Here's an idea. Rather than being a self righteous jerk, either help someone out or DON'T bother posting.
I DID google it first and found losts of old and conflicting details. Just wanted someone to save me some time (I have 2 kids
and point me in the right direction, something I would happily do for someone else (as you will see from my past posts).
You see unlike you unhelpful jerks that just told me to google it, one really cool member of this forum PM'd me and gave me a few pointers.
That's ALL I was looking for!
After his much appreciated short message with the name of of few programs that I should be looking to use (wow really put himself out!), I had Xex Menu, NXE2GOD and the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility hack all installed and running great within an hour.
Seriously just a few pointers is all I asked for! For instance in case anyway else finds this and is looking for the same, let me help you where these guys didn't!
First thing you need is something that will boot your hacks/homebrew/games. Currently your best choice is XEX Menu, grab the ISO from Xbins. Here's a great guide to get you to Xbins with ease -http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=570248
Once you have burnt the Xex Menu ISO to a CD you can boot it, and install the your HD. Here's a guide for that -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ-w38C9NSQ
Now you can run great programs like NXE2GOD (turn your installed games to Games on Demand), Emulators or any other homebrew (in XEX format_ right from Xex menu. You can also navigate your files.
After that, look probably want to look into running XBLA or full games from an external drive and installing Freestyle dash.
After I got to grips with most of this I found this great beginners guide -http://www.xpgamesaves.com/tutorials/t-138...etting-up-jtag/
