Alright, thanks for the fast replies
Btw, if you have the freestyle plugin enabled in the aurora it will still add data to the profile even if you sign in an offline profile, then switch to a live profile.
Plugins never seem to when I was messing about with testing years ago. I'd imagine it would be possible to design a plugin to do stuff to a profile, however the Freestyle one never seemed to do anything.
I believe most of it comes from the Xbox seeing the homebrew app as a new game, so wants to add it as a played title to your profile. Some homebrew such as the Snes emulator do add achievements. Some stuff doesn't visibly show up but still makes changes to the profile.
But when you hit the menu with the freestyle plugin it shows the temperatures and the litle menu on bottom with title id and disc, so that's like a homebrew in background, right?
You might well have to do your own testing for that then if you want to be 100% sure. It would seem it's changed a lot since i last used Freestyle.
I believe it's just a modification to the MS Dash so shouldn't do anything to your profile, as it's still the MS dash.
Hi, I'm dumb and have been using X360GameHack to patch all my games for years until recently what i was wondering is are all my old games Patched with X360GameHack safe to play on a LIVE enabled profile or would that be a no, I just recently found out Dashlaunch bypasses all the checks anyways and there is no need for X360GameHack anymore thanks.
The game should interact with your profile the same so you should be ok. You would be better using Dashlaunch though as you say, if your patching games you will have trouble using title updates.
If i use Xex to load game or XBLA i just have to sign in with my GT after game is loaded ?
And if i want to use DLCs how can i be safe using Xex with sign in after game is loaded ?
Yes basically sign in once the game is loaded and be sure to sign out when you quit if you have any sort of custom dashboard running by default. DLC should be fine as long as its final content from Xbox Live and not some of the beta stuff thats gone around in the past.
I apologise for posting on a rather dead thread; however, I believe I cannot be the only one still playing around with a JTAG in 2020.
My brother, upon learning that I'd owned a modified Xbox 360, asked if it were possible to use cheats (i.e. trainers) and earn achievements. Naturally, as a CS student I was curious and came upon this thread.
Using essentially the same technique outlined by others earlier I cross-referenced a test profile in a hex editor (in my case, FlexHex).
Using the launch title Gun and Fallout 3, I found that using a trainer makes absolutely no alterations to a profile.
A quick rundown of what I did:
Signed into the game on a new profile (created on the modified Xbox)
Played the game for a short period
Copied the profile to a PC, my control profile.
Then started the games again after initializing a trainer launcher using FSD's file manager.
Signed into the profile in-game.
Activated the trainers and enabling all cheats
Played the game, again for a short period.
Moved to PC.
Compared my control profile to the one on the pen drive.
I did, amidst all that, also try a profile (that had most recently played the respective game) from another non-modified Xbox and the files did change immediately even just running the game through the original dashboard.
I'm not familiar with what data is precisely stored in an Xbox profile and I can only guess may have something to do with the OS version or logging the serial number of all consoles that profiles has been on, or something.
Someone who knows more than me on this could perhaps explain what is going on there.
But running a trainer seems to make no difference, at least in my two tests.
Side-note: If you decide to try this test yourself be careful which game you choose as some games (Halo, for example) alter data in the profile thereby rendering it pointless.
I hope this helps someone.
Some great info @Enceladus always nice to see people still messing about with a Jtagged 360 in 2020 and doing their own research too.
