it is that xkey the only thing i have to buy or is there more items i need.it i know alot about android i make apps and root phones but never touched an xbox other than fixing the rrd and playing lol im just looking for a write up to get me started

I personally don't recommend the xkey, as you already said, it's a lot of money you'd have to drop into it, especially now that you don't need a specific burner for burning games anymore. You also need the tools to get your drive key off your drive, on a Phat that's actually pretty easy.
I personally recommend the drive flash, go to http://jungleflasher.net/downloads.html and download the jungleflasher tutorial, it tells you how to identify your drive and what you have to do to flash it. If you have a lite-on drive, tell us, there is an easier way of flashing that as the one described in the JF tutorial.

idk i have done some reading on the xkey and is kinda exactually wat im looking for and fairly easy to install i just dont like the price tag but link does this come with the drive key and say i have a game can i rip it to the external hdd

It does not come with the drive key (it can't). Your drive has a unique key that has to match the one stored on your console's motherboard. That key you'll have to program the xkey with.
By the way, that was the last spoonfeeding I did.

Eisherz had already told you where to start. Read the jungleflasher tutorial to know how to identify the drive make (Samsung, Toshiba, BenQ, or Lite-on), without having to take the 360 apart (yet). That is where you START. Please have a better attitude the next time you post. You might get more help, and more respect.

There's a thing called Stickies, that would have been a great place to start. The forum search also would have been. The way you did it just showed how lazy you are, and that you didn't even bother reading the forum rules.
