and search the forums, i'm sure there will be 1 on here somewhere
I just found my old 360 in my basement that I scrapped A few years ago due to a non-working disk drive. Its kernel number is 2.0.6690.0. Connecting to live is not a concern for me because I live in the country.
I have a couple questions about jtagging it.
If the disk drive is non working will I still be able to play 360 games from an external hard drive?
Will I be able to play new 360 games?
Does anyone have an easy to follow tutorial? I'm comfortable with soldering.
Is there any particular way you would recommend for my situation?
I skimmed through it and i feel like i understand most of it, except for the NAND part im not sure what i am supposed to do.
EDIT: okay i was looking at things a little more and this is how i am seeing it:
1.) I solder the connections in my xbox to some form of 25 pin male output.
2.) I hook it up to my computer.
3.) Dump NAND
4.) Check CB version
5.) Install Xell If applicable.
So I guess my main question is: an I take the 25pin to a usb so I can use my laptop?

you need an usb spi flasher for this. There's an example of it here http://img693.imageshack.us/img693/8...lashermini.png
But it's not easy to make. I'd say the cheapest way is via the 25 pin LPT cable.
Another way is to buy a cheap usb spi flasher. I bought this one a while back: Xbox-experts.com - Shop - BAConsoles.com Official Store.
But the easiest and most expensive way is to buy a nand x Xecuter NAND-X - ModTraders.co.uk. This include pin headers which will also make it easy to solder.
BTW that jtag tutorial from post 4 is way outdated, don't use it

NOPE! too much work! ill just make the 25 pin cord something like this
and just find a desktop with a 25 pin to use. do you have any up to date tutorials for xenon board?

The method for reading the NAND using the LPT cable method has not changed in years, only the programs that you use to read and test the NAND have been updated.
Doing a google search for JTAG Tutorial will show you have to make the cable and where to wire it to on the motherboard (it is the same location on all PHAT Xbox).
Try to download Jtag Tool 4.25 (I can't find a working download and do not allow it to connect to the internet as it will freeze trying to do an update) to read the NAND using an LPT cable or NANDPRO3.0 which is fairly easy to use but requires using the Command Prompt window and typing in commands.
I have been through this process and failed miserably so I hope you have more luck than me.
I'm not finding any downloads for it either. Is J-runner the same basically program?
