older than this?

This tutorial states you need version 2.0.7371.0 or lower, so you might be in luck if you can get the disk drive running again. Or I guess once it's JTAG'd, you can just load games from the HDD and not use the disk drive at all.

Comments on the link above say this tutorial is more up to date: forums.xbox-scene.com/ind…652

Requires soldering so if you're not handy with a soldering iron, get it done 'professionally' rather than risk frying your motherboard. Would be a shame to waste it.

So the new dash can now be done, the one post mid-2009?

Nxe dashboard 7371 and below are exploitable aslong as they haven;t been repaired by MS and CB patched. 7363 is nxe aswell.

MFR date must be less than 18-06-2009, and dashboard less than 7371

yes it can be done,
is it easy, depends on whether you can solder
remember that a jtag cannot be played on xbox live without being banned,
also there is a new hack coming out in the next few weeks that you can run games from a USB hard drive on ALL xboxes

Awesome. Been out of the 360 hacking scene for a while now, especially since the PS3 got hacked.

What's the deal with the usb loader? I can't get on any sites here at work.

there are 2 coming out in the space of a month.

Team WODE, the guys behind their Wii Optical Disc Drive Emulator has announced that they will enter the Xbox 360 scene with a brand new product called XODE. Like the x360key, XODE is an optical drive emulator that promises to be more featured packed at half the price. Take a look.

Team WODE made this announcement:


X360KEY is coming... ETA end of june...

we can only say this: "XBOX OPTICAL DRIVE EMULATOR aka XODE" is coming... For now we can not release specific information or images, which would benefit x360key...
after seeing the features and prices x360key we can say that:

1- Fortunately x360key follows the "old" approach of Wode... XODE instead introduces a new way of working really original... we will surprise you.

2- XODE will work on XBOX SLIM since its launch with a 100% support of AP25.

3-Half price then a X360KEY in production!!! thanks the new "original" concept of point 1...

We plan to release a first proof of working at middle/end of may with a nice video working on a X360 SLIM console... and a detailed review near the release of X360KEY... Production will be ready on JULY.

We advise all to wait before place BIG pre-orders from WIIKEY/X360KEY team, it is wise to don't risk too much... after not tell us that there were not warned...

PS: we found time also to update WODE platform, finally the WEB interface is almost ready, we plan to release this feature next week.

PPSS: official website of XODE is xodejukebox.com soon online...

Let's see where Team WODE goes with this.

A bit of interesting news popped up on our Facebook News Feed from Xbox-Scene. Apparently, a new product dubbed the x360key allows you to play Xbox games from any USB drive. According to the manufacturer's website, the x360key:
•User friendly: intuitive interface, no soldering required
•Compatible with all fat (and soon slim!) Xbox 360 models
•Supports most Xbox 360 and Xbox 1 games
•Supports most file systems, including NTFS, EXT2/3/4, and Mac OS X Extended
•High speed USB2 interface
•Stylish USB control pad for selecting games and controlling your x360key
•Powerful embedded Linux system running from Micro SD card (included)
•Linux firmware fully updatable from USB media
•FPGA fully updatable from USB media via built-in, in-system JTAG programming
•Recovery mode - it is always possible to recover from a bad flash
•No drive flashing or JTAG hack required
•AP25 protection emulation
How it Works:
x360key consists of 2 parts, a motherboard and a remote.

The motherboard connects to the SATA bus inside the Xbox 360, and sits between the drive and the Xbox 360 motherboard. x360key is a full-fledged computer system running embedded Linux. It is capable of many things such as
- Emulating the Xbox 360 DVD drive
- Reading USB hard drives and other USB media with various file systems
- Updating itself and other hardware from USB media
- Communicating with the remote and other external USB devices
- And a lot more! (embedded Web server and Wifi connectivity for example)

The x360key is expected to go on sale in July.
the above working in youtube if you can access that

only trouble with x360key and xode will be that MS can patch it to stop it working.. JTAG is the only real way of keeping an ISO loading machine.

Cheers boabbyrab. Looks interesting though disappointing it's a paid for product.

but yes, you CAN jtag that elite, and you SHOULD, for about a tenner..

JTAG kit #5 will simplify the process but its up to you

for the price of a few games it would pay for itself in no time, if i didn't have a jtag i would be interested in this.

as said i have a jtag for try before you buy and a normal xbox, but with jtagable xboxes becoming rarer this is the next best thing for running "back up" games off a hard drive.
Xode runs on all xboxes and should be half the price of x360key.

yes dont get me wrong, it seems like it will be the way forward in truth..

afterall, jtagging is great for all the features, FSD, etc, but 99% of people want to do it as you can just load games from a HDD.. i have a jasper jtag and have just done one for my bro (falcon from the 80 quid 60gb morrisons deal).. goto love em
