    I have Lt 3.0 and im tired of getting cds and i want to do RGH.

    The guy that does it,wants 40eu ($50) for it,and he will do it in 24h.

    So i need to bring him my console,and tomorrow it will be done.

    So when its done,i just download games via torrent and put them on my xbox hard drive,right? How do i transfer it?
    And is the price okay for rgh?

    that's an ok price for an RGH install, transfer is done by usb stick using xexmenu or FTP using flashfxp or filzilla. just remember you cannot go on XBOXLIVE never again as you will get banned within minutes.

    you always have the other option of buying an OODE emulator, where you can still run the games off the HDD but cannot run the DLC / XBLA games. but this is more expensive than the RGH install..........................sudeki300

    I'd say go for it.
    You'll lose XBLive for sure but you'll gain the ability to execute XBLA/DLC/XBLIndie/Xbox 1 and 360 games from the internal drive.

    If you really want to have Live, get an Xkey like sudeki said.

    so just to clarify here iv been wondering how to do this....
    so i can download any xbox game to my pc , then put the iso on to a usb and copy it to the xb hd and it will play?
    i dont need to convert or patch the iso or anything? just copy the iso file from usb to hd?

    im getting my xb rghed very soon by bl4kely

    and what about game cds and backup discs can i rip them to the hd?

    You'll need to extract the ISO image with either Xbox Image browser (if you chose to use the xex extract version) or with ISO2GOD.
    Then you can copy it to the HDD and play it.
    I suggest reading me tut on installing FSD, it makes things a lot easier ;]

    Yes, if blakey flashes your drive, you're able to rip your discs to the HDD.
    If he leaves it stock, then you can only rip retail copies of games to the HDD.

    Aye aye.
    If everything shows up green (don't look at the yellow SplitVid message) then it should boot without any problem.
    Remember to burn XGD3 with special hacked iHAS burners or burners compatible with the Burner Max Payload tool.

    ds i have bought a 250 gb laptop hd and a 360 slim enclosure case and the 360 will not find the hd i have tried to format in fat32 and it still doesnt see it
    once i have my 360 hacked and flashed will i be able to use this hd?
    otherwise its no use to me i assumed i could just put in any 2.5"hd and it would work
    its a 250gb hitachi hd 5400rpm

    when i plug it in via usb it sees it and formats it etc but only to 32gb and even after this it still wont work when i put it inside the xbox

    In order for a stock machine to recognize a laptop HDD, you will need to use a WD drive and a program called HDDhackr to flash the firmware.

    It'll only work if you have your 360 RGH'd.
    Otherwise it won't work ;]

    Yes.
    However you'll need an SD based dumper (TX SD R/W kit should suffice) and possibly a POST fix kit (POST fix is only a few quid)
    Other then that, the RGH process is exactly the same ;]
