    Will this allow me to play ISO files off an external HDD?

    Thanks!

    So you just buy this USB device, plug it in, and you're good to go?

    Why would you ever JTAG or anything like that? Why hardware mod?

    You'll have to extract the DVD keys first.
    After that it's basically plug and play.

    NTFS harddrives are supported.

    JTAG/RGH allows for backupped/pirated XBLA/DLC playback as well as homebrew.
    You'll lose XBL access unless you Dual NAND it or invest in stealth servers.

    So can't you just play backed up/pirated games from the Xkey-HDD?
    Why would you ever JTAG/RGH then?

    Only disc backups, ISO files.
    Any game that's available retail you could playback on an Xkey.

    DLC/XBLA/XBLindie backups is only possible on hardware hacked consoles.

    yeah, jtag/rgh consoles take advantage of an exploit of kernel 4xxx that allowed running unsigned code. it was an exploit of the hypervisor which has since been patched. ;)
