Okay..I just bought a 360 Pro model on eBay for $55. The auction was over in 5 mins by the time I found it, so I couldn't ask the seller many questions.. The auction didn't say it came with a HDD, so I doubt it does, says it works fine so..
What I want to do is put iso files onto an external drive and have the 360 load the games off of that.
I've read about flashing DVD drives etc and I just want to make sure I don't need anything extra by the time the 360 comes. This is basically the steps I think I need to do:
Open it up and connect the drive to my comp
Flash the drive
Download and burn XEXLoader, install it to the 360
Format the HDD
Put the ISO files on the drive
Plug it into the 360
Load XEXLoader and run the game
Now my few questions:
For XEXLoader to install, do I need an original 360 harddrive? Or can I install it onto the flash?
If I need the drive, do I have to buy one of those 360 HDD to PC USB adapters?
Is there any special hardware or screwdrivers I need to go and purchase inorder to do all this? I already have extra SATA cables and my PC has an external SATA connector.
Do I need to patch every single game with XEXTool for them to be able to load offf external (I guess)?
