Xbox 360? Answered

SO im getting a new slim 360 soon and i want to mod my current one. Is there any way to J-tag it since it has the 12xxxx series dash (something like that). I really dont want to fork out all that cash for a mod chip for RGH. Is there any way I can use traditional methods of wiring components to J-tag my box? Thanks,    Bud

xbox 360 Question

I have a xbox 360 that used to work. My friend tried to fix  a 3 RROD on it. He said he tried many times to start the xbox up it would show a green light for a second, then turn off. I now tried starting it without the fans or heat sink, and the power brick light turns red. Can anybody help?

Xbox remote power ON

I have a softmodded original xbox, and it is located in my basement. It is a huge pain to go downstairs just to turn it on. I am looking for a solution. Originally I had planned to do WOL (wake on lan), but the nic doesn't support it. All I have to do it have something that acts like the front button: bridges two wires momentarily. Any suggestions

Xbox Disk changer? Answered

I had an idea for a xbox disk changer, considering my extreme laziness. Basically, It would be an old music disk changer with the same xbox style disk drive in it. The drives ribbon cable would connect from the changer to the xbox, then I'd record the disk switch (up & down) IR signal, and put it in my xbox controller. like www.instructables.com/id/Done/ . So to sum it up, I want to make a 6 disk xbox changer and put the remote in my controller. What I'm asking is how much of a hassle, and even if this is even possible. Thanks in advance                   ~Nameless~

Portable Xbox 360

I saw the website of Ben Heck (benheck.com) and I was wondering if it is really necessary to modify the heatsinks for the GPU/CPU and replace the fans. I am planning on making a portable xbox 360 in an alluminum suitcase with the LCD screen from a computer monitor. Is there any easier (legal) way to wirelessly obtain xbox live? What resolution monitor should I get? Any advice?

[TUT] Setup a VPN on an Xbox 360 and Xbox one Console

Info: There are many benefits to routing your xbox IP through a VPN connection. This ranges from utilizing exclusive American content, to hiding your IP from DDoSers, or even hiding your location from Doxers. This tutorial will show you a loophole that allows you to get around/avoid these hassles. Let us begin. Things you need: WiFi Connection Laptop with LAN port VPN (Virtual Private Network) Ethernet Cable VPN's: IPVanish PureVPN ExpressVPN This tutorial was done using IPVanish When installing these, make sure it sets you up with an American IP so you have access to American Xbox Content. How to Setup VPN on your Xbox Console Use Router Base Connection to Setup VPN on Xbox One of the methods of setting up Xbox One VPN is by tunneling your service via router and then connecting your gaming console and other devices to the router. Note that the setup may vary according to the router you use and the instructions provided by the VPN provider. Use the following steps to configure a VPN service on your router: You need an Ethernet cable and connect your modem to the WAN port in the router. Open your Router’s Control Panel – accessible from your system control panel. Go to the ‘Basic Setup’ / ‘Network’ / ‘Basic’ tab in your router control panel (where you can configure WAN or Internet settings). Enter the setup details provided by your VPN provider (username, password, gateway, subnet mask, etc.). Select the appropriate protocol settings and the change the ‘Connection Type’ based on your router and VPN providers instructions (usually to PPTP, but it depends). Select the appropriate DCHP settings depending on the requirements by your VPN provider. Click the Apply Settings / Save / Connect button and you are done. Now you can connect your Xbox to the router either through Wi-Fi or through Ethernet cable and can enjoy using VPN on your Xbox 360 or Xbox One. Use Your Computer to Setup VPN on Xbox You can also configure a VPN service on your Xbox through sharing the VPN connection on your personal computer with the gaming console. Firstly, setup a VPN connection on your computer: Go to ‘Network and Sharing Center’ from your system’s Control Panel. Click on ‘Setup a New Connection or Network’ and a wizard will appear. Select ‘Connect to a Workplace’ and click ‘Next’. The wizard will ask ‘how do you want to connect?’- select ‘Use my Internet Connection (VPN)’. Next you will have to enter the Internet Address and Destination Name provided by your VPN provider. Enter the details and click ‘Next’. Now enter the Username and Password of your VPN service and click ‘Connect’. If you already have a VPN configured on your computer, use the following steps to connect it to your Xbox: Connect your Xbox with your PC using an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi. Go to ‘Network and Sharing Center’ from your system’s control panel. Click on the ‘Change Adapter Settings’ on the left side bar. Right click on your VPN connection and click ‘Properties’. Go to the ‘Sharing’ tab and check ‘Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection’ option. Click on the drop down menu below ‘Home Networking Connection’ and select ‘Local Area Network’. Click ‘Ok’.

Can an Xbox 360 be "portablized"? Answered

I love videogames. I am going to buy an xbox 360 soon. The only problem is that i want to be able to play in the car, in the backyard, wherever without having to mess with a buncle of cables and a huge TV. This gave me an idea. A modder named Ben Heck (http://www.benheck.com) creates portable game consoles from existing ones. I could possibly use the motherboard and extend the ports, put it in an aluminum suitcase, and use an LCD computer monitor for the screen in the lid. I already have most of the materials I need, but I have a few minor concerns. I don't want the unit to overheat leaving me with a dead xbox. I don't know what resolution LCD monitor I should try to get. And I'd like to know if it's possible to hook up a battery that could power the completed unit. Can anyone give me some advice?
