    Hey everyone, I'm switching over to PS4 when the time comes and Im about to buy a house. In my future man cave I really want a DIY arcade and I cant think of a better way to go about it....

    I have been a long time LIVE user since I first bought this system and now I dont feel the need to worry about being banned or whatever, especially since I really just want MAME and other emulators on my console. I know im on the latest firmware and I know that is not a good thing, but what are my options to achieve emulation on my 360??

    Thanks everyone!

    RGH is the only option, and if you don't want to solder, get someone else to help you.

    Yes, a RGH is still possible, even though I would not recommend it on an old non-HDMI one. I read somewhere that they are too unstable, when it comes to booting times and so on. Also you know that you can't go on LIVE anymore with a RGHd box? Just asking, because you wrote that you aren't too concerned about a ban.

    He is talking about stability of the machine itself

    I was responding to that statement.

    I did some further reading, the instability has to do with xenon. Boot times can be as bad as 24 hours lol. I dont currently know what system I have until I get home from work

    although I see where you are going, non hdmi first gen would totally be Xenon. I appreciate the link and I pray when I get home that im terrible with math and my system is a 2008 model, (I highly doubt this though!) thanks again

    The power plugs are different between opus and xenon. I provided the chart so you can see what board you have.
