    Question playing backups on a flashed xbox

    hi everyone im about to get my xbox360 flashed, once thats done do i just play my backups as if they was a normal store disc?


    or do i need to have some type of boot disc before i can play my backups

    i ask this because alot of people are talking about "wave" discs?

    sorry if my Q is stupid im a 100% newbie to flashed xboxes and their backups

    thanks guys for your help

    Yes backups will play like normal games. You'll need a boot disc when the firmware you used to flash the 360 gets old/outdated. Games will have new anti piracy and things like that.

    thanks so much mate thats put my mind at rest, it should be the newist flashed fw as im getting it done in the morning

    i was thinking it would be like that old swap magic thing on the ps2 where you would have to use a boot disc for every game!

    (im lazy) lol to used to booting all my wii games from harddrive!

    The XBox 360 isn't as simple as that. You'll need to find the LT+ firmware for whichever drive is in your XBox (Benq, Lite-On, Hitachi, Samsung, etc). The Lite-On drives usually require modification to the drive itself. Once flashed, if you plan on going online with XBox Live, there's still plenty of caution to be had. Look here and here if you need to manually patch your disc backup. Even then, don't bet the farm --- XL has a very nasty habit of eventually figuring out backups.

    nightstah i dont play online as i think online play should be free as im already paying for my IP for internet (its fine for the kids out there that have their family pay the costs but im 29 so its all me and im not rich lol i have the ps3 for online play and the wii) and im not the one flashing my xbox so the only thing that im worried about really is makeing the backups and running them but thanks (im sure the guy will use the newist FW for my drive so fingers crossed all will be good)

    You understand, you asked a general question and didn't fully elaborate on your needs. I find it amusing the information you asked for was given, only to be rejected as "unnecessary fluff." Be aware, if this is a new XBox 360, it comes with a year subscription of XBox Live --- food for thought.

    man you should get yourself a dreamcast on ebay or from a junk shop or something they are very cheap and had alot of good games, crazy taxi started off on the dreamcast along with alot of other very good games, theres also a lot of interesting homebrew on it to............... but saying that the wii is still god when it comes to homebrew apps!

    i wish i had an older wii instead of the black one so i could play gamecube backups
