If your AR lets you get a working hacked gamesave onto your box, then you dont need an x-key to softmod it eh. wink.gif

Hmmm, this guide will be great help to me in the near future. Although I have one small problem, and I am not quite sure what the problem is but hopefully someone here can throw me a few pointers.

I just got the usb keyboard adapter in the mail today, so I loaded up the mechassult files on to my SanDisk cruzer mini 256mb, and pluged it into my controller. Here is where the problem lies, when I go into memory, the xbox just slows down. Since the screen has some kind of fading effect that is slowed down as well. Basically my xbox doesn't read the microdrive. I read a list of compatible usb drives, my microdrive was on the list, so either something is wrong with the drive, the list is wrong, or my xbox just won't read it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just for reference:

So does this modding technique support adding a bigger harddrive and the ability to rip xbox games onto it?

I would assume it does, but we all know what assuming does...

Thanks in advance.

Sergg, The best way I've found to transfer files to my xbox is via a standard memory card. I bought a Mad Cats version for around $20. I was going to need one anyway, so I bought it.

How does one transfer games to his memory card from his PC? Well you plug your xbox controller into your PC with the memory card installed. Funny, you say? It is funny, but the xbox controller is detected as a USB device as is the card. With the drivers that come with the Action Replay software (free update), you're off to the races.

How does one connect his xbox controller to his PC? well, you gotta "hack" it together. Meaning take out your wire cutters and "hack" into the cables my friend. Then you mate a male USB connector to a hacked up xbox break away cable and then connect your controller to that. End Result: xbox controller & memory card plugged into PC via USB connector.

Here is a pic of how you wire it (notice the yellow wire goes nowhere). Good Luck.

P.S. The motivation behind this thread is great, but I think it should be updated to mention LTools as it would have saved me the agrivation of trying to install UDE by hand. grr.gif

I have an Action Replay and am having troubles getting the -free-x-mechassault.rar- file onto the memory card, the software that AR uses to upload saved games gives me an error of -not a valid xbox saved game- am I doing something really wrong, thanks for the help.

timr524, yeah you really should check out LTools. The other thing is that the file you upload must be a ZIP file and not a RAR file. You also have to have the files located in special folders within the zip. There is a tut on that someplace around here.
