I have an Xbox 360 that basically shut off in the middle of one of my workouts and can not figure out why. So I went to the power brick and there is no light period. As in no red,green, or orange. I am assuming the brick is still good because I opened it and nothing was wrong. No burning smell, nothing seemed popped or dislodged from solder points. So maybe I need just a new ac plug cable. Maybe someone who has experienced this can help me. Second part I'd jtagging. I have read up on it and have a phat benq Xbox 360 that is still going strong. I have quite a bit of games over the years, close to 60-70. My question is this whole xgd3 thing is stupid and I don't want to buy a special drive like I had to when I first started with Xbox burns. If I JTAG it can I just put the iso image on an external and play it that way? Also I could care less about Xbox live as I was banned back in the borderland 1 days. So basically I just need to know if anyone thinks its just a new cable I need and if JTAG or rgh will get around the stupid xgd3 protection by allowing me to play on external drive?
