    I just dug out my RGH modded 360 Slim. I needed the included 2TB drive (internal) for a project, and just installed a 500gb drive (internal) in it's place, as I don't need 2TB for a 360.

    What is a good installation guide for Aurora Dashboard (the included dashboard was FSD, but I read that it is out of date), and how can I play Original Xbox games/homebrew? Finally, I have a large 360 collection in .ISO format, so what is the best way to play those off my hard drive?

    Thanks!

    Follow this tut.
    Substitute Freestyle Dash with Aurora.
    The latest dashlaunch 3.18.1 can be found with a little google work.

    As for running backups.
    I recommend using Xbox Image Browser to rip the files out of the ISO's.
    You could use ISO2GOD to convert them into Game on Demand files, some games only work as this format tho they are rare.

    I have a bunch of OG Xbox games that aren't ISO, but rather each game is it's own folder with a bunch of files/folders + default.xbe
    Can I just use my FTP program (in my case, FlashFXP) to just transfer each game folder to my 360 HDD, and they will work in Aurora Dash?

    I wanted to use ISO2GOD to FTP to my 360.

    Yes, you can just FTP them to the internal drive.

    Make sure to make Aurora/FSD point to the folder where you store them.
    If you follow the tut then you shouldn't encounter any issues.

    Got Aurora up and running, but I don't see a section for Original Xbox games. How do I launch those, and where do I install the hacked compatibility folders/files?

    Install to hddx. If no hddx use app to make hddx. Comes with pack. There are several versions and both have similar installs.

    For Xbox titles (All titles) you have to setup where your games are (Game Paths). Press start and then content. You'll see option to browse. Change scan depth to 10 as well in same menu. Run a scan once your scan paths are setup and you'll start seeing your games populate.

    The tutorial covers everything.
    Just follow it to the point and you'll be good to go.

    Just wanted to add that some games also only work in their extracted form - I can only name Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, as I have never managed to run it as a GOD game.
