    What tools do I need and how hard is it to do?

    It's pretty tricky to do.

    If you're up to it then you can give it a shot.
    I don't know if it'll still work with LT 3.0 tho but tbh I think you got more luck with getting a old xbox and softmodding that then doing this method ;p

    Anyway here's the link

    Just my luck... the one Xbox 1 I had and it had a power supply problem, and wouldn't stay the hell on. Finally had to get rid of it when I got the 360.

    As I understand it (I could be wrong here), LT firmware for 360 DVD drives had to drop Xbox 1 backup compatibility in order to better read/report for the AP2.*/3.* challenges in original and backup 360 games.

    I've seen many an ODDE for the 360 claim to support Xbox 1 backups (xk3y comes to mind), but not one review I've seen for any of them actually showed them working on said devices as well. It rather sucks, personally. I'd love to preserve my copy of NFL 2k5 at least and play a backup off my LT3.0 flashed 360 proper. Or just go back and find some of those rare games I didn't get to play since I got my Xbox 1 so late in the game.

    Xbox Originals work on ODDEs. I was able to run a few on my x360key. And Xbox Original backup capability was listed in my x360key review, as well as my x360dock review. Which aren't looked at. :mellow:

    You're right on that.
    However AP2.5 AP26 doesn't really matter much since the topology data is patched.
    All challenges are now responded with correctly.
    Also LT 3.0 lets you read the CIV checks placed in some games.


    You can put them on a ODDE but you will get glitches/laggy performance since it's all emulated (even with legit discs)


    The best way to play Xbox 1 games is on a real Xbox.
    No BC problems and no slowdowns.

    Besides their easy to mod and have a large collection of homebrew ;]

    Okay, I just looked at both of them, and both of your reviews show the section about Xbox 1 games and neither of them passing.:huh::wtf:
