JTAG an Xbox 360: Protecting your console [Part 6]

The final tutorial for the initial JTAG hack and setup! So your console is now Jtagged - Congrats! In this final tutorial, I'll show you how you can keep it Jtagged and unbanned! This is all optional, but I strongly recommend doing it if you have Jtagged your Xbox 360.

First off, we will bridge 2 points on the underside of the motherboard. Heat up your soldering iron and simply smear the solder of the 2 points together.

JTAG an Xbox 360: Writing Custom NAND [Part 5]

Welcome to part 5 of my JTAG tutorial! Last time I showed you guys how to wire up the JTAG mod, now we're going to exploit the software =)

First thing you need to do is hook up your Xbox 360 to your computer again via the NAND cable you created in part 2.

JTAG an Xbox 360: Wiring the JTAG mod [Part 4]

In the previous tutorial, we read our NAND image and determined if it was exploitable by our CB version. If you have an exploitable CB, congrats - we're almost done! What we've do so far has not affected the way our console runs... it should still run like normal. The next step will cause the JTAG hack to change the way the console operates.

In order to trigger the JTAG hack, we will need to bridge 3 points on the motherboard with some wire and solder. The points bridged depends on the Xbox motherboard version. Find your motherboard version and wire according to the appropriate schematic.
