Ok, I purchased a banned xbox to play backups on craigslist, buyer said he had 1.6 firmware on it, but how do I check? Also, he did (forgot it, i hope) not bring the disc that lets me play the backups (not even sure what its called).
Basically, what I want to know is, how do I backup games and update the firmware?
Just point me in the right directions, links would be superhelpful. Any other wise tidbits and sage advice would be greatly appreciated. I know how to use the search function, but I am just so darn green I can't weed out what's what without a bit of help. THANKS!
get jungleflasher or dosflash and read the firmware on the drive to see what version it is. if it's less than 1.61 you are going to need the activation disk to play wave 4+ games. it's called activate.iso sorry but i can't give a link. i think it's against the rules.
