    JTAG has been disabled in 7371, which predates Slim release.
    RGH is possible but it requires soldering and finetuning the wires to get good boottimes.
    Considering you barely read the thread, I doubt you're up to the task.

    Xkey is the easiest method really.

    Gambia, The
    Alright, i will sell my x360 and buy instead a PS4.

    Can i maybe ask: Is ps4 flashing possible ? if yes, i am ready to bring the ps4 that i buy soon, to a modshop who would install / flash it for me, for the ps4 i am ready to pay so much it needs cuz my x360 is not worth, all games are outdated and i never liked the x360 to be honest.

    Nope.
    PS4 isn't hackable unless you're on 1.76, even then it's limited.
    Private kernel hacks exist for 4.xx but nothing has been released yet.

    I had to use this hack and it refused to "glitch" and boot the Linux stuff used to display the cpu/cd key.
    It really was hell to get working. Apparently, length of wires can make a difference and I had to shorten/resolder them until it worked ... it took days.
    Was hell ...

    RGH is all about wirelengths to get a good/ the best boottime possible.

    hi guys,
    I'm tryng to mod my xbox 360. I read the guide but I have some question... becouse searching on internet I found a lot of chip/probe model (in stock or not), and I'm not sure which one buy and where??... and which one is the best solution for my situation?

    I have the phat model:
    Jasper with the lite-on (74850C I suppose) drive
    dashboard: 2.0.17511.0



    If is it possible I prefer to run the backup from an HDD instead of burn it on a DVD.
    Thanks a lot for your help!

    p.s. sorry for my bad english.

    You could just dump the DVD drive and get an Xkey.
    You'll need to follow the flashing instructions to dump the DVD.

    Hello, I'm sorry for the noobishness and my lack of information. I have a younger brother that lives far away and I wanted to enable his Xbox 360 to run backups from a USB HDD.
    The console is Xbox 360 E and it is already hacked since he's able to run burned discs in it. However I have no clue which kind of hack it is running and I'm having trouble instructing my little brother over phone on how to verify his dashboard version. I'm assuming it has some kind of RGH from what I understood of the OP.

    Is it possible for it to be running any other hack, considering it is the more recent E model?
    What are the options for running games from USB?
    Is Xkey the only one?
    If it is, are people allowed to link me a seller via this forum?

    If it only plays burned games but not USB stored ones, it's a disc drive hack. It was likely RGH'd at some point to get the DVD key for the drive hack. Otherwise it was probed to dump the key. I think that drive requires the kamikaze hack(drill into the chip on the disc drive board) to dump the key though.

    The xKey isn't the only option. RGH is another, but you essentially lose Xbox live. At least easy access as you'd require a stealth server service and wads of cash to be online.

    So if it is RGH'd is there any way I can load from USB without Xkey?

    Yep. Through Xexmenu, Freestyle Dash, or Aurora. All programs that access the USB ports for games.

    Hey guys I'm thinking of modding my xbox 360 phat. I was thinking of using the xkey method because soldering is just not for me. Is modchipcentral the best website in us to buy it?

    Modchip central is decent.
    You can go for it.
