    It has been along time sense I have checked the mod news on xbox 360 so I'm not sure what is out there for me any more.

    First of all I am not sure were to start, I have downloaded jftut1.4.4.pdf on this site but I'm confused at the moment. So many sites are out of date.

    I noticed some sites state that you can put back ups on "usb/external hard-drives" now and if true I would like to do this instead of burning dvds. If its not possible then dvds will have to do,also can I use ftp to back my up games?.

    My xbox is the old white not modern at all, not sure if it had 3red lights if it does ill fix it first.

    What do I need to get started? ,could some one point me to a good guide or give me my options please.
    Thanks

    what you have read about is either the reset glitch hack, or an optical drive emulator. both are capable of playing games off a usb hard drive. however both have their advantages and disadvantages, the reset glitch hack(RGH) accomplishes everything the older jtag hack does, you get hombrew, the ability to mod your games, rip games directly onto your hard drive, and play games from an external hard drive, while sacrificing your ability to play on xbox live. An optical drive emulator such as the xk3y will allow you to play your games from an external hard drive only, while keeping xbox live and all the benifits of that come with it, this hack is preferred for inexperienced modders because it requires little to no soldering (you may have to solder depending on your drive model to obtain a full dump of its firmware).

    That only is true for slims. On a phat white Xbox 360 no matter what drive you have you can get the key without soldering. If you realy want to play Xbox 360 drives off a harddrive and are not interested in homebrew at all the Xk3y or similar devices is in my oppinion the better choice, the hardware is cheaper than the one needed for an RGH and you don't need all the skills needed for RGH (soldering, a little programming...).
    On the other hand, if the box really had a RROD (red ring of death), I wouldn't put too much efford in it anymore. A RROD can never be fully repaired, atleast not without higher costs than a new (used) box would cost (I am sure nobody does a reballing for under 50 US$).

    thank you for that clarification, i have never used the xk3y, or any ode for that matter.

    when i have looked at the price it was around $70 but that was some time ago.

    home-brew does interest me however I can live with out it ;).
    Xbox live not really needed for me, so losing it does not matter, for my demos the ps3 will do fine or the or the other xbox360 which i have.

    OK I just popped its face off, looked in the hole and saw a white wire and blank space which tells me benq yes ?

    I would like to try and flash this console with out buying anything as i just moved housed and money is very tight, possible?. Guessing that I can use the xbox360 to power the drive while its hooked to my motherboard which has 6-sata sockets on it.

    does the glitch hack(RGH) require me to buy anything ?

    in order to do the RGH you will need to buy a glitch chip (such as the xecuter coolrunner) and some device to read and write your nand (nand-x), and a device to program your coolrunner. if you buy a coolrunner and a nand-x it will cost you about £42.53. so if money is a problem flashing might be a good option.

    you might run into some problems depending on your sata chipset, i saw a thread a while back with chipsets that work with xbox 360 drives, ill post the link if i find it. kinect dash will work fine, i would recommend updating first though. best of luck to you.

    that is always good news, you might want to look into the 12V fan mod while you are at it. it should help prevent any future RROD.

    you should be fine updating to the latest dash, if you do plan on eventually doing the RGH, i would check before updating in the future, but for now you should be fine.

    With flashing you can't play games off the harddrive, you have to burn them, so ftp is out of the question. Also above you mentioned a guy repairing boxes for 60 Pounds, does he do a reball or a reflow? A reflow is just crap, keeps your box alive for a month or so, you just heat the chips up with a heatgun to temporarily close some of the microcracs causing the RROD. A reballing is completely desoldering and resoldering the GPU and the CPU.
    For backing up originals you need either a DROM 6316 or an original Xbox 360 drive, both flashed with 0800 firmware, the DROM has to be modified a little, but you don't need extra power sources for it. This is for reading them. Just for burning the games (I don't mention the d-word) you need one of the burners compatible with burner max (google that, you will find a list).

    Not sure what he does but any hows I have a new plan instead near bottom of this post.

    Successful the working Xbox360 is now flashed, however i have not made any back ups yet because ill have to read up how ;)
    Thanks for all the help everyone ;)

    New plan/idea i have a old xbox with 3 redlights.
    Can i use it's dvd-drive because there still is power yes? and link it to my pc in-order to backup my games. Doing so would allow me to close my flashed xbox360 and keep it close until it needs a update if it ever does?.

    yes you will, i think that the 0800 firmware is a little outdated but it should work fine.

    I guess ill do that tomorow then ;)
    i got file with this note, i think this is the correct .bin file, note attached.
    does Samsung flash similar to BenQ ?


    Code:
    Team Jungle Presents IXtreme 1.6 0800 firmware for Benq, Samsung and Liteon drives
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IXtreme fw for Benq, Samsung and Liteon drives!
    
    
    Features
    --------
    
    -Common API designed for easier application use!
    
    -Support for SS V2! 
    
    -Direct 0800 mode for game dumping including SS v2! 
    
     This firmware is =NOT FOR USE IN A CONSOLE= and is provided 
     with the intended use of being in a dedicated "ripping" drive.
    
     This means: 
     	a. Does not need your DVD key, 
    	b. Does not need spoofing as another drive,
     	c. Does not need to use the tray half open and
    	d. Does not need to use the activate.iso to use this firmware on the pc.
    
    
    More Info
    ---------
    
    SS v2 supports multiple timing samples for challenges type 5 and 7, storing them in the SS. This is a pre-requisite for SS v3 which has support for the so called AP2.5 check. Since this has never been used or may never be used by MS we will adopt a wait and see approach and continue to monitor for its usage.
