    This guide will show you how to inject demos, arcade games, apps, dlc using a usb drive and Usbxtaf v45

    1
    .Configure your 1gb+ usb drive for xbox 360 use if not already configured. If you want to skip some steps copy a gamer picture or theme to the usb so it creates the folders.

    Insanenutter has created a tutorial for configuring a usb drive.
    How to configure a USB memory stick to be used as Xbox 360 storage (Saves & Profiles)

    1a
    .Extract any demo,app,arcade game,dlc.

    2
    .Download usbxtaf here.With the usb drive connected, open the program.

    3
    .Select file > open first usb drive

    3a.If you have the content and zeros folder you can skip to #6.

    4
    .Right click on the data partition and select new folder.Type in Content and press ok.

    5
    .Select the content folder and create a folder named 0000000000000000

    6.Select the 0000000000000000 folder.Right click in the right side of the program then select inject folder.Select the extracted folder of the demo, arcade game,app,ect.

    Usually the right folder to inject is

    Game folder
    >folder

    Full path: content>0000000000000000>Game folder>folder

    7.It may appear the program is frozen or crashed that is normal.This is what it looks like when the demo,app,arcade game is injected properly.When it is unfrozen you can close the program and safely remove the drive.

    Thank you ! I have a question though. I have recently did that for Medal of Honor HD texture pack and it worked. But I am wondering if the same apply for the so-called title updates. Do we have to name folders the same way always for all title updates ? Thanks in advance for any contributor in answering this.

    It depends on the game.
    Some games have title updates that goes into the cache folder.
    There are also games like Black Ops that have title updates that go into the content folder.

    Thanks for the quick reply Michael_T
    I have found this for Assassin creed 3

    Media-ID
    3E4B911D

    Title-ID
    555308AE

    I assume that these are the numbers of the folder that should be created, right ? But do not really know whether in the cache or the content. And how many folder should be created.
    Appreciate any help.
    I would like to assume solution, please correct me if I am wrong.
    0000000000000000 into Content folder >>>> 3E4B911D in the zeros >>>> 555308AE into the 3E4B911D ?? Was it correct giving the Media ID ? Do we use the media ID or the title ID to create the folder after the zeros.
    Please let me know of the correct sequel.
    Much appreciated.

    Put that one into the Cache Partition/Cache folder on USBXtaf.

    Thanks Rick ! I assume it is still possible to use this program to do the title updates, no ?
    I just need the chain of folders I should create, the numbers of the folders that should be created and whether or not the name of the folder should vary depending on the title update Media or ID number.
    Thanks

    Its possible with this program but most title updates are uploaded by themselves with no folders and it makes it more difficult.
    The folder will be gameid?/00B000 you can find the game id by the folder your gamesaves are in.Content/E0000XXXXXXXX/gameid/00000001/gamesave
    For assassins creed III the actual folders are
    content>0000....>555308AE>000B0000>tu here

    Not all title updates will work this way, some go into the cache partition>cache>title updates here

    This doesnt work im also trying to use the ac3 patch. Nothing works. Whats the point if it doesnt work. Everytime the usb is plugged back into the 360 there is nothing showing id be surprised if this program actually does anything at all. Are there any other ways to do it.

    I use this program to extract demos & other content to upload here, how does it not work? Take a look at the post above yours.
    For this to work your folder structure has to be exactly the right folder names.You just can't inject a single tu file into any folder and expect it work.
    This is why i have made this tutorial.How To Extract/Inject Title Updates With Horizon

    The patch for ac3 just goes into the cache folder, done that a million times, however it doesn't show up on the xbox. Plug usb back into computer and previous injected file vanishes into thin air.

    Thats the first im hearing of it everyone says to put it in the cache directory. So first the primary profile must be dumped onto usb and then this injected where in your image and then put back into xbox and game profile moved back to hdd. Does that sound correct? If it doesn't go in the cache directory why is everyone advising to put it there?

    So Horizon avoids all of this complicated stuff about how many folders should be created and so on, isn't it Rick ?

    that worked great cheers. How do you find out the directory structure of where to put the patches the first folder makes sense but how can one ascertain the 000b0000 folder?

    Ok i notice someone says earlier to check to see where the gamesaves are stored. My ac3 saves are stored in titleid/00000001/saves here.

    So that doesnt work for finding out about 000b0000? How do you find this info out. Stuff like this should be in the guide.

    Yes. But it doesn't have a folder view to it and anything you extract you only get the file.

    I have many title updates on my usb drive and noticed that folder.This guide is more focused on demos,arcade games,apps,dlc because of they are uploaded with the folder structure.Title updates are usually uploaded by themselves and they sometimes go in the cache folder and others go in the 0..../gameid directory.I like to use horizon for that because it knows exactly where to place the title updates, it also auto creates the folders when doing so.
