    You need a JTAG for that I believe. All a flashed drive is able to do is spoof the 360 into thinking that a copied game you have put in is a game and not a DVD. That's in simpler terms, of course.

    Right. With the JTAG it allows you to re-sign XBLA stuff to your console/profile ID, you can't do that just by burning it to a DVD and playing it. There's a MW2 glitch that allows some demos to be unlocked, but its spotty and doesn't work for all XBLA demos. Your best bet is to just buy a JTAG-able motherboard or whole system off ebay or wherever, and stick it in your current 360 chassis. I bought 10 taggable boards off ebay for $25 with $10 shipping. I have TONS of spare cases/PSUs/AV cables from my repair shop sitting around. JTAG them, sell them, profit.
