HowTo play XBOX games on a XBOX 360

If you want to play old XBOX games on your XBOX 360 and they are not already supported by the XBOX emulator (see this list from Microsoft to find out) you now have the chance to do so.

1.) Get a JTAG XBOX 360*

2.) Download this hacked firmware** and be sure to check the readme files first

3.) Install XeXMenu on the XBOX 360 (or any other tool that lets you access the filesystem)

4.) Connect to your XBOX 360 via FTP

5.) Locate your second partition with the “compatibility” folder

6.) Replace the content of this folder with the one from the downloaded file from step 2

7.) Restart your XBOX 360, insert your XBOX game

8.) Have fun playing !

*A JTAG XBOX 360 is a console that has been hacked to play unsigned code. This article explains it in a good way and should answer all your questions. You can also buy already JTAG consoles on different locations in the web. They have the great advantage that you don´t have to care about anything and normally they have already a tool like XeXMenu (like mentioned in step 3) installed and ready for use. On the other hand these consoles are very expensive. Mine was about 250 €.

**The hacked firmware was probably released by a guy named Xorloser sometime in 2007.  Any gratitude goes to him. There´s a thread at the XBOX scene forum about it you might want to check.

  1. whoah this blog is wonderful i like studying your posts. Stay up the great paintings! You already know, a lot of individuals are looking around for this information, you could aid them greatly.

  2. You are in point of fact a good webmaster. The website loading velocity is amazing. It seems that you are doing any distinctive trick. Also, The contents are masterwork. you’ve performed a wonderful process on this subject!

  3. Of program, if you have other points that are more entertaining than games, than go
    do that too. However, both were needed as both did a lot of damage
    and provided some stale gameplay. In case you do not
    possess a strong thought of what your teammate’s characters
    can do, and where they’re positioned, then you might miss out on several effortless kills,
    and even get your self killed needlessly.

  4. Comments: I don’t have a “favorites” list of video games
    because over the years and all the different genres and platforms, I think it’s impossible to create a fair and accurate list; however, if there
    is one game I claim to be my favorite it’s Halo: Combat
    Evolved. An excellent mixture of elements from the original MSX and NES Metal Gear
    games and Playstation’s Metal Gear Solid, this Game Boy Color game brought excellent
    stealth action to the portable scene. Within a few moments, the Pokemon will download to your saved file.
    Summary: A search for the fabled “Atlantis of the Sands” propels fortune hunter Nathan Drake on a trek into the heart
    of the Arabian Desert. Conversely, Princess Toadstool
    is the slowest at running and picking up items,
    but can float through the air for a short distance.

  5. Hmmm…your comment went straight into the spam folder, but reading the first part of it, I´m not so sure if it´s really spam. So if your are a real person and not some chinese spam bot give me hint ;-). Btw.: you´re right. It´s not possible to create a fair and accurate list. I only wanted to quote MY favs. So it doesn´t have to be fair. Good luck with your web blog.
