    so I'm fixing to pick up an RGH modded 360 with a cool runner chip with a flashed disc drive
    and I don't know what this is capable of, I've never owned a hard modded console and I don't know what I should or should not do. I don't have to time to search the forums yet but could someone either link me to a guide explaining do's and don't, or just give them to me here?
    any help is appreciated.

    this guy is selling it to me and he will be giving me the backup NANDS, firmwares, and keys, so I know I'm not going to be screwed if I mess up. he is selling a modded ps3 and also a 360 elite but I'm not interested in those. ( i will of course be testing it, you have 2 hours to explain why I should not get this or tell me the basics)

    You should get it. Basically, if you use RGH you can run freestyle dash which allows you to easily run homebrew and backups. I don't have much time to explain either, but if you use an external HDD, it should be formatted in FAT32. A tip, when you look for tutorials, RGH is the same as JTAG. RGH is like running jtag through a chip mod.

    I don't use the online features. I know that you might be banned, but you can unban yourself through rgh. There's a jtag/rgh online plugin called LINKUP.

    You will be banned within hours. The dashboard is modified and unsigned. Microsoft can detect this and the result is a ban. However, you can download all the DLC, and run homebrew and emulators as well. It's pretty costly to unban and again it will gt banned within hours. wash rinse repeat. you can get XBLS (or some other variation) which supposedly keep your KV (the key vault) safe. In order to unban you need to buy another KV and learn to inject it into your NAND.

    sounds like I wont be going online for awhile, hah. not like the ban thing matters,
    I was just looking into XBLS's, it's interesting but not something I will be getting into anytime soon.
    anyways thanks for the responses, you guys have answered my big worry questions, looks like I'll be getting a modded 360!

    He knows pretty much everything about 360 hacking. But in any case, online is a negative for most unless you know exactly what you are doing (and still you have to be careful). Offline is good for most and more (better xbox compatibility to name a few).

    I'd highly recommend keeping it offline.
    Put FSD on it and play games on it.

    There's LiNK which is a systemlink only replacement for XBL, so you can go online.

    XBLS isn't worth it.
    Risk of getting scammed is incredibly high and it's just not worth it.
    (seeing XBL costs 40 a year and that service costs 40 a day)

    okay so now I'm stuck, I have an ISO ready but I dont know how to install. I noticed that the files are broken down on the EXT hard drive and I want to know how to do that. could I just upload the ISO to the EXT driver or how would I go about extracting the ISO files?

    Extract it with Xbox Image browser or convert it with ISO2GOD.
    Then follow me FSD tutorial to set FSD up and install it.

    After you extract games, make a folder on your external drive called games and put each game in it's own subfolder in there (named whatever you want but I suggest using the name of the game). Some say not to use spaces in the subfolder names but I've never had problems with that.

    If your looking to only play 360 games just get a flashed console. If you want homebrew,game managers, themes private server play get an RGH
