    I just got a new Xbox 360 and would like to hack it. But I have absolutely no idea where to start and I can't find a tutorial that starts form the beginning (All seem to assume you know a lot already). Help with this would be nice

    So questions:
    -Are all Xboxes hackable?
    -If not, how can I check whether mine is?
    -If I play burned single player games but only go on Live with legit games, will I get banned?
    -Can someone please help me find a beginner's tutorial?

    1. no

    2. opening it and looking at special numbers on the inside

    3. If you hack your xbox so microsoft can't tell, and you play offline, you should be fine. If you do it right you can even play burned games online & not get banned.

    4. I would NOT recommend flashing your xbox, get this: x360dock.com , it loads games off HDD, so you don't have to buy expensive disks, don't have to worry about burning, just DL and play. It costs LESS than the tools to flash your xbox, and is a whole lot simpler. Right now you can't play the backups on XBL though, but you shouldn't get banned if you just play them offline and later play online with legit discs. They said in the future it'll support XBL.

    That looks great!
    Can you find me a guide on how to check which drive I have? Apparently the x360dock isn't compatible with all of them.

    Two on the right show the shape of the slim drive trays. If it's an Hitachi you can't hack it. If it's a lite-on, you can as long as it isn't the new dg-16d5s with the 1175 firmware. Unfortunately, the new one that can't be hacked and the older ones that can share the same tray, so you'll have try and guess via the manufacturer date and lot number or open it up to check it.
