    Please bump and/or sticky this post as it will cut down on alot of duplicate posts. Please reply with any changes or additional info you have.

    With the release of the latest xtreme firmwares for the XBox360 it is now possible to download and play full games on all versions of XBox360. You should only download and burn backups of games you already own. I'm not taking any blame if you get arrested, fined, or deported.

    [bold]Needed Tools:[/bold]
    * XBox 360 w/ XTreme Firmware Update
    * DVD+R Dual Layered Blank DVD
    * Burner Capable Of Burning Dual Layered DVDs
    * CloneCD
    * XBOX360 SS Merger 1.5o from here.

    First your going to download your games from wherever you get your stuff. I personally use newsgroups, it seems to be the fastest and most reliable source for getting anything. You need to check the game first to see what kind of rip it is. Straight rips of the games don't work yet so you need to find the ones that can be patched, or if your lucky already patched. This tutorial will show you how to patch the games if needed. The easiest way to check what kinda rip is to check the .nfo file that comes with almost every game.

    [bold]Types Of Rips:[/bold]
    -Straight Rips: At this time these are impossible to do anything with. I group by the name of Pi has been releasing these lately. They are of no use at the current time though.

    -Xtreme Rips (Not Patched): These are good rips that just need to be patched with the correct .bin file. I'll explain where to get these, and how to patch the files. After patched you can then burn it and it'll boot no problem.

    -Xtreme Rips (Pre Patched): These files are the easiest to use, they come in .rar format like both other rips, the difference is you just have to unrar and burn. No patching required. This is the fastest way.

    Note: Skip to step 2 if you have a prepatched iso.

    1. Your going to have to patch the game to work correctly, without a patch the XBox360 won't know how to handle the game. Your going to need XBOX360 SS Merger 1.5o to do this. Open the program and load your iso. When it asks to check the MD5 hit yes, it'll take a few minutes, its a pretty big file.It will then produce an MD5 number for you. You want to load your ss.bin file that came with the game, if it didnt come with the game visit http://www.ubclass.org/X360SS/sslist.htm to get the ss.bin file you need. Load the file.If both boxes are green and the numbers match, that is the correct file you need to patch. Hit the big huge button on the right side of the program to patch the file. Again, this will take a few minutes, it's a huge file.It will then tell you it's finish and you can load the file that it outputs.

    2. Open up Clone CD, anything above version 5 should work. Simply hit the second button to open and image file and select your new iso. It should load without problem. You will need a dual layered DVD+R to burn, your 360 won't read any other format correctly. Also, make sure you burn at 2x or close as possible so your game is readable and doesn't skip. This is very important.

    3. Put the game in your XBox360 and enjoy. You can even play on XBox Live without a single problem.

    Hi,

    You mentioned "if it didnt come with the game visit here to get the ss.bin file you need". Where is "here" exactly to find ss.bin files for the games I have that I want to backup?

    There is no link.

    Cheers

    you need to use dual layer dvds (8.5 gigs) your dvd player should say dvd+r DL on the front, if it doenst have "DL" anywhere its probably not a dual layer

    What if we don't actually own the game? Also, some of us don't want to take our XBox360 apart... Even if we did do it the first time to mod the firmware, I don't want to take my 360 apart everytime i "buy" a new game.

    If you don't own the games than you can't make backups. That is
    illegal, a felony actually

    yeah, but these forums dont care about legalities.. go figure.

    dont forget that different 360 DVD drives work with different media.

    pioneer 111d (1.23 FW)+ verbatim DVD+R DL disks work for a majority of people with both drives.

    TTownKlwn, I told you once and you were banned for it. Keep your negativity out of my posts. No one wants to hear the teenage piracy patrol captains speech about how piracy is wrong. If people choose to do it that's their problem. They don't need it rubbed in their face everytime you feel morally right. Go take up another cause. People are aborting babies, doing smack, and even killing cats for fun... Cant you find something better to complain about then people making illegal copies of PaRappa The Rapper for Playstation. Yes, this forum is against piracy as stated in forums rules. Let the moderators mod, that's their job. You keep making tacos, that's your job.

    Mods: This is not just about this thread, for some reason TTownKlwn follows every post I make here and comments with his anti-piracy banter. I like to contribute, I even made this tutorial and I want to make more, but shmucks like this isn not good for productivity.

    I "might" need backup with this question, I didn't have to set any bit info up, I just used CloneCD and my burns work 100% perfect. Has anyone else had to change this setting?

    is there a way to do that without opening up your xbox to apply the firmware?
