THIS INFO IS NOW OUT OF DATE - LT+ V3.0 IS NOW OUT WHICH FIXES ALL OF THIS


The recent silent DAE update stopped all AP2.5 / XGD3 backups from booting. Until a solid solution is released, here is a simple workaround

Thanks to Dattran over at XPGamesaves.com for discovering this simple work around.

For this example we are going to use MW3.

1. Get a USB flash drive, At least 1GB in size and format it (FAT)

2. Insert into Xbox and goto memory devices. Select USB and configure it as a storage device.

3. Download this MW3 Title Update. Click here.

4. Download Horizon (Great game modding app btw - JTAG / Glitchers should be using the sh*t out of this - you can use other apps but this is my tool of choice). Click here

5. Select Tools > Device Explorer

6. Plug in USB device to PC

7. Device will be detected. Select Inject File

8. Load the the MW3 TU that you downloaded.

9. Connect the USB stick to your Xbox. Restart and boot your MW3 backup.

Notes: You may have to delete the system cache after every time you do a fresh boot of the game. But hey, it works.

You can get other title updates from here: http://www.xbuc.net

Nothing is ever live safe. It may work, it may not. I'm not your mom make your own choice.

Please report if you have any success / links to TU's / better methods.

Working for me, I used the HDD adapter though, so it can be done directly to the HDD. Just a note though sometimes you may have to try different TU's from Xbuc to get it working, for example there were 2 MW3 Updates, a 3.14mb one and a 3.15 MB one, the 3.14 worked for me. Just keep trying different ones

Seriously, this is awesome.
Not only a great workaround for none booting games, but seeing as we can't connect to live just yet, when they fix glitches in skyrim ill be able to apply them this way.

Just out of interest, is there any way we can find out the media I'd for our xgd3 titles?

Great post uber, thanks very much

If you still have the ISO you ripped, load it into Iso2GOD and itll show it.
Brill, thanks for the reply guys. Still have the original ISO's as it saves me having to dig the original out to re-rip them.
