    I just got a 360, and my problem is that the cd reader is broken. I was wondering if I could just get a mod chip instead of getting it repaired, since mod chips play games off of the hard drive. I can't really send it in anymore, since it was taken apart by the person who gave it to me.

    JTAG and XBR, but if you've updated to the latest dashboard revision (8xxx something) forget it. If you've connected to Live since last Fall, you're at too recent a dashboard.

    And don't say "pirate" say "backups", it's only for games you own. [​IMG]

    I just said pirate cause that's what most people know it as. I was looking for a mod chip that could run them off of the hard drive, because my cd reader isn't reading games

    How's it illegal to ask where to find instructions to pirate 360 games? Have you ever looked in the Wii or DS sections?

    If your 360 has been on live since Fall 09 then forget it

    If its under warranty repair it

    may be anyway just a simple dust issue, open up the thing and give it a nice clean through

    Microsoft will most likely fix the 360 even if it's void.

    Easy to replace the drive. Purchase a BenQ form flebay and spoof the firmware with original drives info.
    You should be able to find someone to do it for you in your local.

    Of course they would, but they'd charge the premium price for it.

    This is the problem with people today, they don't read(including the TC). His original question calls for a tutorial or guide. He is NOT asking for iso's or roms..at least not in his original post. Read the 3rd post and google, that's your only option unless you replace the DVD drive. I don't think modchips can run games off the HDD.

    First off, the guy never asked for a link to warez. He was wondering if it was possible to pirate 360 games. By possible he didn't mean "Can I download them?" but rather "What do I need to do to my Xbox to do that?" Anyway, problem solved, let's end it here.

    And yes, it is possible with the methods people listed. Still, there's stuff like banning going around, so be careful.

    Original Question:

    I am getting accused of not reading it properly? He asked about sorting out a mod chip then announced he has a place that handles them and therefore would know the answer... I never mentioned Roms and neither did he!

    Now the thread may have dissolved into something more along those lines later but seriously, Marcoao, I do read!

    Mod chips can't play games off the 360. Only a JTAG console can.

    There are only a few modchips for Xbox360 and most of them no longer work, or only on specific older drives.
