    Hello everyone, my name is David and I'm from SE Ohio. I've owned my PS3 for years and until recently, it's all I've played. I got a deal on an XBOX360 and now I'm hooked. I generally play racing games but like all types. I've been a auto technician most of my life and work for myself in my own garage. I work on everything but my heart is in high performance work and tuning. I drag race my 86 Mustang coupe almost every weekend and so far I've been 9.86 @149mph. It's alot of fun, but when I'm not in the garage, I'm usually playing Forza 4.
    Ok, my first question is, What is 360 Revolution? I'm just now reading about it and jtag. Can someone fill me in on the basics, I believe I have an older version of the 360 and I think these are the ones that can be modified. I look forward to being a member here and getting the most out of my system, thanks!

    Welcome to XPG David, read the rules, stay active and enjoy our great community ;)

    360Revolution is a must for all players as it includes all you need for modding Gamesaves, GPDs and also includes a lot of handy tools and its free to all of our members.

    Almost all xbox's can be modified these days depending on what you are looking for:
    - a simple Drive firmware flash will allow you to play "backup" discs but with the newest games you will also need a specific burning drive to make the content fit onto a DVD+R DL disc.
    - another method is to buy hardware attatchments or Optical Disc Drive Emulators (ODDE) which can then be installed into your xbox, doing this will enable you to install game iso's onto an external USB drive and play directly from there without the need of disc's anymore.
    - a bit more complex method is a Jtag or RGH which will allow you to play just about anything including, fully unlocked XBLA games, unsigned content, custom dashes, completely modded games, emulators and much more, hardware features are the ability to install just about any size internal hdd and run games directly from either the internal or external USB HDD. Direct FTP access or Samba server connection to your box and even the option of using plugins to run games straight from your PC on your Xbox.

    hopefully not too in depth to get you started, you can also find a lot of mods available on XPG including some really good mods for Forza 4
    +rep for the great intro
