This tutorial is for all the guys who can't donate to become a VIP member on HQ and access all the homebrew files from the VIP FTP Server directly..

Yes you too can get the latest firmware and files for your 360 and its very easy. First check the download area here there are quite a lot of the latest files available right here, but for the files you can't find, this includes some firmware files. You need to get them from the HQ IRC or VIP servers if they are not here.
Let's Get Started
1. Ok first download and install "auto_xbins_2008.zip" which I have uploaded it here on HQ for your convenience.
2. Unzip the auto_xbins_2008.zip file to your computer and start the program.
3. When you start the Xbins Downloader 2008 program, it logs you on the IRC server and takes you to the correct location all by itself.
4. When logged in you will see 2 folders in the right hand window, one (1) for Xbox(original) and one (1) for the Xbox 360.
5. Go to the 360 folder, from there you will see all the sub folders listing all the other types of files including firmware. Yes the latest ixtreme is in there.
Warning (DO NOT BE GREEDY OF YOU WILL GET BANNED) get 1 file at a time, and if you get warned leave and come back after 24 hours and go again. (Speeking from experience here).
Just drag the file from the right to the left window.
This tut is for all those that think this info is out of your reach IT IS NOT and for those who want to keep these files and locations Hush, Hush and make money from free info, and for those who hate torrents as I do.
For help on installing the files go to the HQ VIP forums here and yes become a VIP Member it helps to keep this community alive and helps pay for the site fees. (They are not free)
