    Hello friends,
    I am new to the Xbox hacking/jailbreaking scene and need some help choosing the right jailbreak tool.
    I have this Xbox with Dashboard version 2.0.16203.0 and almost sure its a fat version from previous check.
    I want to be able playing through extern HD and learned that with xk3y it will be possible, I searched the net for the product and found some but with very different prices and became unsure of which one is what i need.
    Which one should I choose?

    27USD incl. shipping:
    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/X360...controller-2-v2-with-usb-cable/758822369.html

    65USD ex. shipping
    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/x360key-xboxkey-XK3Y-for-xbox-360/761280308.html

    Is the 27USD is useable even though it might not be the original one?

    Thanks!
    Davis

    There's no "jailbreak" on the 360.
    "jailbreak" is for Apple rubbish.

    The second link is the Xkey itself, the first link is only the remote.
    You only need the one in the second link.

    To install it, you'll have to extract the DVD key from yer 360.

    Important questions before modding with Xkey:

    1 - What version of Xbox360 im using?
    2 - What version of DVD Drive is with that Xbox360?
    3 - Will I need to do the soldering trick with that DVD Drive?
    4 - Will my computer flash the DVD Drive or will I need a VIA Card, etc?

    I done 3 xbox360s with xKey and from my experience, I recommend watching youtube videos on setting up and installing. The process is easy, but without the right tools, it can be frustrating. Also, I play online with no problem.

    You will the xkey for $65, but the controller for $27 optional (unless this is your first time). I use it myself, but some don't.

    Xkey installation is written down here, quite detailed as well.

    Using Youtube for modding...
    I still don't recommend it.

    Written is good. But seeing someone visually doing it on a video that has a high percent of likes isn't a bad idea.

    That comes down to personal preference really.

    So thats what I come up with, it is a Trinity - 16203 and I obviously can only run RGH2 on it.
    Can anybody provide a link to a good tutorial and eventually link to a shop where I can buy it cheap?
    I can do the soldering without any problem but is there anyway to jtag without buying equipment for it like those special chip that seems to be needed? Kind of DIY with things from home like cables etc.

    Thanks!

    Best is to wait till the CR4 comes out.
    TX announced it should be released in July, but their taking some last adjustments.

    You'll also need a JR Programmer to dump the NAND.

    As for stores, go on the Team Xecuter site n click on the official resellers list, then pick one that ships internationally ;]
