New to the forums here (hi, all).
X360S, 320GB HDD, Lite-On 16D4S DVD drive (really, Microsoft?).
I know it sounds like a stupid question, but the only truly stupid question is the one that's never asked. And honestly, I'm stumped. I've read a lot on wikis, se7ensins, this forum, various places Google has taken me... but apparently, it's not enough to deter me from asking: what keeps me from just plugging the DVD drive or HDD into my PC and booting into Linux or using some program or something to access stuff? I have looked for a reason "why not", and I can't find it.
This is 2012... shouldn't this stuff be easier?
Any help (especially technical details) would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time :3
Brush up on your Google skills, If I type xbox and hacker guess what I get....
I want to be able to run custom code on my Xbox 360. This is a support thread about putting firmware (specifically iXtreme) on your 360 slim, I have a 360 slim and want to put firmware (specifically, iXtreme, non-specifically, anything that can run a custom loader) on it. My biggest problem right now is, I don't currently have the money to shell out on specialized hardware, and don't have any resistors or VIA 6421 SATA controllers handy... So, I was wondering if there was an easier way of getting the 360 to run iXtreme, i.e., loading it into a wrapper in the form of an offline update and saving it on the hard drive, or connecting the DVD drive to my PC, booting into Linux, and bashing the keys out of the drive and then writing the firmware. Or, if that isn't possible, and I'm screwed: Why? And what do I need to look into?
But I admit, sometimes I get wicked migraines and don't feel like navigating code, sometimes I do this stuff late at night, and sometimes I get lazy. Can't remember which it was at the time, so I'll go with lazy, since I usually remember mind-bending pain, and if I did this earlier in the day I'd likely be less tired, and therefore less lazy. Sorry if I've put you out any, but my reasoning seemed sound at the time.
The only thing stopping me thus far, has been a generalized understanding of, and respect for, the fact that there is usually a reason why people don't do things the supposed "easy way" already. That, and I've learned a few things about doing it your own way without asking the pros first, it usually ends in disaster when you go blindly into the fray and don't have any idea what you're doing. What has me interested, is a current necessity for, and curiosity towards, any and all alternatives.
Thanks for the replies. Especially alexhore, while a bit tongue-in-cheek, you've helped a newbie out. +1, lol
I'll be milling about somewhere on the internet until I can either get up the money to afford/build a connectivity kit + probe, or find an alternative method, although I'm getting the feeling it'll be the former.
Again, thanks :3
what the hell are you on about?
If you want to run unsigned code you need to RGH your xbox which has nothing to do with ixtreme, at least RGH is what it sounds like your after....also throwing around seemingly big words doesn't make you sound any smarter
