    If you get your xbox 360 glitch hacked you can load games from external usb drive.
    X360key will plug into the usb port of the 360 and do the same thing.

    I forgot
    In order to play backups of 360 games, you have a few options. RGH, which I'm pretty sure isn't available on your slim (though I'm not 100% familiar, wait until Dinohscene comes...heh.) You could also flash your DVD drive (this would be the cheapest and probably safest method as well as easiest). To do so, all you need to do is open up your xbox, take the DVD drive out and flash it with LT3.0 firmware. Tutorials vary upon drive, and so do requirements so you'll most likely need to buy some hardware for it as well.

    Also, you don't necessarily need to burn discs, you could get an X360 USB PRO which connects to your DVD drive. It has a USB port which you can store and play games using a USB HDD. Though the device itself is around $100 last I remember, so it's a no go if you don't want to spend any money.

    RGH can be done on a Slim if it's a Trinity model (115w powerbrick iirc)
    The glossy black version is almost certain to be a Trinity.
    Corona is in the works but it wouldn't be reliable as the Phat or Trinity RGH.
    RGHing your console will NOT allow you on XBLive UNLESS you install a Dual NAND!

    If you want to flash your drive then you'll have to open it up and check the drive.
    If it's a Hitachi then you can forget about flashing since that drive isn't hacked yet.

    All current Liteons (except for the 1175) can be flashed with LT 3.0

    It WILL require either the Kamikazehack to be done or the Sputnik360 (if you're lucky) to unlock write acess to the drive.
    It further on requires either a X360 USB or VIA PCI Sata and a Connectivity kit. (I'm not entirely sure about the probe but the Jungleflasher manual can give more insight in that.)

    Why use a external USB drive if you can replace your internal HDD with any size HDD + use the drives SATA 2 connection for game loading which is faster then USB 2.0???

    I should sell the 360 in parts.

    Casing, Drive, heatsinks, HDD, fanduct, fans etc.

    Spoofing the drive is detectable and another banned box is somewhat of a shame );

    I should reflow the board once.
    Then install a 40mm on the 2nd GPU heatsink + cut a hole in the side of it.
    Might also be an option to place some small heatsinks on the RAM chips.
    (first Elite 360 was a Zephyr board which had the 2nd GPU heatsink)

    It should run cooler then normal ;]

    Weird that it went RRoD after a home moving ;/

    It is possible.

    3ROD means a general hardware failure.
    Check your secondary error code by holding the sync button on the console.
