    so long story short i was lazy and screwed up...

    i have/had a xenon jtag running freeboot on dash 15574 but no dvd drive - i ripped a dvd drive from a broken 360 i had and chucked it in there and obviously it didn't work...
    so i tried to install rglauncher (because that lets you use an unpaired dvd drive, right?)
    so anyway... ran rgbuilder 0v305 with options as Hack: JTAG, Version: 15574 and using my current nand dumped via flash360
    flashed the .bin it spat out to be greeted by a blank screen on boot

    no worries right? that image included xell reloaded... i'll boot into that and reflash my working image...

    so when booting into xell i get two possible screens:
    this one i get when i use one of my usb drives with updflash.bin on it:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    i guess it doesn't like that usb...
    maybe i'll try putting "updflash.bin" on another usb... or putting the file on a dvd...?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    okay, so i guess it gets stuck at this screen unless it's busy crashing because it doesn't like the other usb i have?

    anyone have any suggestions what i can do or am i going to either have to buy a usb flasher or find a pc with a parallel port? :(

    (tbh i wouldn't care too much as i have just located a jasper that i plan to rgh once the parts arrive from ebay but i was planning on giving this one to a friend)

    Flash a freshly hacked 15574 image to your 360.
    Make sure it boots and is in fully working order before proceeding.

    Then get Xecuter fusion.
    Make a new image from there and flash that to the console

    That should pair a new DVD drive to the console.
    I never done it myself but it should be possible.

    Otherwise edit your Keyvault for the new DVD drive (if you have a dump of the DVD drive then you can also edit the new DVD key with it)

    edit:
    Build a new hacked image with 360 multi builder.

    *cough* *cough*

    i feel like an idiot... i pulled the dvd drive's sata cable out and now xell isn't freezing...
    it must have been getting confused by it being mismatched

    also, i looked into fusion after devin mentioned it in that other thread but apparently it doesn't support jtag, only rgh (and i this is a xenon so jtag or nothing)
    that's why i was trying rgloader because i assumed i could achieve the same as fucion but it didn't work for me :(

    no way of reading the dvd drive i'm afraid and the box the dvd drive came from (which belonged to the freind i'm giving this xenon to) is fried (don't ask me how because i have no idea what he did to this thing :P)
    guess i'll go back to my initial idea and buy a sata-> pci card off of ebay to dump the dvd drive's info

    Hmm.

    Yeah I was uncertain of Fusion supporting jTAG or not.

    Anyway does he really need the DVD drive?
    Otherwise you can prep the box for him and then give him the DVD drive separately.


    But if he really wants the DVD drive then yeah.
    It's best to edit your KV with the info of the new drive ;p

    Hmm fair enough.

    Then the best thing to do is to extract the DVD firmware and edit the KV with it ;]
