    This tutorial will show you how to convert games installed through the dashboard on your Jtagged Xbox 360 to Games on Demand games (God) to allow them to be played without the disc been present. This is a very basic tutorial i know, however the idea is to show people new to homebrew capable Xbox 360's what is possible and how to get started.

    With the game you wish to convert in the drive press ( Y ) to install the game to your hard drive.

    [​IMG]

    Select "Install game"

    [​IMG]

    You will be asked which storage device you wish to install the game to

    [​IMG]

    The game will then install

    [​IMG]

    You now want to load up Nxe2God, this application converts installed games (NXE) to Games on Demand games (GoDs) which will play without the disc been present in the console.

    I have a quickboot shortcut to NXE2God so i can launch it from the Microsoft Dashboard, if you dont you will need to launch it with XEX Menu or Freestyle Dash.

    [​IMG]

    Your hard drive will then be scanned for games that can be converted, when this has finished the games will be listed as seen below.

    [​IMG]

    Now all you need to do is press A and the games will be converted.

    [​IMG]

    You can now launch all your installed games without the disc from the Microsoft Dashboard, if you install any more games simply run NXE2God again to convert your new installs.

    I presume you have some file manager such as XEX Menu? put it on a USB drive and copy it across with that.

    So if you do these steps with a dummy profile, are you able to play the game from the HD with your proper Live account and being connected to Live without the fear of getting a ban?

    Nope you can not connect to live on a Jtag, or a RGH console when its booted in to the hacked MS dashboard.

    If you have a dualboot RGH console you have 2x MS dashboards, your FreeBoot one (hacked one) this is the stock MS dash with security restrictions removed and the normal one like any other non modded console out there.

    On your Freeboot dash you can sign your live profile in (offline) and load the game directly from the dashboard, on the stock MS dash that can connect to live the games will appear corrupted (as they are modified to work without the DVD)

    If you try and sign in to Xbox Live when the console is running the Freeboot dashboard (hacked MS dash) the console will be banned instantly.

    Ok understood, so you'll get banned even if you have a RGH only system and tell it to boot into the official MS dash from boot up if connected to Live even though its booting into the official dash ? I think the system im getting blocks all xbl connections when in RGH mode anyways, so i should be ok

    So can you explain whats the point in doing this method of running the games like GOD if you can just run FSD and loaded the games from the GAME tab from the HD anyway?

    If you boot the official MS dash with the RGH hack off you will not get banned.

    However if the RGH hack is on even if you are not in FSD and on the MS dash you will be banned before you connect to Xbox Live

    Its for people who dont use FSD, i use the MS dash on my Jtag so i can just have my main profile signed in and use it like a normal console.

    Gotchya! So this is the way you have your system setup is.....

    A dummy profile auto signed in (offline) on boot up>>>>>>boots into MS dash>>>>>> load your game via GOD>>>>>>then sign in with your Live (offline) account?

    And this method will not write anything to your profile its shouldnt so MS can see it? Or is it only if you run FSD at anytime is writes stuff to a profile it shouldnt, the normal xbox dash doesnt do this?
    But obviously you'll want a dummy profile signed in when you do this step.....

    Gotchya! So they way you have your system setup is.....

    Yes you can sign your profile in on the MS dash fine, the reason i have a dummy profile signing in is that i have FSD set to boot if i hold B down as the console is doing the Xbox animation when it powers on. That will take me directly to FSD so i can FTP content to the console.

    And yes i have a quick boot shortcut to NXE2God in the Demo's folder, I can also load XEX Menu and other homebrew from there.

    As long as you dont have your live profile signed in when playing any homebrew you are fine.

    insane, I am kind of fooked up in here. I have a profile with 30+k gamerscore. If I make my ixtreme flashed console into a dualboot RGH can I play the games using that profile only? My confusion is, I want to have the games played with that profile, and occasionally want to sign in to live (with RGH off). Is this possible? And if I play an ISO in offline and then connect to live (with rgh off) will there be any problem with achievements update?

    So this will take up the full 7 odd GB on the HD?? As i had an iso of Raiden Aces which was 7GB, i then used exiso to extract the file from the iso file, when it finished the folder for raiden was only 480 odd meg big!!

    So both methods will use the same amount of disk space?

    Yes installing games only installs the game data that is actually on the disc, not the random padding that fills up the rest of the disc.

    Im thinking over going over to using NXE instead of FSD. I currently have a fair few games, xbla games, and dlc content on my USB drive in a folder named 'Games', what do i need to do so these games will show up in NXE and do i need to change their location on my USB drive from being in the 'Games' folder?

    I appear to have the newer dash that what you have nutter, im guessing that when in NXE if i go to games then it will show all my offical games and xbla titles and not just RGH games?, if there a way to filter this at all so if will only show games on my USB drive? As at the moment its showing all my games but there all showing as only demos and not full cover arct just small icons

    Is there a guide to creating shortcuts at all?
