1.Download Simple 360 NAND Flasher V1.2
2.Copy the the contents to an USB Stick
3.Execute Simple 360 Nand Flasher on your xbox360.
4.Dump the Nand by clicking X on your Controller.
5.Wait until the Dump is completed
6.Shutdown your XBox360 and Turn it on with the Drive Eject Button.
7.Xell will boot and show your CPU Key, write it Down because it's required in the next Step.

Now you chould have a Dump of your Nand and the CPU Key of your Xbox360.

8.Download JRunner and download the latest Kernel.
9.Click on Load Source and select the Nand Dump.
10.Enter the CPU Key and click Re-init

If you've done everything right then Jrunner will display all the details of your NAND.

11.Check if the right explot is selected (JTAG, RGH or RGH2)
12.Check that the newest Kernel is selected.
13.click on "Create XeBuild Image" to create a new (updated) NAND Image.

If everything went right you should have a file called "updflash.bin"

14.Copy "updflash.bin" directly to your USB Stick.
15.Plug the USB Stick back into your Xbox360 and boot into Xell by pressing eject while the Xbox360 is turned of.

Xell should detect the updflash.bin and flash your xbox with the New Updated (ONLY FOR YOUR XBOX360) created XeBuild Image.

If in any circumstances xell won't flash it and keep looking for an Update than use Simple 360 NAND Flasher V1.2 to flash the Image by clicking A on your Controller.


After that your Xbox is Updated with the Newest Kernel and you can proceed with Dashlaunch.

Good Luck and thank me later ;)

if you want to install avatar stuff, once you get an hdd, make sure you install the official update from 17511, or whatever dash you're on. an hdd is required for avatar, media, kinect, and xbox emulator stuff.

Would try it, if the last time I tried to flash the NAND didn't brick my console.
If I had the proper hardware to flash the NAND, I definitely do it, but I'm not in a rush for that since the KV is banned and I would have to get another one (via dumping my other Xbox's NAND, or buying one) to get online capabilities. Afak, updating the kernel doesn't have any other use in RGH, but I may be wrong.

if you want to install avatar stuff, once you get an hdd, make sure you install the official update from 17511, or whatever dash you're on. an hdd is required for avatar, media, kinect, and xbox emulator stuff.
Done it.
Got a case for a 2.5 HDD I had laying around and it works now.
Thanks for the reminder.

you're on late enough dash kernel to where playing games shouldn't be any issue. that kernel may only be a tos as with the kernel above it. looks like there's only a few dash kernels in between that and the latest:

not a big deal. the last good dash kernel was 16xxx, since it unlocked 2TB external hdd. mostly good for dlc, which I think can't be done with an rgh otherwise afaik. xbla can be and possibly xblig, but not dlc. if you want to install the hacked compatibility files, you need to unlock hddx first. that's the xbox partition. they won't transfer otherwise even if it says it's okay.

there's an option for that in fsd and aurora, to unlock access to hddx. then, all you do is copy and paste the compatibility files. that's all there is to it. the newest allow the guide to work in xbox mode as well, so if that works, you know it's working.

Well, maybe the modder unlocked HDDx, since yesterday I installed DLC for WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2011 and it worked.
And yeah, I would like to update the kernel to the latest, but since I doubt it would work correctly based on the last experience I had, I would like to wait for the proper hardware.

here you can see it working: the xbox emulator is on the hdd, so possibly not by the modder. you just have to allow access, which is what I mean by unlock. it's disabled by default to prevent someone from messing something up, because at least with fsd, the flash is included with hddx. I can't remember if it is with aurora. that's what I used to send over the hacked files

if you updated online while using an rgh or jtag, I think you'll have to manually reflash the system with a nand programmer. I forgot what happens if you update normally though.

I'm not sure. I think so. the way that jtag rgh work is by sending the hypervisor from 4xxx kernel in place of the one from the firmware installed. since the system uses efuses, it won't allow downgrading, so I think that's what causes the brick.

I don't remember the instructions as it's been 10 years or so, but I once had a bad flash somehow, and I was able to fix it with the debian disc. I think it makes a wireless link between the system and the pc. all you need is to be able to boot into xell. can't say it will work, and I can't find a tutorial for it, but I have the live cd on my computer.
