    Jtagging a 360 only lets me run homebrew, correct?

    Would it be possible to flash my 360 with iExtreme or something if it is Jtagged?

    Is there any possibility of me being banned when I play a legit game on a jtagged 360?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Jtagging also lets you play games from HDD, USB or Xbox. You will get banned from Jtagging but if you have a box that can do it I would recommend it.

    I adore my jtag'd 360. Have every single XBLA game running from a USB hard drive (The same usb hdd i use for wii games, how awesome is that?) ontop of tons of retail 360 games running off of USB. DLC also works fine.

    In fact, i just purchased another exploitable 360 today to have as a backup. They are freakin hard to find tho.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I just have one more question. When looking up 10th prestige hacks online, all of them said that they were patched and a jtagged 360 was needed. Wouldn't it be kinda pointless to do this with a jtagged 360 since they will be banned from Live anyway?

    a jtag xbox worked for some time on live, but some people though it was fun to cheat on xbox live, and so microsoft banned everyone with a jtag 360.

    So I'm assuming that Microsoft can detect if you are using a jtagged console. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    yes they can detect you. If you are looking to play free games on your box Jtagging is the way to go. But don't plan on staying on LIVE for very long any way you go.(LT is yet to be proven in the field, and you still need a Lite-On)

    Is there a way to transfer saves from a JTAG XBOX to a normal one without getting the ban?

    Can you simply use a memory card, or do you think it transfers the ban info too?

    Personally I would be inclined to use the FTP and easy drive access afforded by a JTAG modded box and just swap hard drives- transferring the ban is not going to happen although the minor caveat of if later down the line you are hacking games/saves or worse sharing them widely then they may cast their eye your way (they already come down hard on such communities- we saw secdata.bin corrupted for everyone this time, the save sharing types had their 360s revoked as in every update (not necessarily kernel update) is hardcoded to say do not accept files from this 360: http://xorloser.com/?p=45).

    J-Tag Console = Possible Ban

    LT Firmware = Possible Ban

    i-Xtreme Firmware = possible Ban

    using any sort of hacked game save on an umodded Xbox 360 = possible Ban

    using a console on live that was once modded in any way = possible Ban


    As a rule of thumb, messing with anything on your console risks getting you banned.

    If you play live, then buy a second console for live, or don't get a mod in the first place.
