Nihao all. I've just bought a modded XBOX 360, made some researches, and I wanna check wheather i got the info correctly or not. Also, I have some questions... If anyone can help, I thank you in advance. BTW, my specs are: XBOX Model: Arcade Motherboard model: Jasper Mod method: iXtreme 1.7 LT Disc Drive: Phillips Lite-On Menu version: 2.0.8955.0 (If i'm not wrong, it was updated using the Ninety Nine Nights 2 game disc) So, here we go: -= True or False questions (any more in depth info is welcome) will be posted as statements (X for false, V for true) =- 1) Flashing the drive only allows me to play backup games. (X) / (V) 2) To play "backup" XLBA games and to use "backup" DLC, only with a JTagged console. (X) / (V) Addtional info: There is a possiblity of playing some XLBA game through the Moder Warfare 2 glitch, but not all. 2.a) There is a new method to play XLBA, but you need to be connected to LIVE and to use another profile, so if you're banned, so sorry. (X) / (V) Addtional info: It's better to stay away from it. 3) There is no "ISO loader" for the 360. You need to use the original (or backup) disc to start the game after installing it on the HDD. (X) / (V) 3.a) It IS possible to run it withou the disc on a JTaggeg console. (X) / (V) 4) The new dashboard update (the one that will add the Knectic functions) will ban flashed drives, even the ones with LT 1.7. (X) / (V) Addtional info: Not possible to assume it, since it's not officially out. BUT you will be banned if you use the leaked one. 5) My console cannot be JTagged. (X) / (V) 6) I need an XBOX 360 hard drive to play XBOX's games (that are backward compatible). (X) / (V) Addtional info: It's better to use a Original XBOX to play its games. 7) There is no XBOX multigame disc (like having two or more original XBOX games in one disc, as you can do with Gamecube backups). (X) / (V) Addtional info: True for 360, false for the Original (you can make a multigame disc on the first XBOX. 8) Gamerscore (G) points have no purpose other than bragging yourself. (X) / (V) -=: General questions :=- 1) In most of sources it's said you can only play XBOX's backups if they are burned as a 360 game (using a DL disc), but there is on iXtreme changelog that said you could play normal backups (no DL discs). Is this feature false / discarted? Answer: Feature discarted after the first banwave. 2) I know the just by flashing the drive i became a candidate to be banned (if I connect to Live, that is), and that using stealth games my changes of being banned get lower (never zero). The question is: if i play a non-stealth game offline, is it a problem? Like, should I only care about having a stealthed game if i want to play it online? Partial answer: Yes, playing offline do not award me a ban ticket. 2.a) XBOX 360 is able to stay online even if i'm not actually playing anything "online" (like, with / against someone via internet). Will playing a non-stealth offiline game while connect also award me a ban ticket? 3) I've read that if you don't want to be banned on the next ban wave, you should not update the dashboard. So... If I don't update, i won't be banned, right? Partial answer: It's better to return the drive's firmware to the original one (stock), update to the new dash and then re-flash it to the new iXtreme. 4) In case i'm banned, will I be able to buy XLBA games and DLC contents? Answer: No. Part of the banwave process is preventing me from buying things online (basically, to use LIVE as a whole). 5) Let presume the Ban wave already "passed" and i'm not, yet, flagged to be banned. Will I be able to connect after the ban wave with no problems (until the next wave comes, that is)? Partial answer: Maybe, most probaly yes. 6) Can original XBOX's games be played online? Answer: No. 7) If a burnt game starts to give "reading errors", is it a bad thing (besides the fact I'll have to burn'em again)? Like, will MS be able to "flag" me because of this? Partial answer: Maybe. Some believe it will give me a ban ticket, but it's a risky action from MS, since it may also ban legit gamers with children. 8) Do game saves work for different regions? Like, if I play a PAL game and then, without any reason, i decide to continue with a US version, will the save be accepted or I will have to start from the beginning? Answer: Maybe. As stated everywhere, region lock on 360 is not a sure thing. Some developers do, some don't. BUT, most probably my previous save will work. 8.a) Special edition games (lilke Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box and Batman Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition, for example) will accept the "normal" edition saves? Answer: Most probaly, yes, since special editions tend to be jsut a "repack" of the old game bundled with DLCs. 8.b) Can save games be backed up (in a USB, and then PC, for example)? Answer: Yes. I think that's it for now. Thanks in advance. [Edit 01]: Reflecting tk_saturn's post. Thanks! [Edit 02]: Reflecting FAST6191's post. Thanks!
