Update Your Xbox 360 To The New NXE Offline

Update Your Xbox 360 To The New NXE Offline
Published by: wes213 on Thursday, December 11, 2008
Tagged: Hardware, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

Right now we have a thread open talking all about a way to download and update your Xbox dash to the new NXE build with out Xbox Live and after looking it over i must say it sounds easy enough to do so i have the full info, layout and links below.


To create an update disc you need the following:

* A DVD or CD burner.
* A blank, writeable DVD or CD.
* The update file from Xbox.com.

This procedure involves burning the DVD or CD by using Microsoft Windows DVD or CD burning software. If you're using third-party CD/DVD writing software, follow the instructions for creating a data disc.

The same steps apply whether burning a CD or a DVD.

To create a DVD or CD:

1. Click here to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate_Fall08.zip" anywhere on your computer.
2. Place a blank disc in your burner.
From Windows Explorer, select Open Writable CD Folder Using Windows Explorer or open the CD drive icon.
3. Open (double click) the zipped $SystemUpdate_ Fall08.zip folder and drag the contents of the zipped folder to the root of the CD Folder. If the CD write window doesn't open by default, drag and drop the folder onto the CD/DVD RW drive.

Note
If you are using an earlier version of Windows you will need to open the file using a separate utility (for example, WinZip).
4. In the Explorer window, click Write files to CD from the CD writing tasks or right-click the CD/DVD RW drive and select Write these files to CD.

Caution
The update filename and folder structure must be intact for the update to run properly.
5. Follow the steps in the CD wizard.
When you are finished with the wizard, the CD will eject. Your CD is ready.

To update the console:

1. Place the CD in the Xbox 360 console.
2. Power cycle the Xbox 360 console.
3. The update program will start automatically. Select Yes, update now and press A.
4. Wait for the update to complete.
5. When the console reboots, you're done.

XviD & Divx coming to Xbox 360?

XviD & Divx coming to Xbox 360?
Published by: JAy3k1 on Wednesday, October 11, 2006
Tagged: Hardware, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

The latest news floating around the web is that XviD and Divx playback will be coming to an Xbox near you soon...

It would seem Microsoft have announced at an event in Rotterdam called Mission 360 that there will be a firmware patch coming out in the next few months that will address the lack of support for these very popular video formats.

Also noted was that Microsoft want to release the Xbox 360 in a variety of new colours. Which is all well and good but I feel a little to late as i'm surely not going to go out and buy a new console just for a colour change.

Especially when there are some extremely nice 3rd party cases out there which I feel sure will blow away whatever Microsoft brings out . :)

ISO2GOD v1.3.5 Released - Windows and Linux

ISO2GOD v1.3.5 Released - Windows and Linux
Published by: forahobby on Friday, December 31, 2010
Tagged: Homebrew, Xbox 360,

KrK / Team 360h released a new version of ISO2GOD with full support for Windows and Linux.

"ISO2GOD" is a pc tool used to convert Xbox 360 and Xbox 1 ISO images into Games on Demand containers, removing the need for a DVD drive.

This app now comes in two variants, one with an installer to things a bit quicker for Windows users and one without an installer for Linux users. If you intend to use Iso2God on Linux you'll need to install Wine and Mono.

This release fixes a bug with the generation of CON headers where the Media ID has not been written correctly. If you run GODs from NXE this isn't an issue, but it will break the automated TU downloader in FSD when used on GODs.

Existing GODs can be fixed by writing the Media ID in the container header at offset 0x354. The Media ID should be written as hex values, eg: "45013401" -> 0x45, 0x01, 0x34, 0x01

XexTool v6.0 is now bundled to support reading details from newer XEXs.

ISO2GOD Features
- ISO to Games on Demand container conversion
- Support for XSF and GDF/XDVDFS ISOs
- Automatically reads title info from ISO default.xex
vMultiple I2G conversions can be queued up to run
- Requires .NET Framework 2.0

Whats New/Fixed v1.3.5::
- Media ID now written to CON header correctly.
- XexTool v6.0 now included to support newer XEXs.

Bungie: New Halo 3 Maps Coming

Bungie: New Halo 3 Maps Coming
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, October 17, 2007
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360,

Bungie developer's have mentioned that work is progressing on new maps for Halo 3.

Frank O'Connor "Work is progressing on new maps for future downloadable content, with the design and art teams vigorously engaged in the process. More entertainingly however, the ad-hoc test team of Bungie staff is enjoying these new maps greatly. My favorites are what I have already nicknamed Jodrell Bank and Moonbase Alpha.

I “invented” a game type on Jodrell Bank which is actually just Team Slayer with Swords and Snipers. Thanks to some unique geographical features of that map, it works great. Moonbase Alpha, on the other hand is best suited to objective games, like CTF and Assault, but it has some natural deadlocks that make Slayer interesting and Infection terrifying.

Which reminds me of one more downloadable map. The scariest map of all time. Dark, frightening and surprisingly enormous. One of the scariest things that has ever happened to me (and this in a lifetime fraught with terror) was racing away from a marauding gang of zombies in Infection atop a Mongoose, only to have one leap out of the darkness ahead and unseat me with a throaty scream. I call that level John Carpenter’s Prince of Dorkness. It’s not as catchy as Jub Jub, but it’s every bit as accurate."

There is no word when we will all be seeing this new downloadable content for Halo 3 but with internal teams already testing the new content it hopefully won't be long.
